I’ve been absent from this space for a few weeks, but I am still here! This last month of pregnancy is taking its toll on me, and I haven’t felt much recipe inspiration as we prepare for the arrival of our baby boy. He’s due in 2 1/2 weeks, and we couldn’t be more excited!
So… in lieu of a new recipe, I’m going to devote today’s post to a round-up of my favorite pumpkin recipes from Healthy Food For Living. Halloween has come and gone (we took Lily trick-or-treating for the first time, and she LOVED it!), but pumpkin season endures. I say pumpkin recipes are fair game right up until Thanksgiving, so without further ado, here we go!

I’ve cut back on my caffeine intake – most days I don’t have any – but there are some mornings or afternoons that require a little pick-me-up. Being pregnant is tiring in and of itself, but being pregnant (especially in the third trimester; 5 weeks to go!) with an almost-three-year-old is downright exhausting.
Thank goodness for preschool (Lily goes 2 days a week for 2 1/2 hours, and she loves it!) and for this cappuccino, which has become my go-to caffeinated beverage.
The recipe calls for just three ingredients and a high-speed blender, such as a Vitamix. You can probably get away with using a regular blender, but you might not get the same amount of frothiness; and let’s be honest, cappuccinos are all about the foam!
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Heat milk in microwave or on stovetop until steaming.
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender (such as a Vitamix) in the order listed.
Place lid on blender, turn it on, and slowly increase speed to medium-high (speed 8 on a Vitamix). Blend for 30 seconds, or until desired frothiness is achieved.
Pour cappuccino into a mug and serve immediately.
