3 More Smoothies: Fall Edition

Hey hey hey! I dont know about you guys, but once the calendar hits September I’m in automatic fall mode. Now I’m not talking PSL and Ugg boots.. but I definitely love to start busting out my jeans and booties. I also get the sudden urge to indulge in those cozy fall flavors that we love so much, such as cinnamon, pumpkin and all things spicy.

One of my first posts was “my 3 go to smoothies” and I’m back today with 3 more smoothie recipes for you all. This time, autumn inspired. These are perfect for this time of the year when the weather is still warm so you may not be ready for hot drinks but if you’re like me, and you’re craving your fall fix…these should do the trick! But don’t get my wrong, you can keep indulging on these bad boys all season long!

Now, onto the smoothies!

Pumpkin Pie vegan

  • 1/2 cup 100% Pure Pumpkin Puree (I put mine in the fridge so my smoothie is cold)
  • 1 frozen Banana
  • 1/2 cup milk of your choice (I like unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk)
  • 1 TBSP Maple Syrup (or any sweetener of your choice)
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice

* I also added 1 cinnamon grahm cracker (cause it was literally right on the counter while I was making this) and I think it adds that extra something to mimic the pie crust. I also sprinkle some crumbs on top.

**You can buy pumpkin pie spice in the store, however it is super 
easy to make if you already have all of the spices at home. 
I got my recipe from The Pioneer Woman. We keep our spices in jars anyway, so I just make a batch at the beginning of the season and it usually lasts me all Fall/Winter long.

 

 

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal vegan

  • 1 Medium Apple- Diced
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup Milk of your choice
  • 1 TBSP Almond butter (I used Justin’s Maple Almond Butter)
  • 1 TBSP Chia Seeds (optional)
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon

 

Vanilla Chai vegan

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp of each:  ginger, cloves, nutmeg, black pepper
  • 1/2 TBSP Chia Seeds (Optional)

**I didn’t have cardamom, and I couldn’t find it anywhere for less than $15. They say Cardamom is the most important spice in a chai but I didn’t use it and I think it still turned out great. **

 

The directions for all of these are the same, throw the ingredients in a blender and enjoy!

Let me know how you like these & I’ll talk to you guys soon!

xoxo, Imrelle
