This Pumpkin Pie Smoothie recipe is a simple and delicious treat when baking the real deal may not be on the agenda. Smooth and creamy and with just the right amount of spice, it will have you celebrating fall flavors all season!
Thanksgiving may be over, but pumpkin season is not! I could eat anything pumpkin year round, but I do love to keep it for the seasons that I am looking to be warm and cozy. I hope you got to enjoy the perfect slice of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving! Now that Thanksgiving is over, I’m sure a little leftover pumpkin pie sounds really good right now, right?
Well, how about a Pumpkin Pie Smoothie? You can get that same cozy, spicy flavor packed into a thick, creamy, smoothie. Who can pass on that? Not me! While the weather outside doesn’t have me craving smoothies as much right now as I do in the spring and summer, I still make them from time to time. And since I have plenty of pumpkin sitting around lately, adding it to the mix just made sense. And it was delicious!
This smoothie definitely tastes more like dessert, but don’t be fooled, it’s good for you! I added some chia seeds to mine, but feel free to add in any other super foods you prefer to really rev this thing up. The date adds just a touch of sweetness but I have also added a little maple syrup and loved that as well. This smoothie is made for two, but it’s pretty simple to cut in half if it’s just for a single serving. Also, I have added spinach or greens to the mix before, but just be warned, the color is not the most impressive. It will not look so much like pumpkin pie anymore if you add it, but have at it if you want!
December is just a few days away, so that means peppermint chocolate EVERYTHING will be on my radar! I won’t completely forget about pumpkin, but I am a sucker for anything chocolate and mint…well, really anything chocolate is probably the reality. Enjoy!
