Why make this smoothie??
- It’s ready in just 5 minutes!
- Full of Fall flavors and is ultra-creamy
- Only 8 ingredients
- Easy to make dairy-free or vegan if needed
- Filling and protein-packed
- And oh…did I mention, tastes like pumpkin pie!!
8 simple ingredients is all you need for this nutritious smoothie!
- Pumpkin Puree: Be sure to use 100% canned pumpkin, and not the pumpkin pie mix. Pumpkin is a good source of vitamin A and vitamin C!
- Frozen Ripe Banana: helps to sweeten the smoothie, make it creamy and a great way add flavor and volume.
- Greek yogurt: We love to use a plain, full fat Greek yogurt. Makes it creamy and adds in a boost of protein. Feel free to use a dairy-free yogurt if needed.
- Orange juice: Orange and pumpkin are two orange foods that work really well together! The citrus brightens the pumpkins earthiness and enhance its sweetness.
- Evaporated Milk: We love the flavor evaporated milk gives this smoothie, but feel free to use almond milk, coconut milk, regular cows milk, or any milk you prefer.
- Cinnamon and Pumpkin Pie Spice: essential to bring out the pumpkin pie flavor!
- Honey: a touch of honey to add some sweetness (optional)
Step by Step Directions
Smoothie making couldn’t be easier and this recipe will keep you energized and full all morning long.
- Place all ingredients in a blender
- Blend until smooth.
- Taste and adjust ingredients if needed to make thicker or thinner.
- Pour into a glass, and garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon or pecans.
Smoothie tip: smoothies need a perfect blend of liquid and solid ingredients to achieve the right texture. I like a thick smoothie! If you prefer a thinner consistency, add more milk.
Tips and variations
- Add in nutritional boosters like ground flaxseed, chia seeds, hemp seeds or a scoop of your favorite protein powder!
- Add in veggies if you’d like: a handful of spinach or frozen cauliflower would be perfect additions.
- Adjust your smoothie: add more liquid if you prefer it more on the thinner side or add more frozen bananas to thicken it up!
- Taste and adjust: add more honey or maple syrup if you feel like it needs to be sweeter.
- Use frozen ripe bananas: using frozen ripe bananas will help give the smoothie the perfect amount of natural sweetness.
