Vegan Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl Recipe
The leaves are changing colors, and you can practically hear the zombie-like groan of white girls everywhere: “Pumpkin Spiiiiiiice”. Lattes, ice cream, candles, and… pumpkin pie smoothie bowls? Hell yeah! This Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl Recipe is everything you’re craving, packed into one delicious (and healthy!) bowl!
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!
