Looking for an easy way to enjoy the best flavors of fall? This Keto Pumpkin Smoothie is perfect! It takes just 5 minutes to make, making it a quick and easy breakfast or snack to enjoy throughout the season.
Fall is my favorite time of year.
The leaves start changing color, the weather starts to cool down, and, best of all, pumpkin season arrives! I love cooking and baking with pumpkin, so I'm always looking for new recipes to try.
This keto pumpkin smoothie has quickly become one of my favorites.
It's perfect for a quick breakfast or snack, and it's really satisfying.
Give it a try yourself and see how you like it!
- Greek Yogurt: Make sure you use plain, unsweetened full-fat Greek yogurt to keep this smoothie low carb and keto.
- Pumpkin Puree: This adds a delicious pumpkin flavor. Make sure you use pure pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling.
- Heavy Whipping Cream or Almond Milk: The heavy cream will make the smoothie richer and thicker, while the almond milk will keep it light and refreshing.
- Maple Syrup Substitute or Sweetener of Choice: I use a maple syrup substitute to sweeten the smoothie without adding extra carbs, but feel free to use your preferred sugar-free sweetener. Liquid stevia is a great option.
- Peanut Butter or Almond Butter: This adds a delicious nutty flavor. Use your favorite nut butter, or omit it if you have allergies.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice: This adds a touch of warmth and fall flavor. If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, you could use cinnamon. Don’t forget to sprinkle some on top!
- Ice: For a refreshing, icy texture.
- You can add in some collagen powder or keto protein powder for an extra boost of protein.
- For a little crunch, top the smoothie with chopped nuts, chia seeds, or pumpkin seeds.
- To make this low carb pumpkin spice smoothie vegan, use a plant-based yogurt and milk alternative. Canned coconut milk makes this extra rich and creamy while staying dairy free.
- A teaspoon of vanilla extract, nutmeg, or even minced fresh ginger adds a nice pop of flavor.
- Add two tablespoons of softened full-fat cream cheese for a keto pumpkin cheesecake smoothie.
