Harvest Pumpkin Smoothie

Skip the chemical-filled pumpkin lattes and enjoy this delicious and nutritious smoothie instead. For extra oomph, add a quarter cup of strongly brewed black coffee or a shot of espresso.

 

Ingredients

 

1 cup unsweetened and carrageenan-free almond milk (or skip the store bought milk and simply use one cup water and 1/4 cup raw almonds or raw cashews)

 

1/3 cup pumpkin puree (Farmer’s Market brand comes in a box or BPA-free can; be sure not to buy pumpkin pie filling, which often contains added sugar)

 

1 frozen banana, cut into 1-inch pieces

 

1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

 

1/8 tsp turmeric

 

1-2 tablespoons of your favorite seeds such as hemp, chia, or flax

 

1 scoop vegan vanilla protein powder (I love Garden of Life RAW Organic Vanilla)

 

Directions

 

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Top with cacao nibs.

 

p.s. This is also delicious with a small scoop of unsweetened cacao or cocoa powder!

 

Enjoy!

    This recipe sounds great!
    I might even try it with coconut kefir.
    I do have one question: Does it contain any pumpkin?? or just the spice? interesting…I may try a 1/4 c pumpkin too :)
    Hope you are well!

    ps I’ve had a number of people ask about the next trail map to wellness “spa” day. Considering a fall event and spring…may be calling you soon!

      Yes, Laura it does contain pumpkin! I completely forgot to put in here in the recipe until someone pointed it out to me on Facebook today! It’s been wrong for a year now. :-( I did adjust the recipe on the site to say 1/3 cup pumpkin puree.
