This juicer presents two fresh assumptions of the taste of autumn. First up to Pressed is their fan favorite Pumpkin Freeze, a soft serving-like treat made up of seven simple ingredients. You can garnish it with any topping you want, including vegan marshmallows! Honey and chocolate rain are the only non-vegan toppings. The other pumpkin product at Pressed this year is a brand new Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl dressed in bananas, granola, pecan praline pieces and granola butter.
