“Fall” In Love With These 4 Plant-Based Smoothies

Feeling a bit brisk outside? You can quickly get into the feel of fall with a spiced smoothie or one that uses our favorite autumn flavors, like apples and pumpkin. Dive in with a few recipes we’ve cultivated from our high-quality ingredients and a little imagination:

Smoothie #1: Pumpkin Pie

Yum! This recipe is filling and full of goodness, from the spices to the healthy pumpkin, plus our own 22 Days Protein powder to really hit the spot.

  • 1-1.5 cups plant-based milk (almond, cashew, hemp, etc.)
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 scoop 22 Days Nutrition Vanilla Plant Protein Powder
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or 1-2 dates
  • 2/3 cup canned pumpkin, unsweetened
  • 2 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix (see below)
  • Dash of salt
  • Ice cubes (about 1 cup)

If you don’t have pre-mixed pumpkin pie spice on hand, make your own! Combine 4 tsp ground cinnamon, 2 tsp ground ginger, 1 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg, 1 tsp ground allspice and ½ tsp ground cloves (more if you really like cloves). Store in an airtight container and use as needed!

Smoothie # 2: Pear Ginger Smoothie

Fall is a perfect time to find local pears at Farmer’s markets and local grocery stores. Plus, they’re tasty! Adapted from Drink Me Healthy.

  • 2 pears, chopped
  • 1 small piece ginger, peeled
  • 1 scoop 22 Days Nutrition Vanilla Plant Protein Powder
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 cup plant-based milk

Tip: If the mixture seems a bit thick, add ½ cup of water and blend until mixed. This combination can also be blended in a high-speed blender until warm for a delightful warming drink.

Smoothie #3: Dark Chocolate Cherry Chai

Chocolate and chai? Count us in! Adapted from How Sweet it is.

  • 2 cups frozen, pitted dark cherries
  • 1 cup plant-based coconut yogurt
  • 1 scoop 22 Days Nutrition Chocolate Plant Protein Powder
  • ½ cup non-dairy milk, or water
  • 1.5 tablespoons cocoa or raw cacao
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 teaspoon chai spice mixture
  • 1 cup ice

For chai spice, combine 1 tbsp ginger, ½ tbsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp ground cardamom, cloves, and allspice. In a pinch, use our pumpkin pie spice above and add ½ tsp more ginger per smoothie.

Smoothie #4: Apple Pie

Decadent! And, with just a few simple ingredients, it’s super easy to blend up.

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • Handful cashews
  • Handful pecans
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 dates (optional)
  • 1 scoop 22 Days Nutrition Vanilla Plant Protein Powder
  • 1 cup vegan milk
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Nutmeg, to taste

You can easily reduce the milk by half or more to turn this into a beautiful smoothie bowl, like we did in the video below. Top with apple slices, nuts and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Delicious!

Now that you have some new Autumn-inspired smoothies to try, you’ll relish the cooler weather and the changing of the leaves. Enjoy!
