Maple and Pumpkin Smoothie

Veronika Sophia Robinson

Vegan pumpkin smoothie

Pumpkin pie in a glass!

  1. 3 cups steamed butternut pumpkin
  2. 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
  3. 8-12 tablespoons maple syrup
  4. 2 cups organic coconut milk or cream
  5. Half cup rice milk
  6. 1 avocado
  7. 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  8. Pinch allspice
  9. Pinch nutmeg
  10. Pinch ground cloves

Allow the pumpkin to cool. The avocado adds creaminess, and is nutrient rich.

Combine all ingredients until smooth and creamy.

Optional: for a protein burst, add half a cup cooked (and cooled) quinoa when blending.

Serves four.
