What’s in A Pumpkin Smoothie?

The ingredients for this smoothie include pumpkin purée, frozen banana, ground flaxseed, pumpkin pie spice, milk, sweetener of choice, and vanilla extract.

The frozen banana gives the smoothie an ice-cream-like texture and the ground flaxseed makes it taste like a graham cracker crust has been blended right into the drink.

Use the Milk of Your Choice

You can use the whole milk since it is the richest and creamiest, or you can use any non-dairy milk substitute in its place.

If your non-dairy milk is already sweetened or vanilla flavored, you can reduce the added sweetener or skip the vanilla extract.

Sweeten to Taste

The best part when making your pumpkin smoothie is that you can add the amount of sugar as you want, and use whatever kind of sugar or sugar substitute that you like.

You can use brown sugar, honey, white sugar, agave, stevia, or whatever you like.

The frozen banana itself offers some sweetness to the smoothie, but the little extra sweetness really makes a difference.

Pumpkin Pie Spice

If you don’t have store-bought pumpkin pie spice, you can follow this recipe for homemade pumpkin pie spice, or just sub in 1/4 tsp cinnamon if needed.
