Pumpkin Cinnamon Date Smoothie

A rich smoothie with notes of pumpkin spice.

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie (Vegan)

Some of my joys of fall include: leaves turning and falling to the ground, cool breezes, invigorating hikes, cozy sweaters, hot tea, pumpkin patches and rich, aromatic flavours. Most coffee shops sell their version of a pumpkin spice latte this time of year (known as the PSL). Unfortunately, these drinks often don’t even include any pumpkin! Additionally, syrups are often used with chemicals that are believed to be carcinogenic. Since I love warm, cozy spices like cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, I made this flavourful smoothie using plant-based ingredients with healing properties that provide nourishment and satisfaction. The best part is you can make it right at home. Enjoy and please share your creations with me!
