Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl

Fall is here and nothing reminds me of the season more than pumpkin. It doesn’t seem to matter what form it takes, I love pumpkin anything!

But put pumpkin in a smoothie bowl – and it just about tops everything else pumpkin! So now you are probably asking yourself, what’s a smoothie bowl? Well, it’s exactly what it sounds like. A smoothie that is made thick enough to place in a bowl and eat with a spoon. The best thing about smoothie bowls is you can top it with your favorite healthy toppings, anything from granola to berries, sliced fruit to nuts and seeds or even dates and extra spices. This makes a smoothie bowl so much more satisfying than a smoothie in a glass. It’s that spoon/fork to mouth relationship with food that gives you the feeling that you actually ate a meal rather than just sipped a drink. In other words, it’s perfect!

Smoothies are also a healthy way to start your day!  Now you can have your cake (er, I mean pie) and eat it too when you whip up this nutritional, low cal smoothie with the same much loved flavor as your favorite pumpkin pie. The best part, you don’t even have to feel guilty about it!

The star ingredient of this smoothie, pumpkin, ups the health quotient even more by providing important antioxidants for heart health & plenty of Vitamin A, essential for good eyesight.
