Taste of Fall Smoothie

Taste of Fall Smoothie

I love Fall favors! They are comfort foods, so I’m trying to think of ideas on how to incorporate them into my food plan in a healthy way.  In Southern California the Fall remains fairly hot until mid to late October, so this smoothie will cool you down, while giving you that cozy Fall feeling.  I tested my blood sugar about an hour and a half after drinking 3/4 of a cup of it, and it was at a very low 91!  Here’s the recipe:

1/2 Can Organic Pumpkin

1/2 Can Organic Sweet Potato (softens the pumpkin flavor)

1/2 Can Light Coconut Milk (you can use heavy, or substitute this with your favorite milk or cream)

1-2 Tsp Cinnamon

1/2 Tsp Ginger

1/2 Tsp Nutmeg

2 Tblsp Raw Almond Butter

1 Tsp Vanilla

2 Tblsp Raw Cashews (optional…I like adding a little crunch)

1 Cup Ice (or more if you want it thicker)

Sweetener of Choice (to taste)

Blend them all together and enjoy!
