Raw Pumpkin Pie Chai Smoothie
A refreshing, hearty smoothie that can be enjoyed as breakfast, lunch, snack, dessert or anytime. It is wonderful with ice on a warm day, or slightly warmed on low heat on the stove when it’s cool outside. Most of all, just try it!


1 avocado

1 cup of raw sweet potato, peeled and cubed

1 kilo of carrots

1/2 head cos/romaine lettuce

Stevia to taste

Chai spice (either buy premixed or use the following – 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp ginger, 1/8 tsp ground cardamom, 1/8 tsp allspice, pinch nutmeg, pinch cloves) 


Juice the carrots and lettuce. How much juice you get will depend on the size of your carrots and lettuce. Add more of each to get 1 litre/32oz. You want to use 3/4 carrot juice to 1/4 cos/romaine juice.

Place the cubed sweet potato, avocado flesh, spice and juice in a blender. Add 3 dropperfuls of liquid stevia and blend well. If you have a low speed blender you will need to blend for an extra minute or two to ensure the smoothie is smooth and creamy.

Taste the smoothie and adjust the stevia and spice to your liking. I like to add a full tray of ice cubes and blend until smooth and creamy again, but this is optional. Alternatively you can serve over ice, straight up or warmed slightly as suggested above.

Enjoy this fantastic drink, or grab a spoon and eat it as a soup.

Now it’s time to get into the kitchen and make this. Drool is encouraged!
