Sweet Autumn Smoothie

November 1, 2017

Sometimes smoothies seem like a summer thing; but if you use seasonal fruits and vegetables you can drink smoothies all year round. I love pumpkin everything, but at some point in the Fall I get a little pumpkin’d out but still want to indulge in yummy festive Fall flavors. This smoothie is a delicious and nutritious Autumn breakfast or snack. I like to freeze the ingredients ahead of time in a container and blend with the nut milk and ice in the morning for a quick and easy breakfast.

INGREDIENTS

*Makes 2 servings

2 C cooked and peeled sweet potato

1 banana

1/2 C raw walnuts

6 pitted dates

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 C vegan milk (I used flax milk)

1 C crushed ice

DIRECTIONS

Blend all ingredients together in blender until smooth then enjoy!

*optional- sprinkle more spices and/or walnuts on top for extra flavor and texture
