This time of the year, I use a lot of canned pumpkin (or I even make my own pumpkin puree) and always have extra, so I decided to add some to my smoothie and loved it! So much so that it’s become a fall breakfast staple.
This pumpkin smoothie tastes just like pumpkin pie and is an simple way to start your morning. All you need to do is blend the ingredients and enjoy.
Looking for more ways to use up leftover pumpkin? I also love adding leftover puree to my Pumpkin Oatmeal Shake, Pumpkin Spiced Latte, or Pumpkin Overnight Oats. I also love Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal and Pumpkin Overnight Oats.

What You’ll Need
Let’s talk about what you’ll need to make this easy pumpkin pie smoothie. Scroll down to the recipe card below for measurements.
- Pumpkin: Use canned or homemade pumpkin puree.
- Milk: Add your milk of choice, like fat-free dairy milk, almond milk, oat milk, etc.
- Yogurt: Greek or plain yogurt will work, but Greek will give you more protein. You could even try it with vanilla yogurt and omit the sugar.
- Vanilla extract: Gives the pumpkin smoothie extra flavor.
- Spices: Pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon make this pumpkin smoothie taste like fall.
- Sweetener: I use brown sugar or maple syrup, but if you prefer to leave out the sugar, substitute it with stevia or monk fruit.

Can you freeze pumpkin puree for smoothies?
Pumpkin puree lasts in the fridge for about a week, but you can definitely freeze it so the leftovers don’t go to waste. Put it in an ice cube tray or muffin tin, and throw the cubes into a reusable container or zip-locked bag once frozen.
It’ll last in the freezer for a few months, and then you’ll have pre-portioned pumpkin on hand to make this smoothie again and again. Just throw a half-cup worth of frozen cubes into the blender and blend!
