Pumpkin spice smoothie


‘Tis the season for all things pumpkin, including this pumpkin spice smoothie.

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 autumn foods. Ah, autumn foods warm the tummy and the soul. Tis the season of comfort foods! 

Check out my autumn plant-based smoothie and meal recipes.

Pumpkin Smoothie Recipe that is just as tasty and twice as healthy as the classic Pumpkin Spice Latte.

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 Smoothie.

Top 7 ingredients in pumpkin spice smoothie

Spinach: This leafy green is full of health benefits AND doesn’t affect the taste of the smoothie. Sure, the smoothie is green, yet if you closed your eyes you’d have no clue. Spinach is a great leafy green to blend into smoothies for this very reason!

Almond Milk: We use almond milk to create a creamy texture and add a little bit of protein.

Banana: This fruit is a great natural sweetener and also helps make a creamy smoothie. Check out our other fav natural sweeteners for smoothies.

Mango: Frozen mango blends the pumpkin and banana together well. It’s also frozen which helps chill down the smoothie.

Pumpkin: To kick off autumn smoothies, we’re using pumpkin puree. Make sure to get one that doesn’t have any additives, just 100% pure pumpkin.

Pumpkin Spice: This seasoning is a blend of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and cloves.

Vanilla extract: Autumn just screams vanilla, and it really does add a depth of warmth and flavor to this pumpkin smoothie recipe.

    I’m surprised the recipes don’t show more chia and flax as well as other seeds and nuts, like sunflower, pumpkin, almonds, cashew etc.

    Hey Ron. We love adding proteins and superfoods to our smoothies. Here are two links to enjoy.

    Almond milk is not allowed for me since I have a severe allergic reaction to almonds and other types of nuts. Would this smoothie still work with water instead of the almond milk? Any other suggestions that I could substitute for the almond milk? Thanks!

  4. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    December 31st, 2014 at 6:46 pm

    Hey Barbara.

    Try hemp milk, rice milk, oat milk, or coconut milk. https://simplegreensmoothies.com/liquid-base

    i am loving this program!!
    would you please comment on the use of matcha powder in the smoothies and also advise on the amounts to use. thank you!

  6. Elaine

    February 28th, 2015 at 4:38 pm

    Would you suggest cooking the fresh pumpkin or adding it raw?

  7. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    March 2nd, 2015 at 10:38 am

    Either way will work. 🙂

    I added chia seeds to mine and some extra cinnamon. Pretty yummy but I had to put it in a colored glass because it looks like pureed peas baby food lol.

    Whatever it takes to get those great nutrients! 🙂

    I always cut pumpkins and freeze them to make soup. Can I use these chunks of pumpkin a smoothie??

  11. SGS Rawkstar Jessie

    March 4th, 2015 at 6:26 am

    Yes, just make sure your blender can handle to frozen chunks. You might want to let the pumpkin thaw a little before blending. 🙂

    This smoothie is wonderful. I used sweet potatoe instead of pumpkin and used cinnamon, no vanilla extract but added vanilla plant based protein.

  13. SGS Rawkstar

    June 25th, 2015 at 2:23 pm

    Hi Linnett,

    Yum, we love blendin’ with sweet potato! Find out why here..

    Mmmmm…. one of my new favorites! This will definitely keep me away from those sugary pumpkin spice Starbucks lattes!

    September 8th, 2015 at 8:31 pm

    Hi Anna,

    You must really love this recipe! Those PSL’s are tempting during the chilly fall weather! Adding pumpkin spice to our Spiced Almond Milk recipe is another great alternative as well!

    Hi, got a question! (Again… though different place this time.)

    In the recipe it says “1 cup pumpkin, unsweetened (canned or fresh)”. Now, pumpkins aren’t really readily served in cans up here in the Netherlands, but I can get my hands on fresh pumpkins. I was just wondering, though… Do you guys cook the pumpkin first or do you throw it in the mix raw? I’m a bit hesitant about raw pumpkin, to be honest, so I’d love to hear from you about this!

    Other than that, sounds like a great recipe for the days to come! (It’s all wet and blustery weather up here, very autumny… Perfect pumpkin weather, though!)

  17. SGS Rawkstar

    September 17th, 2015 at 6:39 am

    Hi Vreni,

    Another great question! Keep them coming! I personally love to roast pumpkins, blend into a puree, then store in the fridge or freezer until I’m ready to use in a green smoothie recipe or other kitchen inspiration!

    Angela Liddon from “Oh She Glows” has great instructions for creating pumpkin puree from scratch…

    Getting excited for apple + pumpkin picking, + everything pumpkin spice!

    HAPPY FALL! 🙂

    September 21st, 2015 at 6:14 am

    Roasting pumpkin sounds like a great idea, and I’ll definitely check out the site. Thanks so much! Lucky for me, I already made my own pumpkin spice last year, so that’s waiting for me to use. 😀 (Yes, no pumpkin spice readily available in the store either…)

    Happy fall to you all as well! 🙂

  19. SGS Rawkstar

    September 21st, 2015 at 6:17 pm

    Hi Vreni,

    Yum! Love having pumpkin spice on hand, especially with the cooler weather starting! We’re coming out with a new meal plan called “Let’s Eat,” dinner recipes for a whole month… + we include our very own pumpkin spice recipe!!

    Cheers 🙂

    September 22nd, 2015 at 10:17 am

    Just made this and it is delicious! I used half coconut milk and half vanilla almond milk so I did not add the vanilla extract. A great way to use pumpkin, thanks!

  21. SGS Rawkstar

    September 22nd, 2015 at 11:26 am

    Hi MCB,

    This is one of our favorite fall recipes, + we greatly appreciate you sharing your green smoothie love! We hope you joined our October 30-Day Challenge, we’ll be sharing tons of our fall favorites!

    How about an eggnog smoothy.

  23. SGS Rawkstar Amanda

    October 18th, 2017 at 10:00 am

    Hi Marie,

    We love holiday inspired recipes! And will definitely add “eggnog” to our green smoothie inspiration!

  24. Kristin

    September 10th, 2018 at 10:19 am

    Do you have a suggestion to swap for the mango? I can’t have it as I’m following a low FODMAP diet for IBS. (No stone fruits allowed ) I’d love your help, if you have an idea!

  25. SGS Rawkstar Amanda

    September 10th, 2018 at 3:02 pm

    Hey Kristin,

    Yes we do. You can totally substitute the mango for pineapple, papaya, or peaches.

    Hope you enjoy it!!

  26. Rachel

    September 13th, 2018 at 10:06 am

    My kids and I absolutely LOVE this smoothie! I packed it full of kale and swapped mango for a peach (it’s what I had on hand). My youngest licked the cup clean!

  27. Tiffany Richardson

    August 28th, 2019 at 2:25 pm

    This has to be one of my favorites! Its perfect for the switch to fall. And while I wish I could drink pumpkin spice lattes everyday its neither healthy or practical. This smoothy gives me the best of both worlds.

  28. SGS Rawkstar Carissa

    August 28th, 2019 at 4:38 pm

    Thanks Tiffany! It really is the best craving when you are wanting the pumpkin spice flavors that are starting up now. Yummm I love fall!!!
