This is a smoothie perfect to drink during autumn and winter- it can be drank room temperature or slightly warmed up as it contains those lovely warming spices, like ginger, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg. Plus it's filled with vitamins minerals, good dose of fibre and good fat- and very soothing for the gut.
Pumpkin spice smoothie
1 1/2 cup of almond milk (make sure it contains only almond paste, water and sea salt. I buy this one in Estonia.)
1/2 cup of coconut milk
1/2 cup of pumpkin puree (I made a bigger batch of oven baked pumpkins the other evenings and using it for different recipes)
3 Medjool dates, pitted (I buy these ones in Estonia)
1/4 cup of hemp hearts (leave a little bit for serving). I buy these in Estonia.
1/2 tsp of cinnamon (leave a little bit for serving)
1/4 tsp of ginger
1/4 tsp of cardamom
pinch of clove powder (I use coffee grinder to grind clove)
pinch of grated nutmeg
1tsp of vanilla extract
1 tbsp of collagen powder (optional, but a good way to get protein in)
Blend all the ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth. You can then serve it as is from the glass and topped with cinnamon and hemp seeds or warm it up to your preferred temperature.
