I partly blame this pumpkin pie green smoothie. Can’t stop, won’t stop.
This smoothie comes together in 5 minutes, using 1 blender, and requires just 6 ingredients.
The ingredients are SO simple you likely have them in your pantry right now. Pumpkin purée is blended with frozen, ripe banana, almond + coconut milk, pumpkin pie spice and spinach!
Two things are optional: A greens powder and protein powder (listed below).
Seeing as I’ve just posted a Vegan Protein Powder Review, I suggest two of my favorites for this smoothie. However, protein is optional! The addition just makes it more of a meal than a snack.
I think you guys are going to LOVE this smoothie! It’s:
& Insanely delicious
I couldn’t believe how delicious this smoothie was at first sip. It makes the perfect fall breakfast, post-workout recovery, or afternoon snack. If you aren’t into pumpkin, try it with Cinnamon-Sugar Apples, Matcha, or Mango instead!

Pumpkin Pie Green Smoothie
- 1 small frozen ripe banana
- 1/4 cup pumpkin purée (not pumpkin pie mix)
- 1 1/4 cup organic spinach (best if frozen*)
- 1/4 cup light coconut milk
- 1/3 cup plain unsweetened almond milk (more to thin)
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice*
- 1 tsp green powder* (optional)
- 2 Tbsp plain or vanilla protein powder* (optional)
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy and smooth, scraping down sides as needed. If too thick, add more almond or coconut milk.
Taste and adjust flavor as needed. For more pumpkin flavor, add more pumpkin pie spice. For more sweetness, add more banana, or a bit more vanilla protein powder - optional (or a bit of maple syrup, agave or stevia extract).
Serve immediately. Best when fresh, though will keep in the refrigerator well covered up to 2 days.
*I buy bagged organic spinach and throw it right in the freezer! This way it keeps for weeks and keeps your smoothie cold and creamy. However, fresh spinach will work fine, too. You may just want to add 1-2 ice cubes to cool it down.
*DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice.
*My favorite Green Powder is by the brand Amazing Grass, which you can find full size + sample packs of at Whole Foods, or order it online.
*My two favorite vanilla protein powders at the moment are Bob’s Red Mill Vanilla Protein with Chia Seed + Probiotics (used in this smoothie), and Garden of Life Raw Organic Protein Powder in Vanilla Bean.
*Nutrition information is a rough estimate calculated without protein powder or greens powder.
