The leaves changing from green to hues of yellow and burnt orange. Warm scents of vanilla, cinnamon, cider and pumpkin spice everything…fall is officially here!
I love my greens but there’s nothing like the comfort of something warm and sweet on a cool autumn day. So rather than heading for my greens I decided to pear (pun intended) some of my fall favorites together for a delicious and nutritious vegan breakfast smoothie. This combo will have you feeling warm and cozy in no time!
What you’ll need:
1 large Bosc pear seeded and chopped
1/2 cup almond milk (I prefer homemade but store bought is fine also)
1/4 cup rolled oats (gluten free)
1/2 tablespoon maple agave syrup
1 tablespoons almond butter
1/2 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
Pinch of vanilla extract, cinnamon and nutmeg. Use 1/4 cup of vanilla yogurt rather than vanilla extract for a non-vegan option.
Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Blend thoroughly, pour into a glass and sprinkle with cinnamon. I use a Vitamix blender because it purées very well.
I was pretty full after drinking this smoothie. Rolled oats have plenty of fiber to keep your tummy satasfied until snack/lunch time. You can pair with a banana on the side or a slice whole grain toast for additional nutrition. This smoothie is the perfect guilt-free treat for those with a major sweet tooth like myself.
Stay tuned for more of my fall smoothie favorites!
Let’s stay connected!
