Fat-Free Vegan Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
Even though its unseasonably chilly here in NYC (44 in mid-May?) I'm still enjoying smoothies for breakfast. Not in the mood for my usual peanut butter cup smoothie or neapolitian smoothie I decided to shake things up a bit with pumpkin.... mmm... it's like pumpkin pie in a glass.
Have leftover pumpkin? Make these fat-free pumpkin-raisin oatmeal cookies!
BTW, Happy Herbivore will be down for routine maintenance this evening starting around 8:00 p.m. EST. Sorry for the inconvenience. It'll be back up and running within a few hours.
Rich and creamy, this smoothie tastes like pumpkin pie in a glass... and it much more slimming!
1 whole bananas (frozen)
¼ cup canned pure pumpkin
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
¼ cup nondairy milk
a dash of ground ginger
1 tsp pure maple syrup
Combine all ingredients in a blender and whiz until smooth, adding more non-dairy milk as necessary to achieve proper consistency. Add more pumpkin or spice to taste. Garnish with a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg. (1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice = 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp cloves or allspice, 1/8 tsp nutmeg).
