What ingredients are in a pumpkin pie smoothie bowl?
- Pumpkin: Pumpkin puree, also known as canned pumpkin, is an essential ingredient for this pumpkin smoothie bowl. You can also use cooked (and cooled) pumpkin.
- Banana: Frozen bananas provide a thick, creamy consistency. They're also rich in vitamins and minerals such as potassium, magnesium, vitamin B6, and vitamin C.
- Almond butter: I suggest using your favorite creamy almond butter, but peanut or cashew butter works too. If you need a nut-free option, use sunflower seed butter instead.
- Medjool dates: Medjool dates provide a natural sweetness without the need for added sugar.
- Oat milk: Oat milk is the perfect liquid for this smoothie. It's sweet, creamy, and a bit thicker than other plant-based milks. If you don't have oat milk, you can swap it with another liquid like almond milk or cashew milk.
- Vanilla: Just a dash makes all the difference for dessert-style smoothies, like this one!
- Fall spices: Warm fall spices, including cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice, help to give this breakfast bowl its pumpkin pie flavor.

The best toppings for this fall breakfast smoothie
A smoothie bowl isn't complete without the toppings. To fit with the pumpkin pie theme, I suggest topping your bowl with ingredients commonly found in fall recipes. There are a variety of options to choose from, including:
- Almond butter
- Pumpkin seeds
- Crushed pecans or walnuts
- Coconut flakes
- Chopped medjool dates
- Hemp seeds or chia seeds
- Sliced banana
- Chocolate chips or cacao nibs
Use frozen ripe bananas. Ripe bananas contain a yellow peel with brown spots all over it. At peak ripeness, they provide a deliciously sweet flavor. Once the bananas have ripened, remove the peels and place the bananas in a sealed container/bag inside the freezer. You can freeze several bananas at once, and they will last for up to 3 months. If you enjoy smoothie bowls often, I recommend keeping a batch inside the freezer at all times. They will be ready to go whenever it's smoothie time.
Pit the medjool dates. Don't forget to remove the pits from your medjool dates before blending the ingredients.
For a nut-free alternative: Swap the almond butter out and use sunflower seed butter instead.
