Sometimes all you need is something warm to put your hands around. And right now, that something calls for some pumpkin spice and bananas.
With just 3 ingredients and a blender, you will have a mylkshake (without the milk) that will knock your thick socks off, taste like pumpkin pie heaven, and allow your eyes to roll in all the mmmmm-ness.
Fall is definitely upon us, and this comforting bevy will be the cherry on top of your cozy sweatpants, a good vegan documentary and those over-worn slippers from your amazing grandma … or is that just me?
With Thanksgiving (in Canada) done, it doesn’t mean the festivities can’t continue. Keep those pumpkin recipes coming, am I right?! Tis’ the season.
Bananas should enjoyed be in their ripe form (with spots). They’re amazing for digestion, high in potassium and rich in fibre.
Pumpkin Pie Spice contains cinnamon and ginger which both have great benefits for your bod. Ginger is a well-known immune-booster, and cinnamon is the king of lowering blood-sugar levels.
Vanilla (the pure extract) actually is anti-inflammatory, which helps you fight nasty diseases, and allows your body to function optimally.
