A healthy pumpkin smoothie recipe

October is all about pumpkin recipes on Choosing Chia! We’ve got pumpkin lattes, pumpkin oatmeal, and now…a Pumpkin Pie Smoothie!

This recipe is easy to make, healthy and naturally vegan, gluten-free and refined sugar-free.

You can throw this smoothie together in just 5 minutes in the morning for a simple breakfast that really tastes just like your eating a decedent pumpkin pie.

What are the benefits of pumpkin?

Pumpkin is naturally high in vitamin A, vitamin C and is packed with antioxidants. Pumpkin is also very low in calories and sugar (about 49 calories per 245 grams!)

For this recipe, you can use either fresh pumpkin or canned pumpkin, the choice is up to you! (I personally use organic canned pumpkin to make things easier.)

Recipe additions and substitutions

There are so many different variations you can make to recipe.

  • For pumpkin substitutions, you can use sweet potato or butternut squash if you prefer.
  • If you don’t like bananas in your smoothies, you can use other fruits & veggies like apples, frozen cauliflower, mangos, avocado, or coconut.
  • You can also add-in ingredients like raw cashews, nut butter, maple syrup, chia seeds or hemp seeds to the smoothie to add some more protein.

Tips for making this recipe perfectly

  • Make sure to use pure canned pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling. These two aren’t the same (pumpkin pie filling is loaded with sugar and other ingredients, pumpkin puree should have only pumpkin on the list of ingredients)
  • Use FROZEN bananas, not fresh. Frozen bananas help the smoothie blend up to be thick and creamy.
  • You can add the yogurt directly to the smoothie rather than swirling it on the bottom if you prefer.
  • Adjust the amount of almond milk as needed-depending on the size of your bananas you may need slightly more or less almond milk to get the texture you like in a smoothie.
  • To make homemade pumpkin spice mix: 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 1/4tsp ginger, 1/8th tsp cloves.
