Fall is Here and that means Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING!

We're sooo ready for fall and with the cooler temps and changing leaves come pumpkin spice...everything! While you may find yourself drawn to the PSL at Starbucks, we touched base with Yoga Wake Up teacher and raw food chef Sophie Jaffe instead, because she has a way of creating delicious, easy-to-make, healthy alternatives to the most popular less-healthy snacks. Read on for Sophie's take on the hot fall food trend!

Philosophie's Pumpkin Spice Smoothie Recipe

Who else has noticed that the PSL is out early this year and Trader Joe’s now has pumpkin spice EVERYTHANG! We’ve got something just as good, if not better, over here at Philosophie HQ. This pumpkin spice smoothie is the ultimate fall goals. It’s tastes like leaves changing, chunky sweaters, and the crispness of the air all in a drinkable beverage. It’s so good.

If you’re in the mood for something sweet, but don’t want to indulge or fully dive in the sweets then I highly recommend this fall smoothie. In addition to our nourishing + fueling Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend, Green Bee Honey and Coconut Dream Coconut Butter, this beaut was made with one of my favorite fall fruits - pluots! Pluots are a magical seasonal fruit that is the mix of a plum and an apricot.

This smoothie can also be subbed with persimmons for the pluots if your feeling those instead! I have an insane sweet tooth and if smoothies like these that are seriously satisfying, but also full of delicious nutrients.

Happy fall!

Gather This:

1 C almond milk

1 frozen banana

2 pluots or persimmons

1 tbsp Green Bee Honey

1 tbsp Coconut Dream Coconut Butter

2 tbsp Berry Bliss Superfood + Protein Blend

1 tbsp almond butter

1/2 C organic pumpkin puree

1 tbsp cinnamon

1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice

Do This:

Mix all ingredients in a high-speed blender. Top with pecans and granola (optional). Cut open and scoop out the contents of a pumpkin to use it as your cup for an extra fall flavor and fun!
