Vegan Pumpkin Smoothie

IMG_1926 - Version 2

Happy Fall! In honor of this great season, I decided to create some pumpkin recipes for you. To kick things off, here is a pumpkin smoothie recipe! Now, for the most part, I am strictly a fruit and veggie smoothie girl.  I will add things like almond butter and seeds to my smoothies, but never anything like pumpkin.  So – when I was making this smoothie, I was very worried that I would hate it. But guess what… I didn’t! It was delicious.  And good for you! This smoothie has about 320 calories in it, it’s high in fiber and has a good amount of protein.

Let’s get into the recipe –


For this pumpkin smoothie you will need:

1/2 – 1 banana (if you want a bit more banana flavor, add the whole thing)

1/2 cup almond milk

1/4 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup canned pumpkin

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp agave nectar

2 tsp spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger… I used a blended spice, so add what you like!)

ice or freeze your banana before you blend!
