Breakfast Nog

I like to make this quick drink for breakfast.  Sometimes I make it at other times during the day as well.  It keeps me full until early afternoon.  It is loaded with protein and the pumpkin puree is low in fat and calories and rich in disease-fighting nutrients

1 cup of milk
1 egg  (we only eat farmers' eggs, as they are packed with many more nutrients than cheap grocery store eggs)
Splenda, to taste (about 1 tsp)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla essence, optional

Heat the milk in a large cup in the microwave for 2 minutes.  Meanwhile, in a blender, food processor or with an immersion blender, mix together all the other ingredients.  Mix in the hot milk.

You can drink this immediately, or if you like it thicker, you can microwave it a further minute or two at 30%.  If it curdles, you can blend it at high speed before drinking.
