Green Pumpkin Smoothie Bowl
Two for the price of one! All the flavors and nutrients of the pumpkin spice smoothie with some leafy green love added into the mix. Serve it in a bowl with nutritional boosts as toppings or add in some additional plant-based milk and pour it into a glass. It’s a fall family favorite!
½ cup almond milk (add more if necessary)
1 cup spinach (or any combination of leafy greens)
½ cup pureed pumpkin (if canned, make sure BPA free)
1 banana, sliced & frozen
1 tablespoon of plant-based vanilla protein powder
1 tablespoon almond butter (cashew butter works too)
½-inch slice fresh ginger root
up to ½ teaspoon cinnamon (or to taste)
1 chopped date (or a drop of stevia for a lower sugar option)
Pinch of sea salt
Top with pumpkin seeds, additional cinnamon, pomegranate, cacao nibs
Blend nut milk and spinach in a high-speed blender. Add in pumpkin puree and blend. Add in remaining ingredients plus additional nut milk to desired consistency. This is meant to be a thick smoothie to be eaten with a spoon. Enjoy!
