It’s like healthy pumpkin pie, in smoothie form! This pumpkin smoothie recipe tastes like you’re enjoying the real thing for breakfast. It’s vegan, gluten-free and packed with lots of good stuff to fuel your day.
Fall calls for all things pumpkin. Pumpkin muffins, pumpkin spice lattes, and yup, even pumpkin pie smoothies. While it may sound a little out there, once you taste this delicious pumpkin smoothie recipe you’ll be hooked.
Now I may be exaggerating a little when I say this pumpkin smoothie tastes just like pumpkin pie. We know that nothing could ever replace the real deal. However, this recipe is pretty dang close.
What’s in the smoothie:
Pumpkin puree, of course. NOT pumpkin pie filling, you don’t want to mix this up!
Frozen banana, which adds sweetness and thick, creaminess to the smoothie texture.
Vanilla protein powder to make the smoothie more satisfying and keep you fuller longer. It will also add nice flavour. To make the recipe vegan, use a plant-based protein powder!
Pumpkin pie spice, duh.
Pure maple syrup to add a little more sweetness. Feel free to omit this or use less/more if you like.
Non-dairy milk of your liking. You can use whatever you have on hand, but to make it plant-based I used a non-dairy milk alternative.
Why you’ll love this pumpkin smoothie recipe:
It makes a quick and easy breakfast. Throw all the ingredients in the blender and blend! 5 minute breakfast.
It’s a great way to use up leftover pumpkin puree. I always find I have extra in my fridge after baking, so this is a great way to put it to use!
It really is delicious. If you love all things pumpkin, you’re gonna love this one!
