Pumpkin Spice Smoothie Bowl



Plant-Based, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free



The only thing better than a pumpkin spice latte is a rich pumpkin smoothie bowl. It's lower in sugar but high in flavor. This smoothie bowl is like eating a pumpkin pie for breakfast but you'll actually feel healthy afterwords! It is full of fiber, protein, vitamins, and healthy fats. Coconut yogurt gives it a creamy lightness, and toasted pecans give it a satisfying crunch.
