It may be officially Fall but I love smoothies all year round. Plus, I believe you can never have enough pumpkin. I did a lot of recipe testing for this bad boy because I wanted to get it just right. And I promise it’s worth the wait.
Enter the pumpkin pie smoothie.
I find people either love or hate pumpkin. I happen to love it. And I wanted to create a smoothie that wasn’t loaded with sugar so that I could enjoy it for breakfast. (See why here.) Because let’s save the actual pie for dessert, shall we?

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
I’ve added a few notes below the recipe so you can adjust this smoothie to your taste. I know that I prefer my smoothies to be less sweet but in case you want yours a bit sweeter, read the notes in the recipe. This one can definitely be adjusted to fit your preferences!
If I were you, I’d try the recipe as is to start and then add in some of the options if you find you’d like a bit more sweetness.

- 1 handful frozen greens
- 1/4 cup pumpkin purée
- 1/4 cup frozen zucchini
- 1/2 cup frozen cauliflower rice
- 1 T. flaxseed
- 1 T. almond butter
- 1 scoop Vital Proteins Vanilla and Coconut Water Collagen
- 1/2 t. vanilla extract
- 1/4 t. pumpkin pie spice
- cinnamon and more pumpkin pie spice, as needed
- 1/4 cup frozen yellow squash* (See notes) OR
- 1/4 cup frozen banana OR
- 1/4 cup frozen figs
- Add dairy-free milk and the frozen greens to blender. Blend until smooth.

- I used frozen yellow squash in this recipe. You could use 1/4 cup frozen banana or 1/4 cup frozen figs in place of the yellow squash if you want a sweeter smoothie.
- Also feel free to add cinnamon or more pumpkin pie spice if you desire.
- Once the can of pumpkin purée is open, freeze the leftover purée in a silicon ice cube tray for future smoothies!
