Today marks the first day of Fall! Boots and a light jacket Season is the way to go. Although it’s still high 80’s and sunny here in LA, I still #pumpkinspiceeverything. (Yes, I really just made that a hash tag…)
Fall only means the best things ever to come. Halloween, “pumpkin spice EVERYTHING”, cool brisk nights, leaves changing and more reason to eat vegan comfort foods.
Let’s start with something small like this Pumpkin Spice Smoothie that will be even more tasty with a shot of espresso and then you can call it the PS Mock-acinno. This is super simple, quick and easily can be made into a super food by adding in chia seeds or hemp seeds.
1/2 cup organic pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie)
1 1/2 cup almond milk
1 banana, frozen
1 tsp pumpkin spice
1 tsp agave or any vegan sweetener of choice
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp all spice
3-4 ice cubes, optional
Blend ingredients together until nice and creamy. Add a few ice cubes if need be for a more frappe like consistency.
A few shakes of pumpkin spice on top is always a good idea!
