5 Delicious Pumpkin Pie Smoothies You’ll Absolutely Love!

Nothing beats the smooth creamy filling, crispy crust and memories of cozy family gatherings.

How about starting the day with all that goodness, in under 5 minutes and with the super-healthy version?

Count me in!

Pumpkin Pie Smoothies are among my absolute favorites, and seems there are many ways to prepare them - some are quick & easy (the ones I like!) and some more elaborate.

They are perfect for breakfast, even when you’re on the go. If you want to make a pumpkin pie smoothie in less than 5 minutes, check out my how to freeze guide here.​

So, what should you put in a pumpkin pie smoothie to make it so delicious?

Pumpkin puree of course! Other popular ingredients are banana, yogurt, coconut milk and cinnamon.

Almost all recipes include pumpkin pie spice, but I’ve discovered the recipes would also work great with a pinch of ground ginger as substitute.

I’m sure you’ll absolutely love any of these recipes, so be sure to try one today, and also share it with your friends & family using the buttons below:​

 

 

Classic Morning Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Classic Morning Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Recipe and image via Shugary Sweets

Serves: 1 Large Smoothie
Total Time: 5 Minutes

This smoothie doesn't really taste like a pie, but boy - what a way to start the morning!

It is really one of the best smoothies I’ve had for a long time.

As I always strive to be out of "sweet tooth" mode, I eliminate the Agave from this recipe, and happy enough with the sweetness from the banana and yogurt.

You can also drink it after workout and enjoy a delicious, protein-rich and healthy recovery.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree
  • 1 large banana
  • 6-8 ice cubes
  • 6 oz vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp agave nectar (or honey would work too)**
  • 3 Tbsp milk
  • pinch nutmeg and whipped cream, optional garnish

Instructions

  1. In a blender combine pumpkin, banana, ice, yogurt, spice, agave nectar and milk*. Pulse until smooth!
  2. Pour into a glass and top with whipped cream and pinch of nutmeg. ENJOY!

Recipe Notes:

* If desired, add a scoop of vanilla protein powder before blending.

​** I personally don't include agave or honey in this recipe, However if you're looking for a sweet treat but cut down on sugar, add a few drops of liquid stevia

The Family Friendly Version

Serves: 2 Smoothies

This one works great for kids as well as adults - love the creaminess of the almond butter and the sweetness coming from the dates and banana.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2/3 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 2 dried Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, store-bought or homemade
  • Coconut whipped cream and extra pumpkin pie spice, to garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add the pumpkin, coconut milk, almond butter, banana, dates, and spices to a blender and process on high until smooth.
  2. Divide between two glasses and top with coconut whipped cream and a dusting of pumpkin pie spice, if desired.

Recipe Notes:

You can replace the coconut milk with cow's or nut milk. It won't be quite as thick but is still delicious.

Cinnamon Delight

Serves: 2 Smoothies

This Pumpkin Pie Smoothie features cinnamon, vanilla and clove, giving it a unique and captivating taste.

The cinnamon is an awesome healthy addition, as it's known to control blood sugar, help with colds, as well as increase energy, vitality, and blood circulation.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup (6 ounces) canned coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) water
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 of one banana
  • 1 teaspoon real maple syrup (optional)
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla (or more to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (or more to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Pinch of clove
  • 2 scoops protein powder of choice (18-25 grams of protein)

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in blender and puree until smooth.

Recipe Notes:

You can up the spices and vanilla in this smoothie for your personal taste. If you buy coconut milk stabilized with guar gum, it will be thicker and creamier than a brand without guar gum. Guar gum is only an issue for people with digestive issues. If you are sensitive to gums, choose a brand without guar gum.

The Perfect Pumpkin Pie Dessert Smoothie

Serves: 2 Smoothies
Total Time: 15 Minutes

This delicious smoothie almost tastes like a dessert instead of a nutritious breakfast. It’s healthy and doesn’t include added sugar, although it is sweet enough as is.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin, frozen
  • 1 medium banana, frozen
  • ½ cup vanilla greek yogurt
  • 1 cup or more coconut milk (or almond milk)
  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup (more to taste)
  • water if needed for desired consistency

Instructions

  1. Place ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add water until you get the desired consistency.

Recipe Notes:

These can be made into smoothie freezer kits. Put all ingredients except almond milk and vanilla extract into a freezer bag and put into freezer. Take out the night before you want to make and add to blender with almond milk and extract.

Protein-Rich Pumpkin Pie Taste-Alike

Protein-Rich Pumpkin Pie Taste-Alike

Recipe and image via Sally's Baking Addiction

Serves: 2 Smoothies or 1 Monster Size Smoothie
Total Time: 5 Minutes

This is a delicious pumpkin pie taste-alike, but with 12g protein per serving and without all the calories, refined sugar and fat!

What I like about it, apart from the heavenly taste - it is weight loss friendly and keeps you feeling full for hours. 

Ingredients

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup (120g) vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 11/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 21/2 cup (120ml) skim milk
  • 32 Tablespoons (30ml) pure maple syrup
  • 2/3 cup (150g) pumpkin puree (canned or fresh)
  • 1 cup ice

Instructions

  1. Make sure you have a strong, powerful blender. I like this Ninja or this Vitamix.
  2. Add all of the ingredients to the blender in the order listed. Blend on high for at least 3 minutes or until smooth - this may take longer if your blender isn't very strong. Scrape down the sides of the blender as needed.
  3. Add more milk to thin out if it is too thick. Add a couple more ice cubes for a thicker texture, if desired. Add more spices to taste, if desired.

Recipe Notes:

Feel free to use regular (non Greek) vanilla or plain yogurt instead - keeping in mind the protein count will be lower. I prefer vanilla Greek yogurt not only for its protein count, but for its incredibly thick texture and vanilla taste.

​Instead of pumpkin pie spice, try adding nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and/or more cinnamon to taste.

​Any milk is just fine here. However, be sure to adjust the protein count accordingly if protein count is a concern.

Hope you like these recipes - they’re all amazingly delicious, easy to make and will bring up the heavenly tastes of a Pumpkin Pie even on a busy morning.

To make these Pumpkin Pie Smoothies in less than 5 minutes, what I do is freeze ahead a number of small bags with all the ingredients inside.

Then every morning I just toss the bag contents into my blender and the smoothie is ready!
