Be warned that this recipe is for pumpkin lovers only! I use my homemade pumpkin puree that I make each autumn and freeze in 2-cup increments, but canned solid-pack pumpkin should work just fine. If you find the pumpkin flavor too intense, try adding a frozen banana. You can play around with the flavors easily by adding some vanilla extract or pumpkin or apple pie spice instead of just cinnamon. My 5-year old and 1-year old love it as the recipe is written. Another option is to not freeze the pumpkin and heat everything through to a simmer for a hot drink.
Place the pumpkin puree in a freezer bag; store in freezer for at least 24 hours.
Heat the bag of pumpkin puree in the microwave on HIGH to soften, 1 to 2 minutes.
Pour the milk into a blender. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and pumpkin; blend until smooth.

Eating good breakfast to start the day has become a good habit. It’s a fabolous way to start my day off healthfully. The sweet hit from the fruit wakes me up and gives me power to take on the morning. The sweetness is more vilified as the root of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your digestive system and helps keep you feel full longer, and less likely grab a snack out of the street food before break .
Making fruit a morning habit is simple . Easy as put the fruit in your fridge next to the milk or on the table next to your grain bowl , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll find it. Before you eat the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
