Pumpkin Spice Smoothie

Sharing is caring!

Pumpkins spice recipes are some of my favorites and the season is here! There is nothing that says fall like this flavor.

There are so many ways to incorporate pumpkin into our daily routines but more than that I want to show you an excellent way to include more dairy into your diet! Our sixteen year old is on the hunt these days for ways to increase his protein intake. Milk is a great way to do this!

Let me show you how easy this pumpkin spice smoothie is to make.


  • 1 c cow milk
  • 1 c ice
  • 3/4 c pumpkin puree
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 c vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 c oats
  • 2 teaspoons of pumpkins pie spice
  • 2 T sugar (if you want it sweet) you could also do honey

We always want to remember (and this is something I am always reminding our teen who has reached an age where he really cares about his physical fitness which can also be boosted by using testosterone supplements to improve energy), nutrition is more than counting calories; it’s about making each calorie count. And dairy does it! Dairy foods (cow’s milk, cheese, yogurt, etc.) pack a powerful nutrient punch with nine (9) essential nutrients, making them a healthy and delicious choice. So not only is this shake perfect because of our love for pumpkin, but we are making the calories count.

Add all of the ingredients to a blender. Yes, even the dry oatmeal… no worries it will get all mixed up in there.

Did you know that at 8 grams of protein per glass, you would have to drink 8 cups of almond milk to match the protein in just 1 cup of cow’s milk.

Get every last drop of that milk!!

Blend in your bullet or traditional blender for about 1 minute or until everything is well combined.

Once it is combined well, pour it into your favorite glass or mug. This made enough for two full drinks.

I topped it with a little whipped topping which you can omit if you want.

I also added some more pumpkin pie spice to the top.

It is truly that simple!

  1. Pumpkin Spice *anything* is always at the top of my list at this time of year. I know my husband would LOVE this, especially. Definitely bookmarking this to make soon. Happy almost Fall!

  2. Oh this looks so delicious! We love milk in our house and I love the health benefits it provides, but finding new and creative ways to get it into our diet is always great. I am saving this, it would be a great treat this fall or anytime really!

    it sound like a great breakfast or lunch for anyone.

  4. I am so glad that pumpkin everything is coming. This smoothy looks delicious. I can see myself having this for breakfast and dinner dessert. I think I will serve this on my next playdate group. All the moms love smoothies. I wonder if it would be good with coconut milk or if that would change the flavor. Thank you for sharing.

    Love the fall is just around the corner and the pumpkin spice drinks and recipes are on the way. This looks like a super healthy version, too. I’ll probably make mine with honey, which is another favorite.

  6. Pumpkin is one of my favorite flavors. And I really do like Latte Quite a bit. I know so many people who say that the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks is a must drink coffee when it comes to the fall and holiday season. I will definitely have to try this out and it’s always nice to make things like this at home.
