It may not look like it, but this smoothie tastes like pumpkin pie.

While I’m happy to embrace the bright green color, feel free to hide this smoothie in a sealed container if you need to deceive a picky eater. The flavor is sure to please any pumpkin pie lovers!

O WOW!!! I can’t wait to make this, maybe this afternoon!!!!

Cindy

I tried something similar to this thinking it would taste good with the pumpkin but it was so so. Can’t wait to try this at lunch – I have all the ingredients – yeah! I think the dates added to this will make the difference. Thanks Megan! Continue enjoying your little one! Hope things are going well.

Shawn

This looks great, but I’m allergic to avocados 🙁 Is there a substitute??

    Lisa

    I used 1/4 cup soaked raw cashews. Do creamy and delicious!

Abbi*tarian

This is clever! Thanks for sharing!

Alia Vo

Yum – ‘Nuff said!

Alexandra @ Made to Glow

This looks lovely. I just roasted and pureed a pumpkin last night and have spinach in the fridge. Perfect timing! Thanks for sharing!

Brittany @ Delights and Delectables

YUM!! Love the addition of the avocado!

Jenifer

Looks AWESOME! I may just have to roast up a pumpkin tonight to give this one a try! 🙂

Hali

I just bought canned pumpkin and I now know what I am going to make first!! THANKS!

Nicole

Hi, thanks for the delicious looking recipe. I have all the ingredients except for dates, so if I wanted to make this today could I substitute other dried fruit like plums or raisins? Thanks

Rebecca

I just made this and it was absolutely delicious! Unfortunately, I couldn’t get it past my ultra-picky kids though (even in opaque cups with lids and straws). I will definitely make this again for myself though:-).

Teresa

Hi – do you know of any substitute sweeteners I can use for the Medjool dates? Sadly, I have none on hand. Thx!

Lauren @ Fun, Fit and Fabulous!

Oh my sweet gracious this looks amazing!! I have been putting pumpkin puree in my smoothie lately too, but this recipe takes it to the next level!!! I can’t wait to try it!!

Carrie

I just made this and it is super yummy! It really does resemble liquid pumpkin pie. I only had baby kale mix on hand so I did taste a tiny bit I the chard but can’t wait to try it again with just spinach.

Thanks M!!

Tara Bertone

I just made this and LOVE it. I love pumpkin pie! However, my significant other is a pecan pie man. Do you have a recipe for a smoothie as good as this that tastes like pecan pie?

Theresa

Yummy even without dates! I made it with stevia and a little protein powder. Very good!

Gena

I’ve been making a smoothie like this all autumn long! SO good.

Teresa

Glad to hear this is tasty even without the dates. I’m going to try it with stevia. Thx Theresa!

Janet

Finally tried this today…it’s delicious! I didn’t have avocado, but it was still great. Thanks.

Jennifer

Had no almond milk on hand, so threw in a couple handfuls of raw cashews with the water. Did the trick for the missing creaminess. Also, had no spinach, so picked fresh dandelion greens, chard & celery leaves from our garden. Yum! Even my three year old likes it!

Sabrina

I always have avocado…but, today I didn’t so, I made this with half a frozen banana instead and I didnt have spinach so I threw in kale. I had deglet dates instead… so basically this recipe inspired me to put greens and pumpkin in a smoothie together with some spices. 😉 It was tasty. My 20 month old fussed and cried when his straw cup ran out of smoothie. For that reason alone I’d make another…cuz he downed kale and other goodies. 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration…and I just discovered your blog and I’m all over it right now! Great job!!

Jane

Just drank one. Didn’t have an avocado, still very smooth and yummy. Thanks!

Living Outside of the Box

Yum! I didn’t have any avocado…but it was good, regardless!

Cassie

This looks so similar to the one I make, except I use a banana. I STILL haven’t used an avocado in my smoothies… I need to ASAP.

Migraines are tricky in that there are different triggers for each person. First, be sure that there are not particular foods you are eating that spark the pain (dairy, wheat, citrus, caffeine, artificial sweeteners, chocolate, tannins in red wine, cheese, and nightshade veggies are a few examples of common culprits). Some nutrients, such as magnesium, calcium, and fiber can be used to relieve migraine symptoms by restoring the natural balance of brain chemistry. Some good ingredients to throw in your NutriBlast include beets, leafy greens, ginger, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds/flaxmeal, and some blackberries and/or blueberries. Top it with some calcium-rich almond milk to the MAX LINE and blast for migraine relief! Be sure to clear any alternative treatments with your doctor before beginning.

Loved this! I’ve been stalking your site for a while and everything you suggests is great. I am doing dairy,grain,soy,sugar free so many recipes work for me. I altered this by using vanilla stevia instead of vanilla and dates. I didn’t have spinach so i used my green powder. I miss my starbucks pumpkin lattes so this is a treat.

Natalia

Yummy and healthy. I use chia seeds instead of the avacado and honey/agave instead of the dates. Delish!

Jennifer M.

I just made this smoothie, and it tastes SOOOO good! I love the addition of avocado– I would have never thought of that! I couldn’t taste it, and it made this shake a filling breakfast for me before work.

V. McHugh

I don’t usually like to combine my fruits and veggies but this looks very good to me. I might even add some Fage greek yogurt to tighten it up and make a dessert of this.

Jennifer

Really yummy!! I had to make it with kale as that was all I had on hand. So good! I think this is going to become my new go-to smoothie for Fall.

Ritu Anand

I love this recipe. It is absolutely delicious! I love your blog. Thank you for sharing your delicious, healthy recipes with us! I modified this by adding slightly more spice than the original recipe calls for 🙂

Erin L

Delicious. A family favourite when you’re craving some liquid pumpkin pie!

kira

Wonderful! Thank you for this great recipe!

Marcella

This looks delicious! Do the dates mean it’s not “properly combined”? Thank you!
