‘Tis the season for pumpkin spice smoothies!

In many lovely places, the leaves have already begun to turn rich, warm colors and the air has cooled down to the perfect temperature. It’s one of the most festive times of year— and I just can’t get enough of it. Especially the foods. Ah, autumn foods warm the tummy and the soul. Tis the season of comfort foods! 

All sorts of bakeries and coffee shops will soon be stocking their shelves with pumpkin bread, muffins and coffee. And we will be there enjoying these treats as well! Yet at Simple Green Smoothies, we also think it’s important to make our health a priority and not go overboard on those addictive fall specialties that are often loaded with sugars, unhealthy fats and caffeine.

That’s why we created a healthy alternative—our favorite, fall-inspired green smoothie recipe, the Pumpkin Spice Green Smoothie. We hope you make it, enjoy it and spread the green smoothie love to your friends on Instagram and Facebook.  (You can show us your #pumpkinspice creation by tagging @SimpleGreenSmoothies).

    I love pumpkin, but I’m not a huge fan of mango. What would be a good substitution?

    Hey Christy! Do you like peaches?

    Instead of using the banana and mango (I have issues with Candida overgrowth) I will use 1 avocado and a few drops of French Vanilla Stevia!
    Yummy!

    Hey Rebecca!

    RAWsome, way to make it work for you! Glad you are enjoying it!

    Christy, what about pear instead of mango?

  10. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    August 26th, 2014 at 5:20 am

    Another great idea, Carla! Thanks!

    Great recipe ladies!! I am so excited to try this today. The pumpkin spice l’atte is my FAVE fall drink. I am stoked for a healthier version..

    Also.. you must tell me where to find the diamond patterned mason jar. I must have it!

    Thanks

  14. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    August 26th, 2014 at 5:22 am

    Hey Katrina!

    So glad you are going to try this green smoothie! 🙂

    Another Rawkstar Team Member has that exact jar, but I got a tall, skinny, diamond print one at Hobby Lobby. Hope you can still find one. 🙂

    Hi – this recipe looked so yummy, but when I went to the store, I couldn’t find any pumpkin or pumpkin spice (I live in Thailand and those aren’t popular ingredients. But, I did find some yams and cinnamon that I used as substitutes and it turned out great! Like a little pumpkin pie party in my mouth!

    August 27th, 2014 at 5:40 am

    Hey John!

    Thanks for the comment. Have you tried ‘Thanksgiving in your mouth’? https://simplegreensmoothies.com/Recipes/thanksgiving-in-your-mouth

    Pumpkin Spice is a mixture of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/pumpkin-pie-spice-i/

    Hi Jessie – thank you so much for the suggestion (re: Thanksgiving-In-Your-Mouth) and the explanation for pumpkin spice. I’m looking forward to giving this recipe a try. As you might imagine, outside the US, it’s hard to have Thanksgiving in the same way and this will feed my desire for the flavors. Keep the recipes coming – you guys are doing amazing work! -j

    It is pumpkin time and I cant wait to try this smoothie. It looks delish. thanks for the recipe. I have done my own version in the past but will definitely try yours.

  21. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    August 27th, 2014 at 12:36 pm

    Glad you will be trying this one, Deanne! ENJOY! 🙂

    I tried this today and it was a pea soup color! The flavor was a little strange too. I think I’ll give it one more try but without the spinach…

  23. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    August 28th, 2014 at 10:01 am

    Hey Julie!

    Don’t worry too much on the color, your body with thank you for the yummy fruits, veggies and leafy greens. 🙂 Which other smoothies have you tried? Beginner’s Luck yet? https://simplegreensmoothies.com/Recipes/beginners-luck

    I can’t see the ingredients or directions for this recipe or any of the other new ones you’ve posted, on either my ipad or a windows laptop. It’s just blank under the headers “ingredients” or “directions”. I’m sad, the new recipes all look so yummy! Any idea why this is happening?

  25. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    September 3rd, 2014 at 5:27 am

    Hey Abby.

    Thanks for letting us know. I checked this recipe out on my iPad and it is showing the ingredients and directions. Sorry you are up able to see them, not sure why that is happening:

    Ingredients

    2 cups spinach
    2 cups almond milk, unsweetened
    1 cup plain canned pumpkin, unsweetened (or fresh pumpkin)
    1 banana
    1 cup mango
    1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

    Directions

    1. Blend spinach and almond milk until smooth.

    2. Add remaining ingredients, and blend until smooth. Enjoy!

    September 3rd, 2014 at 9:07 am

    Ok, I just figured it out — it’s a browser issue. It’s Chrome. I can see everything just fine in IE. BTW, in Chrome I can’t even see the ingredients and directions in your comment! I can see all of the other text.

  27. Jennifer

    September 3rd, 2014 at 8:51 am

    Abby, you might need to clean out your browsers; History, Cookies, etc.
    Good luck!

  28. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    September 3rd, 2014 at 2:26 pm

    Thanks, Jennifer.

    Glad you figured it out Abby. 🙂

  29. Jennifer

    September 3rd, 2014 at 8:54 am

    Made this and it’s very good! Not exactly “pumpkin pie” but tasty!
    One thing I noticed is that it seems less filling than I’d like – and I drank 20oz over 2 1/2 hour period. Am considering adding coconut oil or another form of protein.
    Suggestions welcome…

  30. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    September 3rd, 2014 at 2:26 pm

    Hey Jennifer.

    Sounds like you are on the right track with adding coconut oil. Here is a link to our favorite proteins to keep you fuller longer. 🙂 https://simplegreensmoothies.com/tips/protein

    So happy I found your website this week! I’m new to making green smoothies, and I’m excited to try your recipes! 🙂

    What’s the main difference between this recipe and your other pumpkin spice recipe? 🙂 Do they have a similar taste/nutritional value?

    Thanks!!

  32. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    September 5th, 2014 at 11:37 am

    Hey Kate.

    Thanks for the comment. The recipe that you linked is sweetened with a carrot and banana, but we use a banana and mango in this recipe. Both are great choices for your pumpkin fix. 🙂

  33. Megan

    September 7th, 2014 at 1:56 pm

    How about a Gingerbread Smoothie???

  34. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    September 8th, 2014 at 6:28 am

    We don’t have one yet, but great suggestion. 🙂

    Hey SGS team!
    Do you think this would work using water as the liquid?
    TIA~
    Kiran

    September 11th, 2014 at 6:42 am

    Hey Kiran.

    We love using water in our recipes. Here is a link to our favorite liquid bases: (https://simplegreensmoothies.com/liquid-base) The almond milk adds health protein and flavor. You are more that welcome to try it with water, rice milk, or coconut milk. 🙂 Let us know how it goes.

    September 13th, 2014 at 8:12 am

    I’d like to use sweet potatoes instead of pumpkin, and because I’m allergic to mango use peaches, kale instead of spinach (affects my gout).

    This is going to be my Thanksgiving dessert!

  38. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    September 15th, 2014 at 6:42 am

    Hey Barbara. Have you tried Thanksgiving in your Mouth?

    https://simplegreensmoothies.com/Recipes/thanksgiving-in-your-mouth

    I think you might enjoy it. 🙂

    LOVE THIS! I didn’t have banana handy so I used a cup of red apples instead. It was AMAZING!

  40. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    September 18th, 2014 at 6:06 am

    🙂 Wonderful, way to improvise.

  41. Rachel

    September 22nd, 2014 at 7:12 pm

    What is a good substitute for the banana?

  42. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    September 23rd, 2014 at 7:20 am

    Hey Rachel.

    Try doubling the mango or adding an avocado in place of the banana. 🙂 Hope that helps.

  43. Janet

    September 25th, 2014 at 4:45 am

    Was wondering since I used canned pumpkin should I reduce amount used? The taste had to much pumpkin for me.

  44. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    September 25th, 2014 at 6:35 am

    Hey Janet.

    Thanks for the comment. Yes. Next time try 1/2 or 3/4 cup instead of the 1 cup. Was your pumpkin in the can sweetened? Sometimes that can cause it to be overpowering too. 🙂
