Pumpkin Pie Smoothie [Recipe]
I don’t know about you, but when I think of Fall a Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte always springs to mind! For those of you who who can’t live without a bit of pumpkin spice in your life, try out this low carb pumpkin pie smoothie. It’s great for breakfast or a snack and super filling from all the fiber that’s in pumpkin.
For those in the Northern Hemisphere, October usually marks the start of autumn (“fall”) but living in Florida the change in season isn’t quite so obvious! My first indicator that Fall was here was seeing all the pumpkins lined up outside Whole Foods. Aren’t the colours, shapes and sizes just incredible!?
It’s been a long, hot, sticky summer so I can’t tell you how excited I was when I saw them. I knew that cooler weather would soon be with us. Until then, I’m gonna get my pumpkin spice latte fix with this refreshing smoothie instead. It’s the perfect healthy drink for the holidays!

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
- 0.75 cup Almond Milk - Vanilla - Unsweetened or unsweetened coconut milk
- 0.50 cup Pumpkin Puree
- 0.50 tsp pumpkin spice mix
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 60 grams banana (frozen)
- 0.25 cup Water optional
- 31 grams Vanilla Protein optional
- 1 tsp cinnamon, ground
- Throw everything in a blender and blend! Pretty simple huh?! To get a thicker consistency add some ice. Add water slowly to achieve desired consistency for your smoothie.
Blend it all together and enjoy your pumpkin spice breakfast without all the sugar and fat! I haven’t tried adding coffee to this but I bet it would be great with a shot of espresso for those who need their caffeine fix in the morning. ?
