How To Make A Healthy Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl

Written by Shelby Torrese

Jump To Recipe

The perfect transition from summer to fall includes this pumpkin smoothie bowl—a cold bowl of deliciousness packed with warming spices, and of course, pumpkin. If you’re not sure how this pumpkin pie smoothie could be any good, think again. The pumpkin purée does not have as strong of a flavor as you’d think. Plus, it gets blended with spices and sweeteners like Medjool dates, vanilla, and cinnamon.

If you haven’t gathered it already, this isn’t just any smoothie bowl. This is a festive, fall-inspired smoothie bowl to help support your body as the weather and season changes. It’s packed with anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting ingredients, plus my all-time favorite ingredient—anti-aging collagen. Who knew beauty hacks could taste so good?!

So, soak up the last bit of warm weather while it lasts, and enjoy all of the tasty, nutritious flavors of this pumpkin smoothie bowl

Pumpkin Smoothie Health Benefits

This pumpkin pie smoothie is chock-full of benefits for helping the body adapt to the changes in the air. Enjoy all the spices of fall, without worrying about seasonal colds. The real secret ingredient is Super Youth collagen, a good-for-you and great anti-aging ingredient. You can use the Unflavored or Chocolate Cake flavor. The Unflavored collagen will keep the pumpkin and spices as the main flavor, or if you’re a chocoholic, using the Chocolate Cake flavor will give you that additional satisfaction. 

  • Gut Support—Collagen is a great gut health ingredient for its ability to support the lining of our intestines, which is key for reducing inflammation. Adding it into this pumpkin smoothie is a great way to support the gut and reduce upset stomachs. [1]
  • Immune Boosting—Pumpkin is high in Vitamins A & C, which are great fall and winter vitamins as they help to fight oxidative stress and boost immunity. This pumpkin pie smoothie bowl contains great sources of immune-boosters. [2]
  • Regulates Digestion—Medjool dates are a great source of fiber. It’s important to add fiber to your diet to regulate digestion, and help avoid constipation. [3]
  • Anti-Inflammatory—Cinnamon is a great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredient, especially during fall winter months. The combination of cinnamon and pumpkin in this pumpkin smoothie bowl adds another dimension that you don’t find in most smoothie recipes. [4]
  • Lower Blood Sugar—Bananas are a great source of potassium, a mineral that has shown to help lower blood sugar. One study showed females as being more susceptible to lower intake of potassium than males. Another reason for you to whip up this pumpkin pie smoothie! [5]

How To Make A Pumpkin Smoothie Bowl

 

The start of any great smoothie, especially this pumpkin pie smoothie, is a powerful blender. It could mean the difference between a thick smoothie bowl and a watered down smoothie.

Load up your blender with all of the ingredients, except for the granola, if using. This includes frozen bananas (freezing them helps make your pumpkin smoothie THICK), pumpkin purée, medjool dates (don’t forget to remove the pits!), Super Youth collagen (Unflavored or Chocolate Cake), almond butter, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and milk of choice (my vote is almond!). Make sure you’re using pumpkin PURÉE, and not pumpkin pie filling or pumpkin extract. This can also be substituted for unsalted, roasted pumpkin you make at home. With pumpkin being the star of this pumpkin smoothie bowl, you want to make sure you get this ingredient right!

Once your pumpkin smoothie is just blended (you don’t want to over blend), add it to a bowl to make it a pumpkin smoothie bowl, and top with granola if you’re feeling fancy! Dig in and enjoy, knowing you just made yourself the tastiest nutrient-packed fall treat yet!
