Have you looked at the calorie stats on Starbucks’ Pumpkin Latte? A grande has 380 calories. I tried to make myself feel better by ordering a tall, with skim milk, and no whipped cream. It still comes in at 200 calories, and really, it was nothing to write home about.

This Pumpkin Smoothie is. 

This healthy pumpkin smoothie is the way to go folks. It’s like a good for you pumpkin pie ice cream that you can have for breakfast! And, unlike a Pumpkin Spice Latte, this actually fills you up and gives you lasting energy to tackle the morning. It’s the best way to start the day!

Plus, it’s super simple to make. Just pop all the ingredients into a high-powered blender, such as the Vitamix, and give everything a whirl. It comes out super frothy and perfectly delicious.

There are tons of nutrients packed in here.

Almond butter provides protein. Pumpkin is rich in Vitamin A and antioxidants. And, the flax adds fiber and essential Omega-3 fats. Also, it’s dairy-free and vegan.

Ingredients needed

  • Almond Milk – or your favorite milk. Oat, cashew, dairy milk all work well.
  • Pumpkin Puree – this is the unsweetened pumpkin sold in cans. You can also use homemade pumpkin puree.
  • Banana – adds a natural sweetness to the smoothie.
  • Almond Butter – or peanut butter, cashew butter, or sunflower butter.
  • Flaxseed – adds a boost of fiber and nutrients.
  • Molasses – adds a rich flavor and hint of sweetness. You can also use maple syrup or honey.
  • Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Allspice, Ginger – the standard pumpkin pie spices that you LOVE!

How to make it

  • Simply place all the ingredients in a high powered blender and process until smooth.

Note: This pumpkin pie smoothie is definitely thick. So, if your blender is having problems processing it, just add a splash more of almond milk to thin it out a bit.

I’m loving indulging in one of these every morning. Quick and easy, it’s such a delicious morning treat for the fall season. And I’m all for saving up those calories so that I can have an extra large bowl of pasta for dinner. It’s all about priorities, right?
