Can't Get Enough Pumpkin

It's true.  I can't.  I really wanted to make a pumpkin pie, but I've been feeling a little slobby lately.  Plus, I just got a new job that involves wearing running tights every day, soooo yeah.  I decided to make this little number instead:

(Vegan) Pumpkin Pie Smoothies 

(Makes 2 servings)
- 3/4 can pumpkin puree
- 2 bananas, sliced and frozen*
-  3/4 cup almond or coconut milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 
- 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons fresh ginger
-  A few shakes cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt 

- Throw it all in a blender!
- Enjoy!

To make this super yummy, add some vegan whipped cream on top (whip together some almond or coconut milk and powdered sugar), with a vegan caramel or pecan drizzle!

* I'm serious.  These are standing in for the ice!


  1. Yes! Pumpkin pie smoothie sounds great!

  2. oh my goodness that sounds amazing! i just made pumpkin pie using some acorn squash and i thought to myself, thank god tomorrow is the farmer's market because i need to get another sugar pumpkin. then i see this! i cannot wait to try this out. it looks so good! thanks for posting! do you mind if i share on my blog - will link to your post and will give full smoothie credit to you of course! i am going to post my own pumpkin/acorn pie recipe as well, but would love to try your smoothie recipe out so i can include it as a companion recipe.

  3. The smoothie looks great. I am having the same experience right now and want to make a lot of pumpkin items.

  5. Ha! Coconut milk! That's what I just put into my newly developed pie filling! That smoothie must be awesome.

  6. Coconut milk and Pumpkin, great mix. What a great way to start the day. Thank you for posting. Speaking of pumpkin, I'm having a giveaway on my MoFo blog for pumpkin whoopees or the vegan version (voopees)Swing by if you get a chance.

  7. whoa! this is the second winter squash smoothie I've seen on mofo... definitely not some thing that would have occured to me, but it really sounds good!
