Description

This easy Vegan Pumpkin Pie Smoothie is creamy, frosty and full of pumpkin pie flavor.  It is full of good-for-you ingredients: it is protein-rich, fiber-rich and full of healthy fats. Plus it contains two vegetables and is refined sugar-free.


Scale

Ingredients

For the smoothie

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or oat milk)
  • 1 cup frozen riced cauliflower
  • 6 soft Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup homemade pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup raw slivered blanched almonds (not sliced almonds)*
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1.5 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups crushed ice cubes

Optional Smoothie Boosters

  • 13 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon blackstrap molasses (for added iron, calcium, potassium, vitamin B6, magnesium, copper and more)

Garnish


Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and puree from low to high until silky smooth. Use your blenders tamper/plunger if needed.
  2. Set out four glasses and just before serving place 1/4 cup easy homemade granola at the bottom of each glass.  Pour the smoothie overtop the granola.  Garnish with 2-3 tablespoons of freshly made homemade coconut whipped cream, more granola and a dusting of pumpkin pie spice or ground cinnamon. Then, enjoy it with a spoon.

Notes

If your dates are not moist and have dried out too much you can soak them in boiling water for a couple minutes before pureeing. If you have a powerful blender though it shouldn’t matter too much.

For a nut-free version omit the almonds and use oats or coconut cream instead.

In this recipe you can really taste the pumpkin flavor so I highly recommend using homemade pumpkin puree instead of canned.  The homemade pumpkin puree is so much creamier, thicker and sweeter than canned (which can be bitter).
