TheBlenderGirl.com > Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
Now that Halloween is behind us, it's time to gear up for the holidays. I'm going to share some awesome holiday recipes for Thanksgiving and Christmas from some great cookbooks over the next couple of months. But, I wanted to start this awesome pumpkin pie smoothie to start things off!
My dear friend Dr Michelle Robin asked me if I had a killer pumpkin smoothie recipe for a function she is having at Your Wellness Connection this week, and I decided to tweak the existing pumpkin pie recipe on the blog and make it better. I was never quite happy with it. It was one of the first recipes I posted here, and my smoothie creations have developed and changed over the years that I didn't want to send something that wasn't up to the standard of the smoothies in my app. There is a no-pumpkin pie smoothie in my smoothies app. It's really delicious, alkaline, and healthy. But, you need to use coconut meat and specialty stevia to make it. I wanted to make sure I had something really accessible for you to make during the holidays.
For conventional blenders soak your cashews for the best results.
This new pumpkin pie smoothie does every creamy bite of a self-respecting pumpkin pie justice; and hits the spot for those of us not inclined to bake to get our fix. Enjoy!
