VEGAN PUMPKIN SMOOTHIE
It’s our favorite time of the year to eat. We’re obsessed with pumpkin, and apple, and warm and comforting foods.
Although our vegan pumpkin smoothie isn’t warm in temperature, it definitely has a warm and comfy flavor, thanks to the cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves.
We use real pumpkin puree and almond milk, and a frozen banana to make it super thick and cold.
The spices and pumpkin do a great job of hiding the flavor of the banana, so don’t be afraid to try it if you don’t like bananas.
THE BEST DAIRY-FREE PUMPKIN SMOOTHIE
There is absolutely no need to make this smoothie with dairy milk, because almond or cashew milk is just as creamy and so much better.
Omitting dairy also removes cholesterol and saturated fat, as well as other unmentionables that comes in cow milk.
We’ve made this almond milk pumpkin smoothie with many kinds of plant-based milk options, and they all worked out perfectly.
Here are some of the plant milk options you can use:
- Almond milk
- Cashew milk
- Pea protein milk
- Oat milk
WHAT’S IN A PUMPKIN PIE SMOOTHIE?
We only use whole foods in our pumpkin smoothie recipe.
- Pumpkin puree
- A frozen banana, this gives it a great creamy base and makes it nice and cold.
- Pumpkin spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves.
- Pure Maple Syrup, which make it a refined sugar-free smoothie.
- Plant-based milk
It’s a healthy and nutrient rich breakfast or snack.
We don’t add ice to our smoothies because the water dulls down the flavors of the pumpkin and the spices, and there’s no need to use ice because of the frozen banana.
This smoothie is thick like a shake, so if you’ve been looking for a vegetable shake recipe that tastes good, this is it.
FIBER – 1 cup of pumpkin puree provides 7.1 grams of fiber.
POTASSIUM – 1 cup gives you ten percent of the daily value of potassium.
IRON – pumpkin is high in iron.
BETA CAROTENE – pumpkin provides antioxidants that help prevent certain types of cancer.
