This maple pecan pie smoothie tastes just like a melted piece of pecan pie a la mode.
Rob and I were in Ojai, California this week and we were baking! Unfortunately not the put-a-pie-in-the-oven kind of baking, rather the it’s-too-hot-for-humans kind where you’re sweating in embarrassing places you didn’t know could weep for themselves.
OK, so perhaps I’m overstating the heat just a tad, and I shouldn’t be complaining after escaping the slap-you-in-the-face oppressive heat of Arizona. But when you’ve been standing under the hot sun in a field knee-deep in bushes for two hours waiting for the light to change, it brings out the where-is-my-assistant-with-the-umbrella princess side of any girl!
We came back to our hotel and were in desperate need of refreshments. Or more accurately, treats! Rob was craving a piece of mum’s pecan pie. Flashback to Rob’s infamous homage to “George Costanza with the chocolate éclair” when under the guise of doing the dishes after one of our dinner parties was sprung surreptitiously shoveling leftover pecan pie from the plates of our dinner guests!
Today, as we couldn’t zap ourselves back into our kitchen; (and quite frankly, had no inclination to bake any further) we decided to do the next best thing, and turn on our blender and make a pecan pie smoothie.
Much like my apple pie, this pecan pie smoothie does even the most coveted slice of pecan pie justice. In the spirit of replicating our perfect mouthful of pie (or more accurately, pie worthy of stealing off other people’s plates) we used maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla make the pecans sing.
This pecan pie smoothie is a decadent dessert in a glass, and will rock your world.
