Creamy Pumpkin Smoothie

I was recently inspired to create my own version of a Creamy Pumpkin Smoothie after trying the recipe on Fat Free Vegan. I didn’t like how the recipe made a very heavy liquid pumpkin pie. I like to eat Pumpkin Pie but somehow the texture of drinking one just didn’t work for my tastebuds.

So, here’s my version of the Creamy Pumpkin Smoothie. It serves 2-4 depending on how big your serving is:

  • 1 1/2-2 cups Publix Greenwise Original Soymilk (Has no chalky aftertaste. You can use Almond milk if you don’t like Soy)
  • 1 medium size ripe banana (if you use a frozen banana don't add ice)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup Organic Canned Pumpkin (Not Pumpkin Pie Mix!)
  • 4-6 whole cashews
  • 1 raw Majool Date
  • 1 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 8 ice cubes
Place all ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until smooth.  Add a bowl of fruit and you have a super healthy and filling breakfast.

Thanks! I don't even have a nice camera. I just use natural light and use the macro lense.
