Today’s post – sponsored by *Silk® – brings you these utterly scrumptious and mega-clean pumpkin donuts.

What I love about these is not only the moist, sweet taste of the donuts but the deliciously creamy glazed toppings, all of which look so colorful and bright, it’s hard to believe that they are made from all-natural ingredients and colorings – such as beetroot and matcha.

By adding Silk® Almond Creamer to the mix, you’re left with a creamier, sweeter glaze.

With #SilkCreamer, you really are rest assured that the ingredients are gluten and dairy free, as well as Paleo and vegan-friendly.

Just check out the list of ingredients which make up the Sweet and Creamy Almond Creamer used in the recipe.

After a longer than expected break, this post really was a welcome return.
