This pumpkin pie smoothie is thick, creamy, and perfect for dessert! It tastes like pumpkin pie while being completely dairy-free and gluten-free.
Scroll down to the recipe box for quantities.
Here is what you will need for this recipe:
Pumpkin puree – Make sure you are using canned pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling.
Oat milk or almond milk
Frozen banana – MUST be frozen to create a nice creamy texture.
Maple syrup – For added sweetness.
Pumpkin pie spice – To create that pumpkin pie flavor!
Almond butter – You could also use peanut butter.
How to make
If you don’t already have a frozen banana, you will have to freeze it. It will take several hours for it to be completely frozen.
Then all you need to do is add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
This smoothie is nice and thick, but if you find it too thick or have trouble getting it blended, add a bit more milk of choice.
- Freeze your banana in pieces: It’s best to peel your banana, then cut it into 3 or 4 pieces before freezing it. If you make a lot of smoothies, I recommend keeping a bunch of frozen banana stocked in your freezer. Just layer them in a sealed container, and put parchment paper between each layer to prevent the bananas from sticking together.
- Use 100% pure pumpkin: Use canned pumpkin puree, not canned pumpkin pie filling. Check the ingredients on the can and make sure it only contains pumpkin.
- Add more milk to this pumpkin pie smoothie if you find it too thick or if your blender isn’t powerful enough to blend it.
Substitutions and adjustments
- Instead of almond butter, you can use peanut butter. The almond butter tastes a bit more neutral, but if you love the taste of peanut butter, go ahead and add some peanut butter!
- For the milk, I like using almond milk or oat milk. Both of these plant-based milks taste fairly neutral in this smoothie and they create a nice creamy texture. You could try a different milk, but I recommend using something that doesn’t have a super strong taste so that you don’t alter the taste of the smoothie.
- You can add more maple syrup if you want this pumpkin pie smoothie to be even sweeter.
