Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

I’ve never been struck by pumpkin fever like everybody else during the fall. I suppose having crappy pumpkin pie as a kid (read: not vegan, all processed) turned me off to all things pumpkin. This year I rediscovered the magic of pumpkin through many different preparations and was intrigued by the concept of making a pumpkin smoothie for breakfast. I drink smoothies 3-4 times a week as my first meal of the day and the nutritional value of pumpkins made this an easy choice to mix up my repertoire. It might seem weird to add salt to a smoothie but it’s key in bringing out the rest of the flavors, trust me.

  1. I make this with So Delicious coconut milk and yogurt, and it's sooo good! Great idea to refrigerate the pumpkin first. It's kind of a no-brainer, but one I managed to overlook. (Thus the anonymous comment posting!) 🙂
