Vegan Mofo Post # 12: Chocolaty Pumpkin & Cherry Smoothie

An in studio beverage before
The pumpkin love continue on with a cherry twist.
I wasn't sure how this would come out. Pumpkin and cherries aren't as well known a combination as pumpkin and cranberries-- that tight fit due mostly to their positions on holiday plates. I found a lovely recipe by Nonstop Awesomeness Nathan. I fought back tumultuous jealousy at his catchy blog name whilst imagining him picking fresh cherries from his front cherry tree or the gorgeous orange color that his efforts created....
Just kidding.
I love my smoothie too. I didn't have much pumpkin puree left and used an ample amount of frozen dark sweet cherries. 
One day, I'll have a cherry tree and a large garden and everything.  
Until then. I'm a stickler for frozen fruits and celebrating my birthday with pumpkin goodies.

Chocolaty Pumpkin & Cherry Smoothie Ingredients and Preparation

1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 1/2 cup frozen dark cherries
3 tablespoon cacao powder
2 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Blend all ingredients together. Drink merrily.

Circle of love.

The perfect reprieve is a good book and a tantalizing smoothie.


  1. That sounds lovely! This is the time of year when I wish I lived in a country where canned pumpkin puree was a thing!

    1. Oh no! No pumpkin puree where you are????
      And thank you. It was interesting tasting. <3
