Raw Vegan Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

It's pumpkin season and what better to celebrate than a healthy twist on pumpkin pie?! This smoothie tastes exactly like chilled pumpkin pie in a glass, but without all the added saturated fat and refined sugar that most conventional pumpkin pies are stuffed with. This thick and creamy smoothie makes a delicious filling breakfast or mid-day treat and helps boost your energy levels!

Pumpkin is packed with an array of health benefits - it helps support eye health; decreases the risk of lung cancer in smokers; provides 246% of the RDA of vitamin A; protects from age related macular disease; rich in B-complex for a healthy nervous system and calmness; rich in minerals like copper, calcium, potassium and phosphorous; and is loaded with fibre and mono-unsaturated fatty acids!


If you want an amazing blender, I highly suggest you purchase a vitamix! It makes the smoothest, most creamiest smoothies, raw soups and sauces I have ever experienced! If you purchase a vitamix through Live Love Fruit, you will get FREE shipping and handling! Click HERE to purchase.

Ingredients:
- 1/2 cup pumpkin pureé (you can buy organic, no-sugar pumpkin purée from a can at a health foods store, or you can make your own RAW pumpkin puree by blending some pumpkin in a vitamix with a little bit of water)
- 1/2 tsp. pumpkin spice
- 3 medjool dates, pitted
- 1 banana, ripe and spotty
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla bean
- 1 cup young thai coconut water or fresh almond mylk (freshly made is best, for the raw effect, or you can use almond milk from the store)

Blend all the ingredients together for 30 seconds and enjoy!
