spiced pumpkin smoothie

High in fibre, protein, potassium, antioxidants, and omega 3’s, this smoothie bowl is all kinds of good!

I absolutely love this breakfast treat and the kids will go crazy for this too, especially during Halloween. If you eat dairy, you can also use yogurt instead of coconut cream, but personally coconut makes everything that much more delicious.


Serves 1 | Ready in 7 mins

  • 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • 1 cup steamed pumpkin
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1 scoop vegan protein powder (I prefer pea protein)
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch ground ginger
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • Pinch ground cloves


  • 2 tbsp flaked almonds – toasted
  • 1 tbsp. grain free granola
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • Pinch cinnamon
