When I met with Beaming Juice and Superfood Bar about hosting a cooking demo at their store this month, I knew I wanted to include a recipe that helped usher in the fall season.
Since they’re all about the smoothies, I decided to take the ingredient I most associate with autumn and turn it into a healthy, vitamin packed, scrumptious smoothie recipe.
That ingredient is pumpkin. The giant orange fruit is loaded with Vitamin A, filled with fiber and packed with potassium. Combine pumpkin with banana and this is one potassium, vitamin filled smoothie.
I added Beaming’s Superfood Smoothie Blend to the drink to pack it with extra energy boosting, immunity supporting and mood enhancing ingredients.
- 1 ½ cups pure pumpkin
- 1 banana (peeled and chopped)
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 cup coconut water
- 2 tbsp honey
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp ground nutmeg
- 2 tbsp Beaming Superfood Smoothie Blend
Begin by adding the pumpkin and banana to a blender. Add the almond milk, coconut water and honey. Top with the cinnamon, nutmeg and superfood smoothie mix.
Blend until smooth and creamy.
Pour into a glass (or two, if you’re into that whole sharing thing )
Fall flavors + health benefits = one super pumpkin smoothie!
