Happy Wednesday! Today I'm pleased to publish an exclusive sneak peak into A Nourished Holiday, my Holiday cookbook, launching later next month. I'm sharing a recipe from the book in hopes that you will firstly enjoy the heck out of it because--yum. But also so that you will be inspired to purchase a copy for yourself and/or a friend when it's released!
So without further ado, may I present to you the Pumpkin Pie Smoothie?
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
(makes 1 smoothie)
¼ c raw cashews, soaked in water for at least half an hour
½ large banana, frozen
¼ c pumpkin puree
1 t pumpkin pie spice
2 t maple syrup
½ c organic milk (or non-dairy substitute, if desired)
Pinch of coconut sugar (optional)
Strain cashews, discarding liquid and tossing nuts into a high-powered blender. Add milk and blend until nuts are liquified. Add remaining ingredients and blend on high until you have a smooth texture. Serve in a glass and sprinkle with optional pinch of coconut sugar, if desired.
