Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

Oh heavenly orange squash that marks the first day of Fall, how I’ve missed your versatility.

Pumpkins are filled with complex carbohydrates, fiber, anti-oxidants, and vitamin A… but I’ve been avoiding them.

I blame it on end-of-summer-denial syndrome. Yes, it’s something many of us struggle with *tear*

But in an effort to keep up with the times, I’ve packed up the patio furniture, changed out my closet, and bought me some pumpkin.

Fall, I’m ready for you.

This week…

I’ve enjoyed my fair share of pumpkin pie quinoa breakfast bake (for dinner),

filled my afternoon with slivers of pumpkin raspberry buckwheat bakes,

and sipped on pumpkin spice smoothies while catching up on my emails in the morning.

Oh yessss….

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2 cups, 1 serving
This smoothie is creamy and light. Not only will it add extra fiber to your day, but having pumpkin in the morning will keep you fuller, longer!
  1. Place everything but whipped topping in the blender.
  2. Blend until smooth
  3. Pour into your favorite glass and place a couple tablespoons of coconut whipped cream on top.
  4. Sprinkle with cinnamon if you'd like!
Sweetness - this smoothie is not overly sweet. If you would like to sweeten, add maple syrup instead of the raisins. Or use sweetened non-dairy milk.

And, what’s your favorite pumpkin recipe?

I have 10 cans of pumpkin to get through and could really use your help. I’m such a sucker for a good sale.

  2. These are really good, I did take one reviewers advice and added one tablespoon of maple syrup plus I added one full frozen banana. Made this for my special needs son and he loved it as well

  3. I only have 2 cans of pumpkin puree, but I’ve been sitting on them since Thanksgiving so glad to find your blog

  4. Yum!!! Instead of raisins I added agave nectar, came out so good but had to add a tad bit more than a tablespoon. I just love sweet food!

  5. It took me awhile to wean myself off sugar in my fruit smoothies – first added sugar, then honey or maple syrup, then nothing but the sweetness of banana. Pumpkin is naturally sweet, too. Can’t wait to try a variation of this recipe. Thanks for the ideas!

  6. I made this with light almondmilk, but I think it would be better with light soy milk. I skipped the raisins and syrup and didn’t really miss the extra sweetness. Instead of using the individual spices, I used pumpkin pie spice.

  7. This sounds delicious. I am currently exploring different options to make sure I eat something in the morning. I am TERRIBLE at eating breakfast. I have noticed a huge difference in my day when I do put something into my body in the am. My question is (to anyone reading who wouldn’t mind advising me) can I replace the non-dairy milk with something like skim or low fat? Will it make it frothy? Sometimes milk does that in smoothies. Please don’t cringe at my question. I just love milk. I’ve tried and never have been a fan of the non-dairy options.

    • No cringing here! You bet, I’m sure you could add skim milk or low-fat milk to this smoothie. To be honest? I’ve never had a smoothie with milk, so I’m not sure what it does in smoothies…

  8. Like Rachel M, I found the link in the same article. This is a fantastic light dessert. I didn’t make the whipped cream, but honestly it is delicious without it. Thank you for the idea! I used Trader Joe’s Lite Coconut Milk as my non-dairy milk of choice!

  9. I found the link to this recipe in an article “31 weird but awesome recipes using pumpkin”. I’m so glad I found it!
    ITS DELICIOUS! I’m sipping on my soy pumpkin smoothie right now :)
    I’ve only had about 1/2 and I’m satisfied & full.
    Great way to start the day. I’ll be subscribing to your site. Excited to see what else you have for me to try!
