Green Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

smoothie with spinach, oat milk, pumpkin puree, banana and pumpkin spices

Yes! Another pumpkin recipe – I still have leftovers J

But I can promise you this one is healthy. It’s another of my dessert related smoothies which I have featured throughout the year. Have you not seen them?

Since I started doing them, I knew I wanted to make a Pumpkin Pie flavour. Pumpkin is everywhere at the moment – as it’s nearly Halloween of course. And to kind of tie in with that, I decided to make this smoothie a green one - all witch-skin toned.

Green smoothies are even healthier than normal ones, lots of hidden gems in the ingredients which give them their hue. All sorts of veg can be used – such as kale or bok choy. But my green of choice is spinach. Packed full of iron and other nutrients, it also gives smoothies a deeply vert tinge.

To make this smoothie I used oat milk, which is packed full of fibre and has no dairy. You could use almond, soya, whatever you have. I used the canned pumpkin and the fruit of choice was a banana.

And to give it that authentic pumpkin pie taste – spice. I added cinnamon, nutmeg and ground ginger.
The spices too have lots of health benefits which you can read about in the Carrot Cake post.

I popped all of the ingredients in my fantastic Optimum 9400 from Froothie and let it do it’s thing.

The final drink tastes like pie, is refreshing, fills you up and gives you a great green ‘tash after you drink it…enjoy!

  1. Looks like a real power boost, just the thing for a top notch blogger before appearing at the Good Food Show! Lovely...

  2. Wow! Perfect. Pinning for later

  3. What a great use for a bit of leftover pumpkin puree! Being an ex-pat American it is in my DNA to hoard pumpkin puree (truly!) but I've not put it in a smoothie before. Love this Froothie-friendly idea, Stuart. :-)

    1. Thanks Kellie. I just wish we could get pumpkin more readily here x

  4. Hey I just love this idea! I have never added leftover pumpkin puree to my homemade Green energy drinks. This is such a great idea to make use of leftovers. Thanks for sharing this wonderful post!
