Pumpkin Spice Latte Smoothie
Are you tired of pumpkin-everything-everywhere-all-the-time yet? I’m not, not yet anyways! The pumpkin love continues with a creamy, vegan pumpkin spice latte smoothie you can whip up in just a minute to get your pumpkin spice fix anytime you need it. This delicious pumpkin smoothie is made with coffee, almond milk, frozen banana, plant-based vanilla protein powder, pumpkin puree, vanilla and spices for a healthy and frozen twist on a pumpkin spice latte.
Quick and Easy Caramel Sauce
I’ve made this smoothie with a couple different caramel-inspired sauces to drizzle on top. To make sweet, delicious, healthy sauces, I like to mix a nut butter or tahini with either maples syrup, dates or coconut sugar and then thin it out with a bit of water. You can also you coconut milk for an even creamier sauce with more flavour.
These sauces are also awesome on pancakes, overnight oats, chia seed pudding, banana ice cream or sweet potato breakfast bowls.
Here are a couple amazing combos you can try:
- 1 tbsp tahini + 1 tsp coconut sugar, stir in a bit of water or coconut milk, mixing vigorusly until you can drizzle it
- 1 tbsp cashew butter + a few small, pitted fresh dates + a pinch of sea salt, soak dates in a bit of hot water, strain then blend everything together, adding a bit of water or coconut milk to reach desired consistency
- 1 tbsp almond butter + 1 tbsp pure maple syrup + a pinch of sea salt, stir in a bit of water or coconut milk, mixing vigorously until you can drizzle it
Any and all of these combos are amazing! Try almond butter and dates or dates and and tahini, you really can’t go wrong. They will take your creations to the next level!
All you need to make this pumpkin spice latte smoothie is: 1 frozen banana, pumpkin puree, brewed coffee, plant-based vanilla protein, almond milk and some spices. I usually toss in a couple dates for some extra sweetness.
For even more creamy texture, you can freeze the pumpkin puree in silicone ice cube trays before use. Using frozen pumpkin in addition to frozen banana gives this smoothie an insanely delicious, soft-serve-esque texture.
Even better, freeze the coffee into coffee ice cubes and use those for even more creamy, frozen goodness!
Enjoy this smoothie to power up before a morning workout, to recover after a hard training session or just relaxing at home on a crisp fall morning.

I use this Farmers Market 100% Organic Pumpkin Puree for all my pumpkin recipes. I find it has the best flavour, it’s slightly sweet and nice and creamy.Print

I make smoothies almost every single day, and this is absolutely the best one I’ve made yet! Starbucks doesn’t even come close 🙂
Mmm, totally agree! So addictive. So glad you’re enjoying it!
Very good write-up. I certainly love this website. Thanks!
This is my favorite time of the year and pumpkin anything is my favorite. I officially had my first pumpkin spiced Latte last week to kick off the BER months! So you see why I clicked on your blog! Thank you for this!
Me too – I love pumpkin so much! Except I actually don’t like real pumpkin spice lattes, haha..too sweet for me. 😉 Thanks for your comment!
I love it when food looks so much worse for you than it really is. This looks amazing!
This sounds like the perfect fall sip. Running out for the supplies now:)
Oh this sounds like dessert in a jar! Big nom xo
OMG! This is easily the most delicious smoothie I’ve ever seen. I’m off to the kitchen straight after I finish this to make it. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Mari x
PUMPKIN and COFFEE…lady you are speaking my language! Pinned!
This looks really good. I have two pumpkins sitting in my window sill waiting to be used up.
Do you think I could skip the protein powder? Would it be too runny then.
Could you post the macros on this? With and without the syrup?
I’m sorry, Stevie. I’m not sure what they would be. You should be able to calculate it with one of those apps like My Fitness Pal. Thanks!
I so cannot wait to try this!! Thanks!!
I fully support pumpkin all things pumpkin, all the time. 🙂 And I definitely support coffee in my smoothies! Awesome idea!
This is such a great idea. I love the photo! I can’t get enough of pumpkin recipes right now so I’ll be looking forward to those pumpkin protein bars. The fall colours in Muskoka Ontario have been amazing this year, I love the season but I’m sad to see summer go. Thanks for sharing!
Yum perfect recovery drink! I don’t think I’ll be sick of pumpkin recipes for awhile. It won’t be long before its all things sugar cookies and chocolate for the holidays! Thanks for sharing.
