Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Recipe


 “Hello, my name is Becky and I am a pumpkin addict.”  

Yes, I confess.  It is one of my favorite foods and fall is my favorite time of year.  If you begin following my blog on a regular basis you will find an abundance of pumpkin recipes here, eventually.  This tasty winter squash is so amazing and packed with nutrients I am afraid that I don’t think I can learn to live without it.

If I were stranded on a desert island, I would have to take pumpkin seeds with me and make sure that I could plant them and grow more.  Have I confessed enough of my love from this glorious rooted food?

When pumpkin time begins to roll around every year I really just can’t wait to get my oven fired up to make breads, cookies and cakes.  Yup, all those.  I don’t just stop at the pumpkin bread, or smoothie for that matter.  I must have it all.

I’m in the process of moving some recipes over from my old and not very “blogged” blog.  This particular pumpkin recipe has been a favorite there.  Last year, after my daughter was born, I was missing blogging something bad and started with another blog and later realized I didn’t really have the time to invest. I posted this recipe shortly after I purchased my Vitamix 5200. (referral link.) This recipe really is to die for. When you have a pumpkin craving it is a good way to get a quick fix.   And, honestly my Vitamix 5200  is one of my best purchases ever. I don’t know why I didn’t get one sooner. (I might want to take that to the desert island too.)

Make sure you keep this one handy.  I might just go make me one right now.  Just opened a can of pumpkin yesterday.

Go ahead try it out if you dare.  Watch out you might get addicted, make sure you have plenty of pumpkin puree on hand.


  1. I made the recipe as-is and thought it was overall pretty good, but I would make a few changes according to my smoothie preferences. First off, I want to mention that this recipe makes enough for 2 servings, something I didn’t think about the first time I made it. Also, I thought it would be helpful to mention that peeling and chopping a banana prior to freezing is helpful. I use fresh pumpkin puree that doesn’t come from a can so it’s a little more runny which gives reason to use yogurt in place of milk so the smoothie is thick. Surprisingly I didn’t like the chocolate flavor and texture which is surprising since I love chocolate.
