A healthy, naturally sweetened smoothie made with cranberries, pumpkin puree, spices, and almond milk.
Ingredients
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh cranberries
  • ½ cup organic pumpkin puree (we like Pacific Foods)
  • 1 pear, core removed (peeled or unpeeled, your choice)
  • ¼ cup pecans
  • 4 large medjool dates
  • 1-2 Tablespoons chia seeds, optional
  • 1-2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean
Instructions
  1. If the dates aren't soft, soak them in the 1 cup water for about 10-15 minutes to soften them up.
  2. Place all of the ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. To make it colder, substitute some of the water with ice cubes.
