Matcha Pumpkin Spice Smoothie {gf,v,rsf}

Updated: Mar 15, 2021

How many pumpkin smoothie recipes is too many? If you said their are never too many, you're right. This is number three, and I don't plan on stopping yet. I mean, I love pumpkin spice, I love matcha, and I love smoothies, so this combo just sounded like a no brainer. However, as we get further away from summer, I'm suddenly not craving super fruity smoothies, such as mango, strawberry, raspberry, pineapple, etc. So, for this recipe I used a mix of banana and steamed, then frozen cauliflower to get the perfect, creamy smoothie base. Other nutrient dense ingredients include: rolled oats, matcha almond butter, dates, pumpkin pie spice, dairy free cashewgurt, spinach, and more. This smoothie is packed with veggies, antioxidants, plant based protein, healthy fats, and complex carbs. Not only does it taste good, but it also makes for a well balanced, filling meal. I can’t explain the sweet flavor the matcha and pumpkin spice make together; I guess you’ll have to find out for yourself!
