Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Happy October! This past weekend it really started to feel like fall- crisp, and slightly cool. On Saturday night I wore a jacket out to dinner, which is always a clear sign of weather change. This really is my favorite time of year, I love New York in October.

With fall here in earnest I have found the desire for all things pumpkin spice coming on strong. In fact, I have spent the last few weeks perfecting a Clean, Pure and Simple Pumpkin Spice Granola that will be making its debut (for sale!) soon. Stay tuned here for details!

The easiest and quickest way I know to get my pumpkin spice fix is with this Pumpkin Pie Smoothie. It tastes like a sweet and creamy dessert, yet is nutrient dense enough to be the perfect lunch. I often add a handful of kale to up the nutrition factor, but for the sake of a pretty photo omitted it this time. This smoothie is made even more delicious with the addition of OMilk’s new seasonal Pumpkin Pie-Spiced Cashew Milk  (available in NYC by delivery). Don’t panic if you can’t get your hands on any OMilk, regular almond milk ( preferably homemade) would work great here as well!

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

  • 1 cup almond milk or OMilk Pumpkin Pie-Spiced Cashew Milk 
  • 1 cup raw sweet potato
  • 1⁄4 of a ripe avocado
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 10 -­20 drops liquid stevia
  • pinch sea salt
  1. Combine all ingredients in a high speed blender or Vitamix.
  2. Adjust sweetness to taste.

      Raw sweet potato is a great stand in for pumpkin! It gives the smoothie a great color and taste! Plus it’s loaded with good for you vitamins!
