(Holiday) Pumpkin Smoothie

Pumpkin anything is quite popular around holiday season, and it just happens to be my one of my favorite things about the holidays. I LOVE pumpkin everything — from pumpkin dishes and soups, pumpkin baked goods, to pumpkin drinks. As long as it’s plant-based and healthy, I’ll happily stuff my face full. And as for pumpkin smoothies, I know there is a plethora of pumpkin smoothie recipes out there, but I’d like to share my simple recipe that is made with a short list of ingredients.

(Organic) Ingredients

Makes 16 oz

1/2 c pumpkin puree
1 ripe banana
1 – 2 medjool dates, depending on how sweet you’d like it to be
1 c soy milk, or your choice of non-dairy milk
1/2 tsp non-alcoholic vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Blend it all together until smooth and enjoy!

This smoothie makes a perfect dessert drink, which is when I like to enjoy it. It’s not runny, but not too thick either. And, it’s guilt-free delicious and nutritious!

Before I let you go, thanks for reading and stopping by. Whether you love pumpkin as much as I do or not, I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Angie, please forgive this dumb question but when you say “pumpkin puree” do you mean like the canned/jarred kind you would use in a pie if you weren’t cooking your own pumpkin from scratch? Or do you mean cook the pumpkin then use the puree? In other words, do we have permission to use canned pumpkin? 😉

    • Hi Lori! Not a dumb question at all! Yes, you can use canned pumpkin. I just said “puree” because you can use either canned or cooked pumpkin that has been pureed. I’ve used both before, but canned is definitely more convenient. 😉
