Pumpkin Pie In A Glass
If you’re a fan of decadent shakes like the Simply Chocolate Shake then you’ll love this one! Full of fiber thanks to the pumpkin and all the great flavor of pie (with crunchy toppings of course!) and this shake becomes absolutely perfect.
Pumpkin seems to be a nationwide thing during fall and I felt left out not contributing ;).
The truth is.. I actually don’t like pumpkin all that much GASP. I know right? I’m pretty sure this is almost a sin. I have come to learn that I like pumpkin pie spice far more than the actual pumpkin. And truthfully, pumpkin pie is just downright odd to me. I think it’s the texture?
Anyways, I digress.
And while I may not like pumpkin, I love this shake. Seriously.
You may be wondering how that’s possible since I just announced that I dislike pumpkin! But I do. This shake is beyond tasty, super creamy and can be modified depending on your goals (light or not).
That said, sometimes, instead of a shake, I make mine into a smoothie/ice cream bowl! I love this option if time permits and add on additional toppings to make it extra special. It’s really just dessert ?
So yea, I love this shake.

Ingredients in the Decadent Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
Pumpkin Pie In A Glass
A delicious pumpkin smoothie that tastes just like pie! Perfect as an indulgence or a post workout snack.
- Yield: 1 serving
- 1/2c canned pumpkin
- 1tsp cinnamon
- 1/2tsp nutmeg
- dash of pumpkin pie spice to your liking
- 1/4c coconut milk (+ more for drizzle if you’re fancy)
- Almond milk
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 2tbs ground flaxseed
- 2tbs maple syrup (+more for drizzle!)
Place all ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth. Top with pecans, more maple syrup and coconut if you like!
Tip: As I said I truly enjoy this shake… and that means that I top my shake (or smoothie bowl!) with pecan pieces, shredded coconut and more maple syrup. I get beyond excited about this. If you want a less calorie dense option: omit the coconut milk, maple syrup and any toppings.
If you dislike pumpkin…use sweet potato! I do this a lot too depending on what’s in the fridge. It is still beyond tasty and super creamy… just make sure to cook it first!
