I love smoothies. And I love pumpkin. So I made this vegan pumpkin pie smoothie last weekend. I still can’t believe that something this delicious can be so easy!
I don’t really like fall and winter (except for the rare sunny days), but at least we get to eat all these delicious cinnamony desserts, and hearty stews and soups. So even if it’s cold, rainy, or snowy outside, there’s something positive about it.
And I mean isn’t it just awesome to snuggle up on the couch with a smoothie that tastes like liquid pumpkin pie?
How much better can life actually get?! Well, sure it can always get better, but isn’t it just nice to feel happy about these little things once in a while?
I actually planned on making a vegan pumpkin pie last weekend, but then we spent the day in the city and came home way later than I expected. This doesn’t happen very often, but I just didn’t feel like standing in the kitchen anymore. So I kind of changed my plans and made this super quick and easy pumpkin pie smoothie with cinnamon instead. It really is just perfect for a lazy weekends. I mean you don’t even have to chew, you can just sit in front of the TV and enjoy this pumpkin deliciousness. Kind of like pumpkin pie for lazy people. ;-)
It’s creamy, thick, packed with flavor, and just so YUMMY!
I’m making smoothies almost every day (Flo even calls me a smoothie addict and I think he’s right), but usually I only make green smoothie with kale or spinach. Of course, I use tons of fruits too like oranges, bananas, apples, and berries, but I rarely make fruity smoothies without any green veggies in it. I think I should do this more often as this pumpkin smoothie was also super delicious without any greens!
You’re only 10 ingredients and 5 minutes away from this delicious pumpkin spice smoothie. Oh and 5 of these 10 ingredients are spices. ;-) The recipe really couldn’t be easier. Put some pumpkin puree, some almond milk, a large banana, some ice cubes, and the pumpkin spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, gloves, and ginger) into a blender and process until smooth. That’s it!
Hope you’re all having an awesome and hopefully sunny weekend! xx
As always, I love hearing from you!
