What you need to make a vegan pumpkin pie smoothie…
- Bananas – frozen bananas give it sweetness and a creamy ice cream texture.
- Pumpkin Puree – for the pumpkin flavor. You can use any canned pumpkin that you like or mashed baked pumpkin.
- Sweetener – any sweetener you like will work like maple syrup, agave, coconut sugar, or just sugar. (optional)
- Plant-Based Milk – any plant-based milk will work. (If you are using the sweeter vanilla flavored milk, you may want to add less sugar).
- Pumpkin Pie Spice – to give it that authentic pumpkin pie flavor! If you don’t have this, you can use cinnamon with a shake of nutmeg instead.
How do I make a pumpkin pie smoothie?
- Simply put a frozen banana, a scoop of canned pumpkin puree, sweetener, pumpkin pie spice, and your choice of milk in a blender.
- Turn the blender on for about 30 seconds until it’s well blended.
- Serve with vegan whipped cream on top! (optional)
- Use ripe bananas – the ones that have some brown spots. These will be naturally sweeter and you won’t need as much sweetener.
- Peel a bunch of ripe bananas and break them in half. Put them in a freezer bag and keep frozen until you are ready to use in smoothies.
- If using my vegan whipped cream to top your pumpkin pie smoothie, you can make it ahead and keep in the freezer as you would cool whip.
What should I do with the leftover pumpkin puree?
