Pumpkin Breakfast Smoothie

Remember how Flash loves Pumpkin? Well, technically speaking I do, too, but I always blame my pumpkin stuff on him 🙂 Anywho – we wanted something new for breakfast the other day, and although I normally would have LOVED to whip up some muffins, the kids wanted a ‘smoothie’. Flash was in a pumpkin mood, so we tried something totally different than what we normally do – Pumpkin Breakfast Smoothie – and it turned out FABULOUS! Originally shared October 2nd, 2013

Pumpkin Breakfast Smoothie / Busy Mom's Helper

This is seriously so yummy, pretty darn healthy, and definitely hits a spot for those pumpkin lovers!

Pumpkin Breakfast Smoothie

Pumpkin Breakfast Smoothie Ingredients

1 cup canned Pumpkin (or fresh pumpkin puree, if you’d rather)
1 Banana
1/2 cup Applesauce
1/2 cup Milk
2 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
5 Tbsp. Honey
2 cups Ice (more if you want a thicker smoothie)
Cinnamon for sprinkling, if desired
Whipped topping, if desired

Pumpkin Breakfast Smoothie Directions

Blend all of the ingredients (except Cinnamon and Whipped Topping) in a blender until smooth.

Divide into glasses – about 2 large glasses, or more smaller ones (for the kids)

Put some Whipped Topping and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top, if desired. Enjoy!!!

If you follow me on Instagram, I posted a photo of Flash enjoying this smoothie two weeks ago 😀

  • Oh wow… this smoothie looks amazing! I *think* I might have everything to make one for myself this morning! 😉

    • Thanks, Carrie! Were you able to give it a try? I hope so – and hope you loved it as much as we do 😀

  • Oh my gosh this sounds delightful! I am definitely adding it to my list of things to make next week!

    • Great, thanks so much Chelsea!!! Let me know how you like it, please 😀 Have a wonderful week!

    • Thanks, Amber! Pumpkin is totally yummy, right? Do you enjoy it year-round, or mostly fall/holiday time?

  • Danielle, I’d love this healthy smoothie in the morning! I stopped by from Little Miss Celebrations’ link party. Have a nice day!

    • Thanks so much for the visit, Joan! Ya, this smoothie is such a great morning boost 😀

  • Yum! My husband saw pumpkin on sale the other day at the supermarket & I’d love to buy a few cans to try this, among other festive recipes. I know I could just use the similar squash I’ve got from the farmer’s market, but it’s so much work to make pumpkin silky smooth from scratch.

    • I totally agree – as much as I’d like to do stuff from scratch more often, pumpkin is just a bit too much for me LOL

  • Wow, your smoothie is a class act! I could down one of those babies in a heartbeat! I am just popping over from the memories by the mile linked. I would love it if you would drop by my site at http://www.kneadedcreations.com. I will look forward to seeing you there soon! Deb

    • Aww, thanks so much Deb!!! What a fun site – fun recipes, too 😀 Hope you have a fabulous week!

  • wow! That sounds SO good!! Next time I have pumpkin puree I will have to try. My boys will eat pretty much anything in a smoothie :o) I’m thinking vanilla yogurt would be good in this too… maybe I’ll swap out the apple sauce! thanks for the inspiration! You’ve been featured today at Nap-Time Creations!!! I’ve shared it on all my social media… please feel free to reshare or tweet :o) thanks for linking up to Tasteful Tuesdays! Emily

    • Oooh, I think vanilla yogurt is a fantastic idea – if you try it, please let me know how it works out with that! Thank you SO SO SO much for that feature – totally made my week!!! I’m looking forward to more of your posts for Kids Clothing Week…the hoodie today is so dang cute!!!

  • I just tried this and I love it! I switched the applesauce with french vanilla yogurt; it was delicious! I’ll definitely be making this again.

  • This looks delicious! I added up the calories and it’s only 307 calories per serving (using almond milk, not counting whipped cream). Definitely making this 😀

  • I am a lover of all things pumpkin! We wanted to try something new besides muffins and I found this recipe on Pinterest. Definitely a keeper! My one and three year old loved it!! Only change I made was I used unsweetened almond milk.

  • Thank you for sharing this on the Pin Junkie link up today. Glad I found you 🙂 I am pinning this to try ASAP!

  • I’ve made this recipe a couple times now and it is AWESOME! So I featured this post in a Thanksgiving round-up today. I hope you don’t mind!

  • This looks so tasty! I might have to make it for breakfast in the morning. My girls love smoothies, but I run out of ideas.

  • I am a “pumpkin year-round” kind of girl, so this is perfect for me. I’ve actually been trying to come up with a pumpkin smoothie recipe for a while now. You just saved me! Thanks for linking to Tips & Tricks. Come back and party with us tonight! ps. I pinned this to our Tips & Tricks board. 🙂

  • I would love to post your smoothie in a local recipe page for Mature Mix Magazine. Do I have your permission?
