Inspired by Chip Ahoy's recipe for turkey broth, I took a look around the kitchen this morning to see how leftovers could be repurposed into something non-leftover-y and still tasty and appealing.
What to do with the remaining calorie-laden pumpkin pie? That is always a pressing morning-after-Thanksgiving question. You can't just ignore it, but you are not feeling good (probably) about eating pie for breakfast, and you don't want to throw it away because of the starving children in India your parents told you about when you didn't clean your plate back when.
Well my health conscious friends, you can re-purpose that left over pie into a nutritious smoothie.
Because smoothies are by definition and common belief the healthiest thing you can ingest before, during and after exercise. Smoothies are so healthy that are sold in health food stores. If that isn't proof, I don't know what is.
Scrape the filling off the crust, place filling in blender, discard the evil crust. Add 1 medium banana, preferably frozen. Then add:
Blend until it looks like a smoothie. Or a smoovie if you never studied phonics. Drink to your health!
Pro tip: This recipe is easily adaptable to apple pie and other fruit pies. It won't be quite as successful with pecan pie, kidney pie, shepard's pie, cheesecake and that awful fake pie thing made with Cool Whip and crushed Oreos.
