This six ingredient snack is easy to make and can be enjoyed any time of day. Pumpkin is full of carotenoids including beta-carotene, an antioxidant that protects our bodies from cell damaging free-radicals and promotes healthy eyes and skin. The addition of the banana and spices makes for a mild, sweet treat that contains no added sugars. 


  • ½ cup pumpkin puree (homemade or canned)*
  • 1 banana 
  • ¼ - ½ cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • ¼ tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 4-5 ice cubes
  • Pinch of cinnamon

*If using canned pumpkin, look for a product in a BPA-free can with no additives.


  1. In a blender, add the pumpkin puree, banana, almond or coconut milk and pumpkin spice.
  2. Pulse until well mixed; add the ice to the smoothie and continue pulsing until completely smooth.
  3. Serve the smoothie with a pinch of cinnamon on top
