Creamy Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl
This Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl tastes like a smoothie version of pumpkin pie filling! It’s loaded with veggies for a filling, nutrient-dense breakfast that’s bursting with fall spices. It’s gluten-free, paleo, vegan and Whole30.
I’m a smoothie girl. Even as the seasons change, I’ll keep doing my smoothie bowl thing. Since it is fall though, I’ve got to incorporate some of my favorite fall flavors into my smoothie bowls too, instead of my usual acai bowl or berry pitaya smoothie bowl. This Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl is everything you love about autumn flavors, packed into a refreshingly delicious breakfast.
And the ingredients? Well, by how delicious it tastes, you’d never guess that it was loaded with a whole bunch of veggies! In fact…there’s more vegetables in this smoothie than there are fruits. Bet you wouldn’t guess it, though ;)
What’s in this pumpkin pie smoothie bowl?
Banana is the only fruit invited to the party. It helps make the pumpkin pie smoothie super creamy and it adds a little bit of sweetness as well. Pre-steamed and frozen cauliflower also helps add some creaminess to the smoothie, and it does not taste like cauliflower in your smoothie – promise!
Of course, it wouldn’t be a pumpkin pie smoothie without pumpkin puree in there. There’s also some steamed + frozen butternut squash. Like the cauliflower, the squash is undetectable. Because the flavor is so similar to the pumpkin, it just adds a bit of extra complexity and sweetness. It also adds a bunch of vitamins (especially vitamin A!) and nutrients to the smoothie bowl.
I also added a date to help sweeten things up a bit. You could add 2 if you prefer things a bit sweeter or skip the sweetener altogether! We also add pumpkin pie spice, a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger to add those warm fall flavors.
We add a tablespoon of almond butter for some extra protein and creaminess, and then blend with some dairy-free milk. The resulting smoothie bowl tastes like frozen pumpkin pie filling – it’s smooth, creamy, and full of warming spices.
What’s the best blender for smoothie bowls?
I blended this smoothie bowl with my new Explorian E310, a new lower priced blender from Vitamix. I love this little guy! It’s shorter and smaller than my old Vitamix, and can fit under my counter all stacked, which is a BIG plus. Despite its smaller stature, it still has ALL the power I’ve come to expect from a Vitamix. It made easy work of this smoothie bowl.
Best toppings for a pumpkin pie smoothie bowl?
I topped mine with homemade pumpkin granola, flaked coconut, chia seeds, and a drizzle almond butter. It was like pumpkin pie in a bowl.
If you’re still dealing with hot weather, you’ve got to try this pumpkin pie smoothie bowl! Or, if you’ve already got the heat jacked up, you can let it cool you down a bit. If you’re a pumpkin pie lover, this recipe is a must try. Enjoy!
