Quick Tips for Best Results
- Use unsweetened pumpkin rather than pumpkin pie filling. You could use canned pumpkin pie filling but just know you may need to adjust the maple syrup and spice.
- Use a strong blender that can cut through the ice and make a creamy smooth smoothie.
- You may want to adjust the maple syrup and cinnamon (or pumpkin spice) depending on personal preference.
- I like to use regular milk for this smoothie but you can try your favorite milk substitute if you’d like.
Pumpkin Smoothie FAQ
How should I store this Pumpkin Smoothie?
Smoothies are generally best when consumed right away, BUT if you really want to make ahead or store the leftovers, I’d suggest pouring the smoothie in an ice cube tray, freeze, then pop out the cubes into a glass and defrost in the fridge.
Can I use something other than yogurt?
Frozen banana slices would be a great alternative or even cottage cheese. You could also use a sweetened or flavored yogurt if you’d like but may need to adjust the maple syrup and cinnamon (or pumpkin spice).
What else can I add to this smoothie?
For more of a green smoothie, you could add kale and/or spinach. Of course your favorite smoothie additions like chia seeds, protein powder, etc. would also work. Frozen banana slices or even coconut would be great too.
Can I make this into a smoothie bowl?
Yes of course! Pour the smoothie into a bowl and add your favorite toppings like chopped fruit, granola, oats, nuts, and even a dash of cinnamon or pumpkin spice.
