Pumpkin Pie Power Smoothie

I love Thanksgiving! Especially when it comes to delving into pumpkin pie. Yep, I eat clean most of the year, but I find it hard to resist pumpkin anything. To celebrate the festive Thanksgiving season, I wanted to come up with a healthier treat that tastes like pumpkin pie, but doesn't add the refined sugar and calories.

Here is a fab Pumpkin Pie Power Smoothie inspired by a version that I found online at Maoomba.com. I made a few changes to suit my tastes and get some more greens in too 🙂


HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 6 ice cubes (I froze my unsweetened vanilla coconut milk in ice cubes in advance

  • 2/3 cup non dairy milk  (I used 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla coconut)

  • 1 fistful of baby spinach

  • 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin

  • 1 ripe banana (look for the spotty ones..they are extra sweet!)

  • 1 tbsp flax meal

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (great source of healthy fats)

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice or allspice


OPTIONAL:

  • Add in a vanilla protein powder of your choice. If not adding protein powder, try adding hemp hearts or drink with your eggs during breakfast for a good balance of protein, fibre and healthy fats.


WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blitz until smooth.

ENJOY! xo
