This scrumptious vegan, gluten free, dairy free, soy free, egg free smoothie really does taste like a delectable “maple pecan pie in a glass”. Those of you with nut allergies, my profound apologies. There is just no nutty equivalent! In the spirit of replicating the perfect bite of snout-worthy pecan pie I only used 2 tablespoons of maple syrup to keep the sugar content down. I found this was just enough to bring out the natural sweetness in the bananas and take the edge off the pecans. But feel free to sweeten the deal. The pecan milk adds that hint of a nutty pastry flavour, and the cinnamon and vanilla perfect the blend. This vegan dairy free smoothie does every creamy bite of my mum’s pecan pie justice, and hits the “B spot” on those days when you are not inclined to bake. This pecan smoothie is absolutely scrumptious. It is like a refreshing Summer chilled dessert in a glass. This is rich! But, I don’t think I will be needing to eat humble pie. I am going to proclaim that this is one of the blender recipes out there! YUMMO!
