Pumpkin Pie Smoothie (Vegan, WFPB)

It is officially that time of year where the weather is started to cool down and everyone is starting to fill up with pumpkin flavored everything. I love a good smoothie to start the day and this time of year I start making my pumpkin pie smoothie. For this recipe we will be using the frozen pumpkin puree that I did a recipe and video on recently. I find that on cool mornings the warming spices in this recipe are just what I need to start my day. Just like the rest of my recipes, the amounts can all be changed to better fit your pallet and preferences. If you want this to be sweeter, add some more maple syrup. If you are looking for more cinnamon, go ahead and sprinkle some more in. I have found that this is also a great treat to share after dinner time when we have guests over during the Fall and Winter seasons.

Here's what you will need!

  • 6 ice cube sized pieces of frozen pumpkin puree

  • 1 cup of water

  • 1/2 cup of a plant based milk

  • 1 tbs maple syrup

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

  • 1/8 tsp clove

  • 1/8 tsp ginger

  • Blender

Directions:

  1. Place all of the ingredients into the blender/ food processor/ blender bottle

  2. Blend on a medium-high speed for 10-45 seconds until a smoothie consistency

Enjoy!
