One Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl Recipe to Rule Them All…

All joking aside, I am just as ready for this season as any basic white girl. Let’s face it… I’m just as guilty!

While some parts of the US are already freezing over, the weather here in Arizona has JUST begun to cool down! This leaves me feeling super conflicted.. on one hand, I am ready for delicious fall flavors. On the other hand, it’s still hot AF outside!

I laugh so hard when people admire the “beautiful weather we’ve been having”… Listen: Just because it isn’t over 100ºF, a 95º day doesn’t make it “winter”.

The Solution? Easier Than You’d Think!

This brought me to the idea of a Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl! I want to be able to indulge in all of the best seasonal flavors, without heating my house up with the oven! Killing three birds with one stone (what’s the vegan equivalent to this saying!?), the pumpkin pie smoothie also helps cool me down! Perfect for when I’m feeling hot and hangry.

This delicious pumpkin pie smoothie is luxuriously thick and creamy, thanks to frozen bananas! We topped the work of art with sliced apples (I used my two favorites: Granny Smith and Honeycrisp!), Goji Berries, Granola, Cacao, Pumpkin Seeds, Hemp Seeds, and a raw homemade date caramel sauce!

This makes the already delicious smoothie into a nutritional powerhouse, full of:

  • Plant-based protein,
  • Powerful antioxidants,
  • Beta-carotine for eye health,
  • and Zinc for immune support

 

What a great way to keep yourself happy and healthy through the holiday season!

Ingredients

    For the Caramel Sauce
  • 1 cup dates, soaked in hot water
  • 1 cup water, just less than a cup's worth
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1-2 tablespoons cornstarch, to desired thickness
  • For the Smoothie Base
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (no added sugar!)
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice (OR 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon cloves)
  • 1 heaping tablespoon almond butter
  • Splash of non-dairy milk, if necessary

Instructions

  1. Throw the caramel sauce ingredients into blender, save the cornstarch
  2. Process until smooth
  3. Pour into separate bowl, don't worry about scraping it 100% clean, I intentionally left a bit to sweeten the smoothie more
  4. Mix in cornstarch 1 tablespoon at a time to desired consistency
  5. Add the smoothie ingredients to blender
  6. Blend until creamy! I didn't use any milk because I wanted a "nice cream" texture, but add any as needed for your blender
  7. Pour into bowl, garnish, and top with a drizzle of caramel sauce!
