Welcome fall with this delicious pumpkin pie smoothie, made quickly with simple ingredients that taste just like a pumpkin pie!
Fall is creeping up on us – hard to believe it’s already October! Here in Arizona, the temps sure don’t indicate that fall is anywhere close…
If anything, I’m jealous of all the folks in the Midwest that are enjoying truly cooler fall temps and a change of colors on their trees. My weather app shows that we might hit the the upper 90’s late next week (finally!)
If you enjoy fall weather, chances are you love everything pumpkin. I mean, who doesn’t love pumpkin?
- Pumpkin Bread…
- Instant Pot Pumpkin Cheesecake
- Pumpkin Chipotle Soup
- Even Pumpkin Cornbread Muffins
- Instant Pot Pumpkin Puree
- And my favorite… Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins
I’ve even pulled out the toilet paper rolls to make pumpkins to decorate the house. Am I out of control? I think I’m just ready for cooler weather!
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
No matter where I turn, my mind is fixated on pumpkin. This smoothie is super easy to make and the perfect treat when the weather cools down and you’re looking for something healthy.
Made with simple, healthy ingredients, it’s easily adaptable to suit your taste:
- My go-to is raw milk, but feel free to substitute coconut milk, almond milk or regular milk
- Feel free to add 1/4 tsp of cinnamon for deeper flavor
- Any Soy protein powder will work for this recipe – including Bone Broth Protein Powder (in vanilla flavor!)
All in all, this smoothie can be thrown together in mere minutes to make one large or two small smoothies.
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
- 1/2 C ice
- 1/3 C pumpkin puree
- 2 Tbsp EAS Soy protein powder vanilla
- 1 banana
- 1 Tbsp ground flax seed
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 C vanilla almond milk
- In a blender, add all ingredients, in the order listed above. Blend on high for 1-2 minutes, or until smooth. If needed, stop and stir, or scrape down the sides with a spoon or silicone spatula, and then blend again.
- If your smoothie is too thick, add additional almond milk. If it’s not quite thick enough, you can add additional ice cubes, and blend again.
- You can use frozen bananas instead of fresh, and omit the ice cubes in the recipe.
- If the smoothie is not as sweet as you desire, add honey or maple syrup to lightly sweeten.
- For added nutrition, you can add a handful of spinach to your smoothie.
