Smells Like Pumpkin Spirit

With autumn upon us, I've been working on a smoothie recipe that fits the season. This one incorporates a lot of healthy, delicious and super nourishing ingredients into this raw power refresher. It is really great if you are a raw vegan and trying to keep your B vitamin intake up (especially B12 and folic acid). Check this out:


milk and meat of 1 baby coconut
1 frozen banana
1/4 cup chia seeds, soaked with one cup fresh almond milk
1/4 cup (or more) fresh carrot juice
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (add more if you prefer)
2 - 3 soaked dates
1 scoop maca powder
1 tsp. liquid vitamin B complex
1 heaping tbsp. Crystal Manna Flakes (optional)
large glass of crushed ice

Place all ingredients into your high speed blender and mix until smooth and frothy. This drink isn't only incredibly healthy and delicious, it is guaranteed to keep you rocking and fueled up for hours!


  1. Penni, you my friend, are a genius! I made the smoothie today and substituted the carrot juice with 5 fresh organic carrots, stevia for dates and skipped the b complex and manna flakes as it is 4:30 in the evening and that might keep my up all night. I didn't have almond milk so I threw in 12 soaked almonds and chia seeds in my coconut water/meat. This is amazing...perfect for fall!
