This pumpkin smoothie tastes seriously like a slice of Pumpkin Pie.
I want to enjoyed the taste of pumpkin pie spice without the calories. So, if you’re like me, then this Pumpkin Smoothie is going to be your new fall favorite drink.
The best part, is that we’ve made this Pumpkin Smoothie healthy. It does not with any of the excess calories, fat, sugars or guilt that comes with eating a big slice of pumpkin pie.
With the arrival of Pumpkin Season officially upon us, surely you must be in the mood for something “pumpkin-y”? Healthy smoothie recipes that are made with pumpkin are probably not what first comes to mind. Instead, I am guessing you probably are thinking more along the lines of rich, sweet and creamy pumpkin pie?
We love Pumpkin
have nothing at all against pumpkin pie (in fact, I have two different pumpkin pie recipes on our website here. My favorite is the Persimmon Pumpkin Pie with Coconut Crust and another one here for our Dairy-Free/ Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie).
How to Make our Pumpkin Smoothie
Instead of making your first “pumpkin-y” treat of the year a slice of pumpkin pie, why not try something super healthy that has zero added sugar, no dairy and just so happens to taste very much like liquid pumpkin pie.
The pumpkin smoothie recipe take just minutes to make and they are guaranteed to satisfy a pumpkin pie filling any time this season.
You’re going to add a few pieces of ice — but did you know that ice makes smoothies thick? So, if you want your Pumpkin Smoothie thicker, just toss in a few more ice cubes.
You’re going to add all of the ingredients into a high speed blender and blender on high. Pour and dust with a little cinnomon or pumpkin pie spice.
I also love adding a little big of frozen coconut whipped cream on top. Wow.Print
