no-pumpkin pie custard-like smoothie!

oh goodness, is this delicious!
smooth and thick like a custard, cold and refreshing as a smoothie, comforting like a pumpkin pie, though i can't remember the last time i had a pumpkin pie! the last "pumpkin" pie i had was at organic lives (last year maybe?) and it wasn't made with pumpkin either!
-1 cup almond milk
-1 frozen banana
-1 frozen persimmon
-1 nub of ginger
-a good-sized shake of cinnamon
-a sprinkle of lucuma
-a sprinkle of mesquite
-a small splash of maple syrup

tea tumble, spastic plastic

my everyday tea tumbler, my third or fourth one from starbucks korea, finally tumbled onto the floor after 3 years of use.
same thing happened to my others (i have bought this exact tumbler a few times! despite it being plastic, i love it for my love of korea and how it would often start conversations with korean baristas at starbucks. i'm not going to starbucks anymore since they stopped offering free organic soymilk for cardholders. boo!). and i have splurged for my dream tea tumblr - this glass one from david's tea. i have broken 2 glass ones within 6 months or less but i'm still hopeful this one will last longer!
