Vegan Pumpkin Smoothie Made with Coconut Milk with Cinnamon and Nutmeg to Make it Festive. Make Blueberry Syrup at Home to Add to the Smoothie
Is it ok to blame the pumpkin smoothie for being so addictive?
I don’t care, I am blaming it for being so irresistible.
Its all the nutmeg and cinnamon that just puts me in a happy place and I can’t stop drinking it.
For this recipe, I made my own blueberry syrup, but, you can get store bought ones that are really good. When I made my Tropical Smoothie, I used Torani’s syrups. They make DELICIOUS natural syrups like this (affiliate link) blueberry one.
You can also use blueberries to make a super easy blueberry vinaigrette
If I am making pumpkin recipes already, that must mean summer is over, right? I can’t believe that it will be Halloween soon.
Before we talk about this pumpkin smoothie, can I take a short diversion?
Answering your questions
Yes, you can use almond milk or hazelnut milk in this recipe. I have also heard people try it with oat milk and they love it. Try it and let me know what you think.
Frozen blueberries would be perfect in this recipe. Just don’t thaw them. Put them first in the blender and gently blend them before adding the rest of the ingredients.
The recipe uses canned pumpkin puree which is easy to find. You can use fresh pumpkin by pureeing it first.
Raspberries and blackberries would be perfect in this recipe. Fresh berries would be good or you can use frozen too.
So, make this vegan pumpkin smoothie and let me know what you think. What kind of milk did you use?
