Fancy a slice of pumpkin pie but not in the mood for baking? This pumpkin pie smoothie is for you! Yes, it’s like pumpkin pie in a glass. You get the taste and the enjoyment without even having to switch your oven on. Woohoo!
This smoothie is velvety smooth, ice-cold and refreshing and combines the best fall flavors in a glass!
To make this smoothie you need to have some frozen bananas on hand. Well, truth be told I recommend you always have some frozen bananas on hand, that way you can make all sorts of awesome smoothies like my carrot cake smoothie, or my double thick chocolate shake!
Whenever you have ripe bananas on hand, peel them, break them into quarters and freeze in a freezer bag. That way you are always set for any smoothie craving that comes your way.
And if you’re not a huge banana fan, never fear! You really can’t taste the banana flavor once blended with other flavors. Frozen bananas just add the most wonderful texture and base to a smoothie.
This pumpkin pie smoothie is just 5 ingredients, takes 5 minutes to prepare and gets its wonderful flavor from pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, maple syrup and coconut milk.
I went with a low fat coconut milk, because I didn’t want to make it too rich, but if you’re laughing at me for saying that (I’m kind of laughing at myself to tell you the truth, like what? What does too rich mean?), then just go ahead and use the full fat version!
So if you want all the flavor and deliciousness of a large slice of pumpkin pie but don’t want to switch your oven on, then whip up this baby in your blender!
