Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

by Marissa on September 28, 2011

I love the tastes and smells of Fall and it’s clear I’m not alone judging by the popularity of the Pumpkin Spice Latte. In my quest to recreate the warm taste of spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and clove in a cup, I created the Pumpkin Spice Smoothie and as I write this am slurping up the last few delicious drops. It may not be warm, but I’ll take a nutritious smoothie over a cup of coffee any day!

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
1/2 can pumpkin
1 c almond milk
1 frozen banana
1 c crushed ice
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp pure maple syrup
1 tsp cashew butter
dash ground ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp clove
1/8 tsp nutmeg

Blend until  smooth and sprinkle with cinnamon

I think I’ve made it very clear on more than one occasion that I am pretty much obsessed with green smoothies.

I “met” Lisa Orgler of The Lunch Box Project on Foodbuzz and was immediately enthralled with her food art. It’s whimsical and totally adorable. I submitted the smoothie photos from my blog in the hopes of getting my creations illustrated and luckily, the talented artist loves smoothies as much as I do! Check out her […]

I mentioned in a previous blog post that I wanted to try the Vegan Overnight Oats (VOO) from Oh She Glows. I made them twice last week and have to say that I can’t get into them. I’m not sure if it’s the texture, the flavor or both but they aren’t for me. I felt […]

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I LOVE smoothies – especially in the heat of Summer! Satisfying and filling, they are my go-to, never-fail breakfast and snack of choice. As long as they are they aren’t of the Jamba Juice/sugary, pre-made mix variety, smoothies are nourishing, convenient and fun to make. After […]

I’ve been traveling overseas for the past week and feeling pretty yucky as a result. Not only has the time difference thrown me off but my regular eating habits have become lax. I woke up this morning ready to get back into my routine and craving my usual morning smoothie. Panic-stricken that I had no […]
