Vegan Smoothie Recipes: Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

October 2, 2015
This morning was the first day that I woke up and felt like fall was officially here. My cat was curled up into a ball next to me and the floor was cold on my feet when I finally had the courage to get up and out of bed. To me, fall means pumpkin flavored everything. I tend to stay away from bakery and cafe made sweets and treats due to the high amounts of sugar and other unknown ingredients in them, so I decided to make my own pumpkin spiced drink. Pumpkin is not only delicious, but it also contains wonderful health benefits. The ½ cup of pumpkin used in this recipe contains 100% of your daily value of vitamin A. Additionally, it is very rich in fiber and antioxidants. In combination with the ground cinnamon and ginger, this smoothie works as an effective digestive aid.
