Recipe Collection: Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Written by Amber

I can hardly believe that summer has passed and school is already starting for most of the country. The weather is starting to turn, and as I took a walk this evening, I grabbed a sweatshirt to take off some of the chill.

Saying goodbye to swimming pools and late sunsets always brings me nostalgia because one more summer is in the books. But when I think ahead to one of my favorite fall treats, I get excited and forget about the beach!

It’s time to shift gears because, ready or not…here comes fall!!!

And nothing says fall like the comforting taste of pumpkin spice!

Once September hits, the leaves change color, and pumpkin spice is suddenly everywhere.

Pumpkin spice coffee, pumpkin spice ice cream, pumpkin spice cookies. I’m surprised they don’t make pumpkin spice toothpaste! Pumpkin is just synonymous with fall.

Unfortunately, most of the mainstream offerings of this fall favorite are full of artificial flavors and all sorts of yuckiness. Ditch the questionable ingredients and whip up this healthy, delicious option at home instead.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie – Oh So Yummy!

My family loves anything pumpkin, so one day, I decided to try and make a pumpkin pie smoothie because the only thing better than eating pumpkin pie is drinking it! A straw straight to my mouth, connecting the pumpkin to my belly! YUMMY! My mouth waters just thinking about it!

Hint: If you have a garden, scoop up as many pumpkins as you can now. Cook them up in your pressure cooker and store them in your freezer because you will want them all winter long, so you can enjoy my yummy pumpkin pie smoothie anytime you feel the ‘comfort food’ mood strike! And if you don’t have a garden, look for pumpkins at farmer’s markets or even your local supermarket. I have found that the jack-o-lantern pumpkins are as good as the pie pumpkins and are usually much cheaper for MUCH more pumpkin!

My family has a lot of allergies, so I created a non-dairy version of the pumpkin pie smoothie, but you could easily make it with dairy milk as well.

What’s better than pumpkin pie? Pumpkin pie for breakfast!! Indulge in it guilt-free, and know you are getting the added benefits of fiber and lots of beta-carotene from the pumpkin! How cool is that! Now you can have your pie and eat it too! 😉

I also love to serve my pumpkin pie smoothie as a mid afternoon treat to my kids. You know kids are always hungry! And I feel good serving them a healthy treat (and let me tell you, it definitely disguises well!)

My kids are always standing by the blender, hoping for seconds! Yours will enjoy it too, I’m sure!

What You’ll Need

Any good smoothie starts with a good milk base. As mentioned earlier, my family has dairy allergies, so I use non-dairy milk. You could easily use any milk that your family likes. Smoothies are a great way to add calcium and vitamin D to your kids’ diet in a fun and delicious way that they won’t even catch on to! 😉

Next, you need good-quality pumpkins. I recommend using fresh pumpkins that you have previously frozen or finding some in the frozen food section at your local supermarket. If you can’t get either of those, use a simple can of pumpkin. Just make sure it’s not pumpkin pie filling because that is packed with added sugar.

Peanut butter is the secret ingredient that adds a hint of depth to your smoothie. It will make your smoothie feel rich and full-bodied. I like to use all-natural peanut butter with no sugar added, but that is entirely up to you!

Of course, you can’t have pumpkin pie without pumpkin pie spice. If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, check out our Pumpkin Spice Seasoning!

You will need something to sweeten your smoothie, and I highly recommend the goodness of stevia. You could also use honey or dates, but I suggest avoiding using actual sugar. Check out our blog, Six Natural Sugar Alternatives, for more ideas.

And finally, you need ice. Ice just makes the smoothie a smoothie! It adds texture, volume, and, of course, temperature to make your smoothie taste delicious!
