The cool weather is very very gradually descending upon us. But all the signs of fall are here already…whiff of festivities in the air, dried leaves and new produce…. Hello Mister Pumpkin!
How I love this humble but super versatile vegetable. And what better way to celebrate it than to make this gorgeous Cashew Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl!
We all know how healthy this vegetable is, don’t we? But let me jog your memory a bit…its a rich source of Vitamin A ( for great eyesight), anti oxidant beta carotene ( for cancer protective properties), phytoestrogens ( for lowering blood pressure) and fiber. And of course, cooked any which way, its absolutely delicious!
I like to keep some roasted pumpkin on hand always. Its great for adding on salads, pulaos, vegetable curries, soups and smoothies. So today I’ve got this rich and amazingly creamy smoothie that really does taste like a silky smooth pumpkin pie, without all that butter and cream. And yet keeps you full and satisfied for quite a while. My favourite homemade Cashew Milk gives it another health and taste boost, though you could easily use any other milk or yogurt too.
I hope you’ll try this healthy, protein- rich fall smoothie and enjoy it as much as we do!
