It’s that time again…
Canada is one of the few countries that experience all four seasons. If you’re lucky enough to witness the changing of one season into another, it’s quite incredible. As you know, I love to travel but I do love being back home in Canada during this time of year.
There’s something spectacular about watching the trees turn from uniform green to all varieties of red, gold, orange and brown. Add in the crisp breeze, awesome holiday traditions and pumpkin everything (such as the famous pumpkin spiced latte), and you’ve got yourself the best season of the four.
Since I love both fall and Canada so much, I decided to play around with some smoothie ingredients that remind me of the season, and I came up with the below recipe. Even if you’re not a big pumpkin fan, give it a try, and it may turn you.
Fall/Canadian Inspired Smoothie
To make this delicious smoothie, you are going to need the following ingredients:
Ingredients (makes one large smoothie)
- 1/2 Cup of Pumpkin Pure
- 1 Cup of Almond or Coconut Milk
- 2 Tablespoons of Plain or Coconut Flavoured Yogurt
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 1 Frozen Banana
- 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
- 1 Tablespoon of Maple Syrup
- Pinch of Ginger
- Extra Cinnamon and Pumpkin Seeds to Garnish (Optional)
- Pumpkin Scented Candle to Set the Mood (Optional)
Put all ingredients into a blender. Blend ingredients until you get a smooth consistency. This will take about 1-2 minutes. Once everything is all blended together, put your smoothie into your favourite glass or mug. Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a few pumpkin seeds if you’d like.
If you can’t find the above ingredients in your local grocery store, you can purchase them online for a decent price. I’ve linked some of the above ingredients just for you.
