Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Fall has arrived and so have all the pumpkin flavored desserts, drinks, and foods of every kind. One of my favorite pumpkin treats is this pumpkin pie smoothie that I love to make once the weather gets cooler. Not only is this an incredible fall smoothie recipe, but it is so easy to make. When you’re craving pumpkin pie but you only have 10 minutes, this pumpkin pie smoothie recipe will swoop in and satisfy your pumpkin cravings.

Healthy Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Recipe

When fall rolls around, our house somehow turns into a never ending stream of candy, baked goods, and food galore. As delicious as it is, sometimes I need a little balance to avoid getting a serious food coma before thanksgiving. This is one reason why I love this pumpkin pie smoothie. The recipe can be as healthy or indulgent as you want with just a few easy swaps. Here are a few things that I do when I want to make my pumpkin pie smoothie on the healthier side.

  • I like to use Bluebell’s no sugar added vanilla ice cream. If Bluebell isn’t available in your area, the carb smart vanilla ice cream by Bryer’s is another option that is lower in calories and sugar.
  • Using unsweetened almond milk (or your milk of choice) is another way you can adjust this recipe to best meet your needs.
  • If you do use a no sugar added ice cream or milk option and want to increase the sweetness of your smoothie, you can use zero or low calorie sweeteners like splenda, sucralose sweet drops, etc.

A Pumpkin Pie Shake?

I like to call this a pumpkin pie smoothie recipe because the consistency is more like a smoothie in my opinion. However, if you add a little more ice cream, you would definitely have yourself an incredible pumpkin pie milkshake. After you’ve made the recipe once, you can make easy adjustments to your liking. If you want a thick pumpkin pie shake, add a little more ice cream and ice. You can also add a graham cracker or two to give your shake more texture.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie: FAQ’s

What kind of pumpkin purée should I use?

Any pumpkin purée will do! Some people swear by a certain brand of pumpkin purée, but in my opinion, any kind works great. I personally use Libby’s 100% pure pumpkin.

Pumpkin purée vs pumpkin pie filling?

Make sure you get pumpkin purée and NOT pumpkin pie filling. This will have a significant effect on how your smoothie turns out. Many people confuse the two, so be sure to read the label carefully. You will want to get pure pumpkin purée without any added spices, ingredients etc.
