Pumpkin Smoothie


Be warned that this pumpkin smoothie recipe is for pumpkin lovers only! My 5-year-old and 1-year-old love this recipe as written. For a hot drink, use room temperature pumpkin purée (instead of frozen) and heat everything through on the stovetop.

  • 16 ounces frozen pumpkin puree

  • 2 cups milk

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  1. Place frozen pumpkin purée into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave on high to soften, 1 to 2 minutes.

  2. Pour milk into a blender. Add softened pumpkin purée, brown sugar, and cinnamon; blend until smooth.


To freeze pumpkin purée, spoon it into a resealable bag and store in the freezer for at least 24 hours. I use homemade pumpkin purée that I make each autumn and freeze in 2-cup increments — but canned, solid-pack pumpkin should work just fine.

If you find the pumpkin flavor too intense, try adding a frozen banana. You can play around with the flavors easily by adding some vanilla extract or pumpkin or apple pie spice instead of just cinnamon.
