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. Smoothies are one of my simplest, low effort ways to ensure I am obtaining plenty of nutrients in my day. We know consuming more plant foods can help prevent some long-term conditions, including heart disease and type 2 diabetes. This is why adding fruits and vegetables, like pumpkin, to our smoothies can be health-promoting.

Since I love warm, cozy spices like cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, I added these to this vibrant smoothie of nourishing plant-based ingredients. I hope it also provides you joy and satisfaction. Enjoy and please share your creations with me!
