This dreamy and creamy Healthy Pumpkin Pie Smoothie is the perfect fall treat.

Hi everyone!

Has anyone else had the frozen PSL this year?  I talked about it last week in this month’s Currently and I have to say I’m hooked.  Frozen and pumpkin somehow magically just go together.  No, this isn’t exactly a copycat version as it is missing the coffee flavor entirely, but my Healthy Pumpkin Pie Smoothie will totally sell you on fall smoothies.

Somehow these totally clean and healthy ingredients come together to make a smoothie that legit, actually tastes like you are drinking pumpkin pie.   Don’t believe me?  Try it for yourself!

The secret, like in a lot of creamy smoothies is a frozen banana.  It’s basically smoothie gold.

Don’t worry though, the flavor gets totally covered up by the Healthy Pumpkin Pie Smoothie flavors.  You really can’t even tell.

I topped mine with some whipped cream, which is not healthy at all… but it really adds to the pie flavor without adding too much bad stuff.

If I was eating this Pumpkin Pie Smoothie as breakfast, I’d leave it off or just put a small dollup… but for a fun snack/dessert I feel like the whipped cream is totally justified.

I mean looookkkkk…..  This baby looks and tastes amazing.

And remember, pumpkin is actually good for you!  It’s packed with vitamins and antioxidants so you can devour all these pumpkin themed dishes this year guilt-free.

Enjoy.

Healthy pumpkin pie smoothie that actually tastes like pumpkin pie! Clean eating with only 6 ingredients. Vegetarian with vegan option.
Course: Smoothie
Cuisine: American
Servings: 1 smoothie
Author: Julie Wunder
Ingredients
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie mix
  • 2 tablespoon plain or vanilla greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • Optional topping: whipped cream and cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Put all the ingredients in a blender and mix well.
  2. It tastes great as is, but you can also add the whipped cream and cinnamon for a more indulgent snack!
Recipe Notes

You can sub out any type of milk, but I like the way the vanilla flavor ads to the recipe. Make this vegan by adding a splash more almond milk in exchange for the greek yogurt or using non-dairy yogurt.

  1. […] real pumpkin puree, which is a must have in the kitchen this time of year.  I put it in my smoothies, overnight oats or even these No Bake Pumpkin Pie […]

    Pumpkin smoothies always hit the spot! Shh… but as much as I love them I must confess I have only made a couple this year compared to the almost daily of years past. I probably should make one again soon before the season ends.
    Happy Meatless Monday!

    Oooh pumpkin pie in a smoothie, now that sounds like a very sensible way to start the day!! Really lovely, and your photos are fab.

    This makes me feel like it could taste similar to this pumpkin pie milkshake I’ve been missing from where I went to college. It was a super-seasonal item and I always missed it by justthismuch. Definitely going to have to try it out! <3 I love adding frozen bananas to my smoothies!

    Yes, I totally agree that if you add a banana to a smoothie that has some other really strong, vibrant flavors you can’t taste the banana, but it adds so much creaminess. Checking this out this morning; maybe I can make it for breakfast!

      Yay! So glad you liked it. Hope you are having a good weekend.

    I love pumpkin smoothies, but have never made one with dairy-free yogurt – time to remedy that as your version looks fantastic!

    I add pumpkin to everything, nd certainly don’t hesitate to put it in my smoothie! Even if it’s not pumpkin pie flavoured, it makes it extra creamy! Your version looks a treat 🙂

  19. That looks like a nice little treat! 🙂

    Yum! This looks so good! I haven’t had the frozen PSL (I wish I could but I think there’s dairy in it) so I’ll make yours with some vegan yogurt and I’ll be good to go!! 🙂

      Ohhh! I wonder if they would make it with almond milk or something? They just started carrying it!

    I make a lot of smoothies because they are a quick and easy breakfast but I have never thought to include pumpkin. I am going to have to try your recipe.

    I always forget about my pumpkin smoothies because it’s in so much other stuff right now, but they are a great way to get in a healthy treat!
