Smoothies for the Fall Season

A smoothie can be great for a morning pick-me-up, after a workout, or just in general. As fall approaches, why not learn how to make some delicious seasonal smoothies to add a crisper taste to your day-to-day activities? After reading these recipes, we’re sure you’ll have at least one craving.

Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie:

There’s something inherently autumn-esque about oatmeal cookies. To support this theory, here’s a delicious smoothie that champions this key ingredient. For your oatmeal cookie smoothie, you’ll need:

1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tablespoons of agave nectar

2 tablespoons of flax meal

⅓ cup of oats

¼  teaspoon of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of chia seeds

½ teaspoon of vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon of kosher salt

1 frozen banana (peeled and chopped)

1 ½ cups vanilla almond milk

Blend in a blender until all of the ingredients are liquefied, and add more vanilla almond milk if you want a thinner consistency. This recipe is courtesy of TheKitchyKitchen! Cookie-flavored and yet still pretty healthy – a true win-win.

Berry and Apple Cider Smoothie:

Nothing says fall like apple cider. Whether you’re a fan or not, this recipe is so easy that you may just want to try it anyway. You’ll need:

1 cup of mixed, frozen berries

1-1 ¼ cup of apple cider

Honey or agave syrup for sweetening

That’s all! Next, you’ll need to blend the berries and apple cider and add more juice if the mix seems too thick. Add your honey or agave syrup to sweeten as you see fit. Thanks to The Clever Carrot for sharing this recipe! Check out pictures of the rich-looking final product here.

Vegan Pumpkin Pie Smoothie:

I couldn’t truly call this a fall smoothie compilation without including pumpkin pie somewhere, so here you have it! As a bonus, this recipe is also gluten-free and vegan. To make this smoothie and to cap off your fall smoothie tasting extravaganza, you’ll need:

1 cup of coconut milk (in the carton, not the can)

About ¾ cup of canned or pureed pumpkin

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 tablespoon of agave nectar

1 tablespoon of chia seeds

¼ cup of unsweetened flaked coconut

¼ cup of pecans

2 frozen bananas (peeled and cut into thirds)

1 cup of ice cubes

In that order, add all of the ingredients into your blender and mix until you’re left with a smooth consistency. Add the coconut flakes, pecans, and cinnamon as garnish. Thank you to 86 Lemons for this great recipe!

With that, you now have three truly delicious, fall-themed smoothies for your DIY tasting pleasure. I wish I could make this font orange in order to solidify the autumn-overload. Enjoy your smoothies, and the season!
