Pumpkin might be the most relatable food item when it comes to fall forward cravings. However, it is a squash, and that’s rarely thought of as a good base for a smoothie! However, with it’s smooth texture and heaps of health benefits, it’s a worthy addition to your smoothie meal plans.
A smoothie bowl is a relatively new way to enjoy smoothies, as you pour your thick blended smoothie into a bowl, and top it with complimentary ingredients.
We wanted this bowl to be packed with flavor and nutrients, all differently benefitting the body. From skin and hair to your tummy and metabolism…this breakfast/lunch/snack is everything your body is going to be craving this Autumn.
Plus, it might keep you away from all that sugar filled pumpkin pie…
(or at least satisfy the craving for a while!)
Prep Time: 5 minutes
3/4 Cup Pure Pumpkin Puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 cup non-dairy milk (we used unsweetened almond)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Pinch of All-Spice
Pecan Halves *optional*
Dried Cranberries *optional*
Slices of Green Apple *optional*
Combine all your ingredients (minus the toppings) into a blender and blend or pulse until smooth.
Pour into a single serving bowl, and top with the toppings of your choosing. Eat with a spoon!
