I admit it, I’m a sucker for fall.  The cooler weather, the leaves, the rain (that will hopefully bestow its presence upon us), and the flavors.  But, I refuse to believe we should settle for the pumpkin spice latte from you know where.  We can do better, people!  There’s actually no real pumpkin in there!  It’s just a lot of sugar, chemicals and some good, old fashioned “natural flavorings”…yummy, right?

So, here’s a healthy, fall-tastic smoothie that will make you want to curl up and enjoy the beauty of autumn.  Real food and spices – all from plants- no added sugar, and so, so divinely tasty!



Recipe by Jentry Lee Hull

Yields 2 servings


  • 2 cups plant milk
  • 1 cup banana, ripe and frozen in bite-sized chunks
  • ½ cup sweet potato puree (canned)
  • ½ cup pumpkin (canned)
  • 3 medjool dates, pits removed and soaked
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. rolled oats
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 Tbsp. nut butter


  • Ahead of time:
    • Prepare bananas. I like to buy a bunch of bananas just for freezing.  Once they’re ripe, peel and break into bite-sized chunks.  Store in an airtight container or plastic baggie in freezer.
    • Prepare dates. Tear in half, remove pits and soak in cold water for ~5min.
  • Smoothie time:
    • Place all items in a high-powered blender and blend until creamy and smooth. Adjust seasonings accordingly and serve immediately.  Enjoy!


Cheers to your health!
