It has been so hot and humid for the past week and it’s making me want Fall to come soon! Yesterday I went on a run and afterwards I was craving something cold and Fall like. This pumpkin pie smoothie was the best Fall-inspired thing to have. It’s packed with pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, coconut milk, and more! You’ll be in the festive spirits in no time. 

This pumpkin pie smoothie is filled with plenty of nutritious ingredients like the pumpkin. Pumpkin aids in weight loss since it is filled with fiber, so it will keep you feeling full for longer. It also protects your skin with free radical neutralizing powers of carotenoids that keep cancer cells at bay! 

So get that blender out and get your taste buds into that Fall feeling!!

Ingredients:

1 (14-ounnce) can light coconut milk, chilled

4 pitted Medjool dates

1/2 cup canned unsweetened pumpkin pie puree

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

5-6 ice cubed

*optional: 2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Directions:

  1. Soak pitted dates for 30 minutes in water. This will soften the dates and helps the blender blend them smooth. If you have a Vitamix you can skip this step since the machine is powerful enough to blend the dates.
  2. Place all ingredients into blender and blend until smooth. 
  3. Pour into 2 glasses add some ground cinnamon on top and serve immediately.
