Does the thought of drinking an icy cold smoothy on a July winter morning leave you shivering?  Want a yummy healthy breakfast that  can be whipped up in a few minutes?  How about a warm smoothie with soothing  sweet honey, cinnamon and ginger flavours? Then give this  truly comfort food for a cold midweek morning a try.  This delectable drink was made as I  had some left-over pumpkin from the weekend’s pumpkin soufflé. Not a bad way to get rid of left-overs, I would say.
