Vegan Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl

I have to admit I never really understood the point of a smoothie bowl. Then I thought, let me try one so I can understand it. I was shocked at how much I enjoyed it and it doesn't even need to be cold. So if it is about to be winter where you live, you can still enjoy a smoothie bowl during the cold winter months. It really is a nice way to have breakfast or even a treat. In my opinion, it's all in what you put on top of the smoothie bowl. I prefer something with crunch.

Some benefits of pumpkin:
Helps boost your immune system
Cancer fighting
Aids in weight loss
Great source of fiber and zinc
Lots of vitamin A and cartenoids
Can help prevent Alzheimers
Supports bone and heart health

Here is what you will need to get started. 
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 banana
1/2 cup oats
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp pumpkin spice
1/2 cup almond milk
6 pitted dates

Blend these all up until smooth and creamy. Pour into your favorite bowl and add some toppings you think you might like. I added some more banana, raw slivered almonds, raw hemp seeds and pumpkin seeds. You can also add some granola and dried fruit.
