Vegan Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
Vegan Pumpkin Spice Smoothie – healthy, nutritious and easy to make, perfect for fall. Loaded with amazing ingredients that will help you stay energized.
This vegan pumpkin spice smoothie is rich and creamy, light and refreshing! It almost tastes like pumpkin pie, but if you don’t normally have pumpkin pie for breakfast, this smoothie is ideal for that.
Fall is approaching slowly and pumpkin season has just began!
Adding two of my favorite winter spices – cinnamon and ginger made this smoothie taste like holiday dessert. Ideal for a quick and filling breakfast. I sweetened it with some agave nectar , since pumpkin pure is not sweet .I don’t recommend that you use the pumpkin pie filling in this recipe, since we are trying to create a healthy smoothie and canned pumpkin pie filling contains lots of sugar and spices. I threw in some pumpkin seeds for extra texture, which also are a good source of omega 3 and rich in zinc. I also prefer using coconut milk in my smoothies, but almond or 2% cow’s milk can be substituted.
I’m surprised how much I enjoyed this vegan pumpkin spice smoothie, since I’m not a pumpkin fan at all. I recently decided to start experimenting and testing some pumpkin recipes and this is one of them. The recipe is completely vegan, unless you decide to substitute coconut milk with cow’s milk.
I really hope you try it and let me know how it is.
