Pumpkin pie smoothies are delicious and nutritious. Additionally, these smoothies are super easy to make, so you can have them anytime. Although they’re traditionally a holiday drink, you can enjoy them all year long.
Delicious Homemade Smoothies
You don’t have to wait until pumpkins are in season, since this recipe uses canned pumpkin.
You also don’t need to wait for your favorite coffee shop to announce that the pumpkin flavor is now available.
All you need to do is get these readily available ingredients and whip one up. You’ll be amazed by how wonderful and easy it is!
The pumpkin pie spice enhances the flavor of this delicious drink. It’s perfect for those times when you don’t want to heat up your whole house with a pie in the oven.
Of course, it can’t take the place of a slice of pumpkin pie after your holiday meal. But it can come pretty close.
However, if you want a quick afternoon pick-me-up, it’s the quickest and easiest way to get your pumpkin fix.
Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Variations
The recipe I’m showing here can be switched up by using a different type of milk.
You can also use heavy cream if you’re not concerned about fat content or calories. Another thing you can do is use sugar instead of syrup or honey.
I almost always have bananas. However, when I don’t, I might use an avocado to provide the smooth texture.
Not only do avocados and bananas provide a smoother drink, but also they add quite a bit of nutritional value to the drink.
This pumpkin pie smoothie recipe is extremely versatile, consequently allowing you to make it how you like it. Don’t be afraid to experiment. After you blend it, take a taste, and adjust if needed.
Keep these things in mind when you make pumpkin pie smoothies:
- They can be served hot or cold, depending on the weather and your preference.
- If you need a little pick-me-up, add a splash of coffee or your favorite tea. Green tea is good.
- Always have a can of pumpkin on hand. After you open it, the pumpkin can be refrigerated and used for several days.
- You can also add some protein powder and have this nutritious smoothie for breakfast.
Cold vs. Warm Pumpkin Pie Smoothies
During the spring and fall, I prefer pumpkin pie smoothie drink cold but not frozen. In contrast, during the summertime when it’s blazing hot out, I like it frozen.
If you want a warm drink, you can forgo freezing the banana and stick the drink in the microwave to heat it up. That would be good with some whipped cream on top.
How to Make Pumpkin Pie Smoothies
You only need 6 ingredients to make a pumpkin pie flavored smoothie the way I like it.
I use pumpkin puree, milk, banana, maple syrup, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice.
However, you can change things up to make them the way you like them.
For exact measurements of each ingredient and full directions, go to the recipe card at the bottom of the page. You can even print out the card by using the “print” button.
Measure all of the ingredients, put them in the blender, and turn it on.
Run it until it is creamy and super smooth.
This can make one humongous drink, or you can have a couple of pumpkin pie smoothies.
After all, it’s even better when you can share the deliciousness with someone you like.
Just be prepared for that person to request another one soon.
You can top your smoothie with whatever you want, such as my favorite—a dash or two of cinnamon.
Another favorite topping is whipped cream. You can add even more cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice on top if you like.
