Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Now that Halloween is behind us, it's time to gear up for the holidays. I'm going to share some awesome holiday recipes for Thanksgiving and Christmas from some great cookbooks over the next couple of months. But, I wanted to start this awesome pumpkin pie smoothie to start things off! 

My dear friend Dr Michelle Robin asked me if I had a killer pumpkin smoothie recipe for a function she is having at Your Wellness Connection this week, and I decided to tweak the existing pumpkin pie recipe on the blog and make it better. I was never quite happy with it. It was one of the first recipes I posted here, and my smoothie creations have developed and changed over the years that I didn't want to send something that wasn't up to the standard of the smoothies in my app. There is a no-pumpkin pie smoothie in my smoothies app. It's really delicious, alkaline, and healthy. But, you need to use coconut meat and specialty stevia to make it. I wanted to make sure I had something really accessible for you to make during the holidays. 

For conventional blenders soak your cashews for the best results. 

This new pumpkin pie smoothie does every creamy bite of a self-respecting pumpkin pie justice; and hits the spot for those of us not inclined to bake to get our fix. Enjoy!

Tip: the best way to clean your blender

After blending up something sticky, gooey or smelly, just place a few drops of soap in the carriage with some warm water and blend on high until all of the congealed food slips away from the blades and sides. Then repeat this process. Then rinse with water and presto! Clean carriage. 
If you have smells or stains repeat this process with some bicarbonate of soda or lemon juice and water. 
Check out the video on A No Hassle Way To Clean Your Blender that I did as part of the Chow Tips Series.

That recipe seems delicious !
Silly question, do I have to cook my pumpkin before ? Boiled ?
(I have one raw pumpkins slice)


Hey Modeflottant
Yes, you cook the pumpkin by steaming or roasting it.  ENJOY!

What’s a good substitution for banana? I’m allergic.


You can omit the banana and just add more sweetener to this smoothie, or you can use a little bit of tofu or avocado.
Enjoy :)

Hello, I have a food intolerance to oats.
what could I use instead? Will quinoa flakes achieve the same consistency? Thanks


You could omit the oats or add quinoa flakes.

Wow.. I will make it with my Professional Ninja Blender


its great and easy recipe. thanks I will following you


Hi Tess! I was wondering is the sea salt is an absolute requirement? I was thinking about making this smoothie for my wife, but topping it with pink Himalayan salt. What do you think?
