Fall may be gone, but there is still a chill in the air, and the last throes of the Harvest Season are still yielding cold-weather specialties. At Maury Place, the team will occasionally serve a delightful smoothie before breakfast. They have many favorite combinations of ingredients including: Very Berry Smoothies, Blueberry-Pineapple Smoothies and Melon Smoothies.
If you love pumpkin pie, you’ll enjoy this Pumpkin Smoothie recipe, care of Maury Place at Monument:
