Paleo Pumpkin Pie Smoothie (Nut Free)

Paleo Pumpkin Pie Smoothie - Nut Free-4259

 

 

PP-Halloween-Round-Up1-1024x256

Perfect timing for Fall!  I have been using this recipe since last Winter and never got around to posting it in time for the season.

I tried more pumpkin pie smoothie recipes than I can count until I finally found one that reminded both me and my husband of our favorite pumpkin pie.

I knew I wanted a nut free version so my son could enjoy it too, but raw cashews or pecans (especially toasted ones)  would be fabulous here too!

I use my Blend Tec for smoothie making (among other things!).  While this smoothie would work well in a normal blender, you might want to steam the carrot a bit first so they pulverize.  Just one of the many reasons I adore my machine..it makes my life easier and removes additional steps from my plate!!

I also make my own coconut butter to save money.  Rather than pay $8 or more a jar, I spend a couple of dollars for a pint!

You might also want to try my Pumpkin Cranberry Smoothie, it is another Fall sensation in our household!

    Hey Tessa. Girl, we are TOO much alike. I have a nearly identical recipe in the line up. But you know, we do have very similar and exquisite taste right friend. I’ve been making a pumpkin and banana smoothie every other morning for a couple weeks now. Sometime with other squash like butternut or delicata. I was suffering from a flare last month and could ONLY digest smoothies, so everything was going in there. :-)

    Can’t wait to try your version (with the yogurt), oh this sounds so good.

    Hugs,
    –Amber

  2. I can’t wait to try this, it looks delicious! I was actually planning on using dairy free yogurt in my version but didn’t have any. …your pictures are beautiful :)

    Guess what’s for breakfast in the morning? No bananas, so will be trying a different fruit combo. Don’t do carrots either. Going to try agar. Will keep you posted on how it turns out :) Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. That is perfect for the season! Sounds so yummy! I would love it if you would link up with us at Healing With Food Friday! http://peelingbacktheonionlayers.com/healing-with-food-friday-5/
