Ingredients For Vegan Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Pumpkin pie smoothie:

  • Pumpkin puree – Make sure that what you have is canned pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling! 
  • Soft tofu – This protein powerhouse makes our smoothie smooth and creamy. And don’t worry; it doesn’t have a strong tofu flavor compared to its firmer cousins. 
  • Soy milk – You can use any non-dairy milk of choice, but I figured since we already used tofu, we might as well go with soy milk. 
  • Apple cider – Pumpkin and apple cider? If this isn’t the ultimate fall smoothie, then I don’t know what is!  
  • Pumpkin spice syrup – What better sweetener to get the perfect pumpkin pie flavor in our smoothie than pumpkin spice syrup? 
  • Ground cinnamon – It’s not pumpkin pie without this cozy spice!
  • Ground ginger – This spice gives the pumpkin smoothie a more refined flavor. 
  • Vegan graham crackers – This fills the role of the pie crust in our sippable pumpkin pie. 
  • Vanilla bean paste – Complements the delicious pumpkin pie flavor without overpowering the warm spices. 

Whipped coconut cream topping:

  • Full-fat coconut milk – Read our tips below on how to turn this into the perfect whipping coconut cream. 
  • Agave nectar – Adds extra sweetness to our whipped topping without the artificial taste of some sweeteners. 
  • Ground cinnamon – We’ll also spice up our whipped cream with cinnamon. 
  • Ground ginger – Ginger brightens the natural sweetness of coconut cream; it’s definitely a must-try coconut combination!
  • Vegan graham cracker crumbs – We’ll also use graham cracker crumbs as garnish.

Tools Needed To Prepare Vegan Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

  • Blender for combining the ingredients
  • Strainer for separating the liquid content of the coconut milk
  • Handheld mixer for whipping the coconut cream

Ingredient Additions & Substitutions For Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Soy substitutes

One of my favorite treats since childhood is “taho.” It’s soft tofu with brown sugar syrup and tapioca pearls, so I don’t find it odd to enjoy tofu in sweet treats.

However, I know some people only like tofu in savory dishes or can’t tolerate soy products in general. 

Don’t fret; you can still make this vegan pumpkin pie smoothie without missing out on flavor and creaminess by swapping soft tofu with Greek yogurt and using almond milk instead of soy milk. 

Flax seeds

Upgrade this autumn smoothie with familiar add-ins we enjoy in other smoothie recipes. Try flax seeds, and you might love the taste and texture they add to this delicious pumpkin drink. 

Almond butter

Nut butter will also be amazing for this pumpkin pie spice smoothie. If you already used almond milk, the creamy, nutty almond butter will fit right into the blend. ?

Tips About Making Pumpkin Pie Spice Smoothie

  • You can simply drain the liquid off the coconut milk to get the thick cream for the smoothie’s whipped topping. Alternatively, if you chill the coconut milk overnight, you can just skim off the cream at the top. 
  • It’s up to you if you want to use an electric mixer or manually whip the coconut cream topping. But if you’ll whisk it, you’ll get the perfect consistency much easier if your coconut cream is super cold. 
  • Instead of using store-bought syrup, why not make your own? Our pumpkin spice syrup uses real pumpkin puree, so you know it’s delicious and full of sweet pumpkin flavor down to the last drop. 

How To Store Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Like other smoothie recipes, I recommend just making yourself a fresh glass of pumpkin smoothie instead of blending a big batch for storage in the fridge or freezer.

The texture and flavor of stored leftover pumpkin pie smoothie might not be as satisfactory compared to drinking it immediately. 

How long does coconut whipping cream last in the fridge?

What about the whipped coconut cream topping? Can you make it in advance?

It can keep between 3 to 5 days in the fridge. The only drawback is you might lose the fluffy consistency of your whipped topping, so you’ll need to whisk it again.

Can You Add Banana to This Recipe?
