Smoothies after dark? Yes, it’s a real thing! A little too sweet for breakfast and way healthier than the typical sugar-ladden dessert, enjoy this decadent smoothie in place of  ice cream. It’s meant to be eaten with a spoon and served in smaller portions.  So give everyone at the table a utensil to dig in or serve it up in mini martini glasses for a more elegant treat. Enjoy!


  • 6 ounces almond milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin purée
  • 3 large bananas, sliced and frozen
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder or raw cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tablespoon raw almond butter or raw cashew butter for extra creaminess
  • 4 pitted dates
  • Top with cinnamon and raw cacao nibs (or chocolate shavings)


Mix everything in a high-speed blender, add topping, then enjoy every luxurious bite!
