Instructions Checklist

  • Remove pumpkin from freezer and allow to soften at room temperature, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Pour milk into the blender; add pumpkin, banana, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth, about 3 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can substitute the milk with soy or almond milk. I buy big cans of pumpkin puree and pre-bag them in 1 cup amounts so I can pull them out and make them whenever.

Like drinking pumpkin pie but so much healthier and refreshing. I used frozen bananas (I keep in freezer since I do lots of smoothies) and did not freeze the pumpkin. I also increased milk to 2 cups. With the frozen bananas it is still very thick. Thanks for the recipe! I am always looking for a new smoothie idea that is not full of fats and sugar. Read More

This was really good. Instead of using vanilla extract I used a scoop of vanilla protein powder. Very filling and healthy fall breakfast! Read More

I doubled this recipe. I threw in two raw eggs and used Truvia sweetener instead of brown sugar. One of the best smoothies I have had in a long time--the kids really liked it too. VERY filling. Read More

Loved it. We made this for the staff at work and they said by far the best smoothie we've made. After you make the first one you can add additional sugar spice and vanilla to taste. We added just a bit more and it literally tasted like pie in my mouth. I was originally skeptical when my coworker suggested it but came to love. We added a little whipped cream on top with sprikled cinnamon and a cute straw. Oh yes the pumpkin was frozen a bit so it made it nice and cold! perfection. Read More

I used frozen bananas and pumpkin pie spice in place of cinnamon. Would definitely make again! My whole family including picky kids enjoyed this one. Read More

I just made this smoothie tonight and I instantly fell in love. It is AMAZING! I used the exact ingredients and ingredient amounts that the recipe called for and I will definitely be making this again in the near future. I used vanilla soy milk. The banana really brings out the flavor. So filling but now I want more!! I even dressed it up with a little whip cream. My taste buds are jumping for joy! Read More

This is a good recipe but when I made it as-is it was lacking a bit. I added 2T of Crema Mexicana (a version of whole cream) and it was PERFECT. Read More
