Tips & Tricks

  • If you want to ensure a super smooth smoothie, blend your oats to a fine powder before adding any other ingredients then remove the ground oats from the blender before adding your milk and ice.
  • Add the liquid (almond milk) to the blender first. Blenders will work more efficiently when the liquid is added first.
  • Use a high-power blender to break down the ice cubes.
  • This healthy pumpkin smoothie recipe is a great way to use up leftover pumpkin purée!

Recipe Substitutions

Pumpkin Pie Spice
Use 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg, ¼ teaspoon ground ginger, 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves, and a 1/8 teaspoon allspice in place of the pumpkin pie spice

Vanilla Greek Yogurt
Plain Greek Yogurt can be used instead of Vanilla. I prefer vanilla for the little flavor boost and the added sweetness. Forager Project Cashewmilk Yogurt is a great dairy free alternative.

Pure Maple Syrup
Honey or your sweetener of choice can be used in place of pure maple syrup.

Extra Protein
Add a scoop of protein powder for a higher protein smoothie. (Adds additional calories.)

  1. This is really delicious and filling, thank you! I can’t do cows milk so I used vanilla sheep’s milk yogurt. I also added a tablespoon of hemp seeds and 2 scoops vanilla protein powder. I’ve enjoyed this 5 times since you posted and will many more times! 😋
