You don’t need a specific reason or season to enjoy a fabulous pumpkin smoothie. Pumpkin is an extremely rich source of alpha-carotene, a carotenoid that converts to retinol, a type of vitamin A, which can boost immune health and promote healthy vision.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
I don't know about you, but when the summertime rolls around, I crave a lot of cold foods. Salads, gazpachos, fruit &mdash and my all-time favorite &mdash cold breakfast smoothies. Even if it is Summer, I still crave pumpkin and this smoothie fits the bill.
Kayla and I have been trying really hard to clean up our diet. Because of that, we have been looking for more opportunities to add good nutritional things to our food choices, and that is how we learned about Naked Nutrition.
The thing that we are loving most about Naked Nutrition is that their products have minimal ingredients. Most of them have 3 or less &mdash which is exactly what we are looking for when it comes to products like these.

Creamy Pumpkin Pie Smoothie for Two + An Advertising Update
Another weekend is upon us! You know what that means – kicking back, unwinding from a busy back-to-school week, and making this creamy pumpkin pie smoothie to reward all your hard efforts. Whoever said you shouldn’t reward yourself with food really needs to try this smoothie. Seriously!
Thanks to adding soaked rolled oats and chia seeds, this smoothie is extra thick and has a bit more staying power than most. I think it’s my best pumpkin smoothie to date! Enjoy it for a snack, breakfast, or even dessert. If it’s still hot where you are like it is here, you might find yourself cooling off with this smoothie outside. Extra ice, is a must. Oh, and if you are feeling crazy top it all off with some homemade Coconut Whipped Cream – I know you’ve been waiting for the perfect recipe!
The best part is this recipe makes 4 CUPS worth (yes!), so if you are feeling generous you can share it with a loved one. Or if you are lucky and have a husband who doesn’t like pumpkin, you get it all to yourself. Double yes. I have one of these glasses wrapped up in the back of the fridge for later. [Later probably meaning, as soon as I hit publish on this post…]

- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger

3. Add maple syrup to taste. I found 1.5 tbsp was perfect for me.
4. Serve with Coconut Whipped Cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top!
Advertising Update :
I want to take a moment today to fill you in on an advertising change that happened on my site as of Sept. 1st. I’m now with Federated Media in a non-exclusive agreement meaning that I can host my own advertising as well as ad campaigns from FM and other networks, such as AdSense. There have been some kinks to iron out over the past few days (to say the least), so I thought I’d fill you in on what’s going on.
I have committed myself to providing meat and dairy-free advertising on Oh She Glows. This is an ethical choice that fits with my vegan lifestyle and vision for the blog. I can’t promise the ads will always be perfect, but I’m going to do the best that I can to keep blatant meat and dairy ads off the site.
Thankfully this was agreed upon with my advertiser before we went live on Sept 1st, but on Wednesday I found out a meat ad was in fact running on my site in the US. Many of the ad campaigns are only shown on U.S. IP addresses, so I had no idea this was going on. I shut down all of my ads for a few hours until they were removed. This is certainly not the first time that meat and dairy ads have appeared without my knowledge. With my previous advertiser, I had no control over which ads were displayed. I ended up emailing them from time-to-time to ask for removal of animal/dairy ads or specific ads which did not fit with my vision for the site. However, I could only do so if my US readers made me aware they were running. It was by no means a good system.
The good news is I now have my FM ad campaigns set to “manual approval” so nothing should run without my approval. I’ve already declined several meat and dairy ad campaigns over the past few days, so things should be looking better around here. I’m also trying to keep the Google Ads non-offensive. I’ve blocked many categories so far including weight loss gimmicks, diet pill, and wrinkle cream ads. Keep in mind, ads can slide through under vague categories so they may pop up from time to time.
I want to encourage you to contact us if you see any ad that is concerning or offensive. Send to: adinquiries [at] ohsheglows [dot] com along with a screenshot and URL of the ad. Like I said, we can’t catch everything so your help is appreciated.
Selling ads to animal-friendly companies:
I can now sell ads for my site. My goal is to advertise animal-friendly businesses supporting the vegan lifestyle. There are so many amazing companies out there (and growing every day!) and I would love to feature them on the blog. If you know of any businesses, large or small, that may be interested in advertising on OSG, please let us know: adinquires [at] ohsheglows [dot] com You know what they say – you have to put it out in the universe for it to happen. It often feels like an uphill battle when double whopper ads are the norm, but I’m confident that we can make progress in this area.
Savor the flavors of fall in this heavenly smoothie. It tastes like decadence but contains only healing foods that will nourish and rejuvenate the body. This is a smoothie that the whole family will love.
Pumpkin is loaded with nutrients that our livers can easily store. High in carotenoids that protect liver cells from damage, the glucose in pumpkin can stabilize the liver, allowing blood sugar to stabilize overall in the body. Pumpkin is a rich source of B-vitamins such as niacin, thiamin, and pantothenic acid and minerals like calcium, potassium, and phosphorus. It is an excellent food for aiding weight loss and for reducing cholesterol.
The high amount of phytonutrients in pumpkin have been shown to help prevent the risk of cancers, particularly mouth, lung, and colon cancer. It also contains immune-boosting properties which can help the body stay strong and ward off common colds and flus that may be going around. Pumpkin is excellent way to replenish and restore the body after a workout as it is high in potassium which helps to restore the body&rsquos balance of electrolytes after exercise and keeps muscles functioning at their best.
Bananas provide quick fuel to the liver and wakes up sleepy cells, increasing their ingenuity and work output. Bananas also soothe the linings of the intestinal tract and the nerves attached to the intestinal tract. Contrary to popular belief, bananas are one of the most antibacterial, anti-yeast, antifungal foods. A great food to combine with other nutrient-rich foods or to take with supplements, because they improve the liver&rsquos ability to absorb nutrients.

Skinny Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
After hauling all of our furniture and hundreds of heavy boxes into our storage unit, my guy and I said good-bye to our tiny place and turned in the house keys to the rental agency. Because he immediately had to fly out for a business trip—and apartment hunting is no fun alone—I drove south to visit my parents for a few days until he returned.
Once I lugged 17 more boxes of baking ingredients, cake pans, and photography equipment into my childhood bedroom (food bloggers never stop working!), I collapsed onto the soft mattress and slept soundly until morning.
When I awoke, my legs ached for a run, so I pulled on shorts, laced up my shoes, and headed out the front door… Where a crisp and chilly overcast morning greeted me. Nothing like the blazing hot 105° weather 80 miles north in our town! After rubbing my palms together to get blood flowing into my fingertips again, I took off down the street, constantly thinking about baking fall pumpkin-y treats while I pounded my way around half the town.
But by the time I spotted my parents’ driveway over an hour later, the sun had started peeking out between the clouds. After I showered and snacked on a banana, warm summery weather had completely replaced the fall fog… And suddenly pumpkin muffins and cookies stopped sounding so appealing.
Yet since September marks the unofficial start to pumpkin season in my mind, I still wanted to make something with it! After a little bit of creative thinking and a tiny bit of tinkering, I came up with this…
A Skinny Pumpkin Pie Smoothie ! Full of spices and sweet fall flavor, it literally tastes like the traditional Thanksgiving dessert in a glass. But with its cold and creamy texture, it’s much more refreshing than that heavy slice of pie! Made with just a few simple ingredients, this low-calorie smoothie is gluten free, vegan, and clean-eating too—the perfect guilt-free drink!
This easy smoothie starts with my favorite canned vegetable: pumpkin . We want the regular pumpkin purée, not the pie filling. The pie filling contains spices and lots of added sugar. Although it’s an easy shortcut when strapped for time on Thanksgiving, it’s not what we want for these healthy smoothies!
By using regular pumpkin purée, you get to decide how much sweetener and spice you add! I like to mix the pumpkin, milk, Truvia, and spices together in a bowl before pouring it into the blender. Some days I’m on a huge cinnamon kick others, not so much. Taste as you go, and remember… The ice will dilute the spices , so it’s better to err on the side of just barely too much!
Once you find the perfect balance, just add that mixture to the blender along with the ice, and pulse until it’s smooth. My parents own a blender from the Stone Age, so I looked like a clown making mine, constantly bending down to peer at the base where the blades were hidden and stopped it every 15 seconds to move around the ice with one of my 13 spatulas.
But when I eventually finished, I offered my mom a taste of this Skinny Pumpkin Pie Smoothie . As soon as she swallowed, she exclaimed, “This is SO good!! It literally tastes like pumpkin pie!” before polishing off half of the smoothie.
It was totally worth sharing to see her so excited… Especially since I’m positive we’ll make lots more! ♥
Member Ratings For This Recipe
i did a little makeover to this one and really liked the results. i used plain yogurt instead of vanilla, pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon, and i omitted the ice (personal preference). i also added a scoop of vanilla whey protein powder. it was super tasty. i will definitely make it again! - 11/9/11
Weird. When I read the recipe, I don't see anything about an apple. - 9/24/13WLDWCNWMN
I added a scoop of protein powder and benefiber and nutmeg and ginger and allspice and omitted the apple for 1/4 cup light apple juice. It tasted like pumpkin pie. - 6/4/11
I was able to drink it but I felt the apple was a little over powering. I was hoping for a sweet pumpkin pie flavor and got more of an applesauce flavored with pumpkin thing. I wouldn't make this one again. If I did I would leave out the apple and add in more banana. - 1/28/11
I made it without the Apple and no ice. Used frozen bsnana and greek yogurt. Added whey powder and fresh ground flaxseed. Very good. - 11/22/11
