PUMPKIN SPICE SMOOTHIE BOWL RECIPE 

Ingredients 

In a blender, combine:

  • 2/3 cup milk of choice (I used coconut milk)
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin (I like to use organic canned pumpkin with no added ingredients)
  • 1/3 cup frozen sliced bananas (optional, but I think this helps bulk up the consistency and lends a little sweetness)
  • 1 small handful of ice
  • 1-2 teaspoons honey or sweetener of choice
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (make your own here)
  • Optional toppings: nut butters, slivered almonds, hemp seeds, chia seeds

Directions

  1. Mix well, then pour into a small bowl.
  2. Sprinkled a line of raisins, a line of chia seeds, a line of slivered almonds, a drizzle of raw cashew butter and top with a sprinkle more of pumpkin spice

This recipe can be adjusted to fit your taste, as you may like less honey and more pumpkin, or more spice and less banana. Use this recipe to create your own and see what kind of delicious combinations you come up with! Dig in.
