Description

Play up fall flavors with this smoothie made with pumpkin, kale, and pumpkin pie spice. A dash of cinnamon (I used the ceylon variety) on top will give a nice kick when you take your first couple of sips. The banana gives this smoothie a lightly sweet taste, but you can add another natural ingredient like honey or maple syrup if you want to take it up bit.
*Vegetarian, Vegan options listed below*


Ingredients

  • 1 cup kale, torn into smaller pieces
  • 1 cup original (unsweetened) rice milk (or other non-dairy or dairy milk), plus more as needed to achieve desired texture
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin (this will yield a light pumpkin flavor – add more to taste)
  • 1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • dash cinnamon, for decoration and flavor
  • honey, optional sweetener, as needed (or use maple syrup for vegan option)

Instructions

  1. Combine kale, rice milk, banana, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice in a blender. Blend till ingredients are combined and smooth, about 1-2 minutes, or until smoothie reaches your desired consistency. You may need to scrape down the sides with a spatula to get everything fully integrated. Taste-test and add sweetener of choice if needed, to taste.
  2. Pour into a serving cup, and add a dash of cinnamon on top. Enjoy!

Notes

This single serving recipe easily multiplies to serve more.
