Drink My Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
With fall weather in the air (sort of...80's in October??!!) and pumpkin everything all around us, I am excited to share my vegan pumpkin smoothie recipe with you! Don't get caught up in the fake, chemical laden "pumpkin" foods and drinks all around you. My version is a clean, healthy choice loaded with real pumpkin, real flavor and real nutrition.
Being so unusually warm here in the NorthEast, smoothies will still cool you down on these warm Fummer / Summ-all Days. The secret ingredient behind by my fall spice, aside from using real pumpkin puree is Simply Beyond's Organic Spray on Spices. If you are not familiar with this amazing line of herbs and spices (that have a 2 year shelf life!) you must check them out here.
I also happen to be on their website with additional recipe suggestions for use of their products.
Their herbs and spices are one of my culinary trade secret's that I'm sharing here with you.
PS - they are organic and have so much robust flavor!
PPS - You can now link directly to them from my own website
Some nutritional benefits you'll gain from this drink:
High in potassium - great for post exercise, lowers blood pressure
High in vitamin A – great for eyesight
High in iron – great for energy
Vegan AKA Dairy free / Gluten free
