Pumpkin season is here!
I am definitely that person who is obsessed with pumpkin everything once October hits. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin rolls, pumpkin pie…you name it and I’m already putting a fork in it. The great thing about pumpkin is it also has amazing nutritional benefits like being a great source of Vitamin A, potassium, and fiber! I recently discovered these health benefits and decided to make a yummy fall smoothie that would fill me up without all the normal added sugars that are in a lot of pumpkin sweets.
The best thing about this smoothie is how quick it is. Throw all the ingredients in a blender and you’re basically done! Also, a lot of these ingredients are interchangeable so don’t be worried if you don’t have an exact ingredient!
Keep reading for the recipe to my pumpkin smoothie bowl!
- About 1 1/2 cups of pure pumpkin puree
- 1/2 a frozen banana
- 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 handful of chopped dates
- 1/8 cup of chia seeds
- 1 Tbsp of nutmeg
- 1 Tbsp of allspice
- 1 Tbsp of cinnamon
- PaleoKrunch grain-free granola for topping
- Pure honey to drizzle on top (take this out if you want a vegan version)
Put all your ingredients in your blender and blend until it seems thick and smooth. Pour the smoothie into a bowl and top with granola, chia seeds, and drizzled honey! Other topping ideas are apples, blueberries, or any fruit of your choice ! I just didn’t have any fruit available when I made this but in the future I’ll definitely be adding apples.
I hope you all like this smoothie idea and get a chance to try it out! If you try it feel free to share it and tag me on Instagram @delightfuldaysblog!
