I can’t believe I finally made my first pumpkin smoothie bowl of the season! Last fall I was making them every week! I’ve just been on such an oatmeal kick lately so I’ve been choosing that over smoothies.
I decided it was finally time to change things up and make my favorite pumpkin pie smoothie bowl for breakfast. It’s still pretty warm here in Southern California, so this cool smoothie is still fitting for the weather. I absolutely love still having summer like weather here but I must admit I miss the cooler crisp air and smell of the leaves changing back east.
Anyways, this smoothie bowl seriously tastes like pumpkin pie, but it’s good for you! It’s packed with protein, carbs from the pumpkin and banana, and healthy fats from the almond butter. I always add some granola on top for a little crunch too!
If you’re a pumpkin fan, this smoothie is definitely for you! Let me know if you give it a try =)
