Welcome to #AKPumpkinWeek day 4! I know that we’re in the middle of fall and the weather is starting to get chilly, but I’m a firm believer that smoothies should be enjoyed year round. They’re an excellent way to add nutritious fruits, veggies and protein into your diet.

Plus, when you can make a smoothie taste exactly like pumpkin pie, is there really anything more you can ask for?

Some of you may remember me posting a version of this recipe over on Instagram last month. You all went Tom Cruise crazy (TCC as I like to call it) for it, and so I immediately knew the recipe had to make a permanent appearance on the blog.

One of the reasons I love this recipe so much is because it’s the perfect way to use up leftover pumpkin puree after you’ve baked these healthy pumpkin cookies or this chocolate pumpkin bread that tastes like cake. Hehe.

What’s in this pumpkin smoothie?

This pumpkin smoothie is creamy, has the perfect consistency, is wonderfully spiced so it actually tastes like you’re enjoying a slice of pumpkin pie. Plus, it’s healthy! Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

  • pumpkin puree: if you’d like you can make your own using this tutorial.
  • plain or vanilla greek yogurt: I prefer whole milk for a boost of healthy fat.
  • frozen banana: this helps to sweeten the smoothie and create a creamy consistency
  • almond milk: feel free to use regular milk or coconut milk if you prefer.
  • almond butter or pecan butter: they provide a hint of nutty sweetness + healthy fats to keep you satisfied
  • vanilla extract: the one and only.
  • pumpkin pie spices: cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice (or you can sub pumpkin pie spice!)

Not only is this pumpkin smoothie super creamy, but there’s over 17g protein and 8g fiber per serving, making it a fabulous post-workout smoothie or afternoon snack to keep you fueled up.

Adding more nutrition to this pumpkin smoothie

There are several easy ways to boost the nutrition of this smoothie by adding any of the following ingredients:

Flaxseed meal: this is one of my favorite ingredients to add to smoothies for a little boost of fiber and minerals, and is especially great for nursing mamas as flaxseed can help increase milk supply. Usually a tablespoon is plenty! Here’s a brand I love.

Chia seeds: feel free to add in a tablespoon of chia seeds to your smoothie for a boost of healthy fats and fiber.

Hemp seeds: if you’ve been wondering what to do with those hemp seeds lurking in your cupboard, feel free to throw in a tablespoon into your smoothie for a boost of healthy fats, omegas and minerals.

Extra protein: add additional protein by using 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder. I recommend Vital Protein collagen peptides or Bob’s Red Mill Plant Based Vanilla Protein Powder.

I can’t wait to see you make this pumpkin pie smoothie! It could be one of my favorite smoothies EVER, but then again, I’m the one addicted to all things pumpkin. I suggest adding crunchy granola, or even graham cracker crumbles on top. Enjoy!
