The Pumpkingingercoco Smoothie [Happy Holidays]

Tempeh Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sammies

Whoa, I know the name sounds like a MOUTHFULL! Well…it’s a mouth full of AWESOME! Seriously. It just doesn’t seem like the holidays if there isn’t some combination of pumpkin, gingerbread or coquito (a Puerto Rican version of egg nog just coconut cream/milk based-it’s delish, just don’t forget the rum). And in case you didn’t know this about me already, I’m a fan of holiday beverages (remember the vegan pumpkin spice latte recipe) just, I like to do it my way.

I figured I could combine all these flavors that I crave in one smoothie.

Bold and crazy, I know right?

Wrong.

It’s delicious. It’s great for breakfast, pre-workout, post-workout. Maybe you want this instead of eggnog and feel pretty badass that you had an awesome treat that’s super duper nourishing.

Mouth watering yet?
