The perfect way to welcome in the fall season, this superfood pumpkin smoothie is both healthy, delicious, rich in potassium and vitamins, gluten free and vegan!
Earlier this week I met with Beaming Juice and Superfood Bar about hosting a cooking demo at their store later this month.
I knew I wanted to include a recipe that helped usher in the fall season, and since Beaming is all about smoothies, I decided to take the ingredient I most associate with autumn, pumpkin, and turn it into a healthy, vitamin packed, scrumptious smoothie recipe!
Pumpkin is loaded with Vitamin A, filled with fiber and packed with potassium. Combine pumpkin with banana and this is one potassium, vitamin filled smoothie.
I added Beaming’s Superfood Smoothie Blend to the drink to pack it with extra energy boosting, immunity supporting and mood enhancing ingredients.
- 1 ½ cups pure pumpkin
- 1 banana (peeled and chopped)
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 cup coconut water
- 2 tbsp honey or agave
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp ground nutmeg
- 2 tbsp Beaming Superfood Smoothie Blend
- 1 cup ice
Begin by adding the pumpkin and banana to a blender. Add the almond milk, coconut water and honey. Top with the cinnamon, nutmeg and superfood smoothie mix.
Add the ice and blend until smooth and creamy.
Pour into a glass (or two, if you’re into that whole sharing thing 😉 )
Fall flavors + health benefits = one super pumpkin smoothie that I can’t wait to sip on all through the fall!
