Paleo Pumpkin Smoothie Mariel Lewis November 16, 2012 American, Breakfast, Dairy Free, Fall, For the Fit, Gluten Free, Paleo, Paleo-Vegan, Smoothies, Soy Free, Thanksgiving, Treats, Vegan, Vegetarian 14 Comments I adore all things pumpkin and all things sweet during the fall. When I combine the two, it feels like my mouth is having a party. I find so much comfort in knowing cold and gloomy weather can be dealt with a simple treat. That’s all it takes for me, a yummy food item to take my mind off of a cruel Mother Nature move. They call comfort foods “comfort” for a reason, right? And you know what else I find great? To be able to prepare these treats on my own, on the spot, without having the need to go out and buy them at the nearest coffee shop or restaurant. I love being able to quickly put things together, with ingredients readily available. Here is a tasty Paleo Pumpkin Smoothie recipe for you, easy to make and, well…comfort-full 😉 Get the full recipe here! 14 Responses Bonnie November 17, 2012 I am sitting here and Im starving (what else is new? 😉 ) and it’s also raining here, so you better believe I am about to whip this up RIGHT NOW! Mariel Lewis November 17, 2012 Haha! I love it! Brett Alexander January 2, 2013 What a wonderful recipe! I’m presuming you could use raw or cooked pumpkin? Mariel Lewis January 2, 2013 Hi Brett! Thanks so much. You could use either, but for this recipe I recommend raw pumpkin Jennifer Wilson January 5, 2013 Awesome! Pumpkin pie in a cup! I also made a latte (hot drink) version of this. I added strong coffee, a room temp banana, and omitted the ice. Then I blended everything on the “hot soup” setting! Wah-lah! I used canned, organic pumpkin. Where do I find raw pumpkin? Mariel Lewis January 6, 2013 Great tip Jennifer! I’ll have to give that a try, sounds awesome! I actually used pure pumpkin too…for some reason I typed “raw” pumpkin, when I meant “pure” pumpkin 😉 – just corrected the typo in the ingredient list 😉 Laura February 14, 2013 I’m still confused about the pumpkin. Raw pumpkin is pure pumpkin. Do you use cooked pumpkin? From the colour of your smoothie, I am guessing you used canned pumpkin. I’m not sure raw would give a nice smooth texture . . . Mariel Lewis February 14, 2013 I use raw (canned). Dave February 24, 2013 This is fantastic! I have been looking for a good pumpkin smoothie — I stocked up on pure pumpkin after thanksgiving and was waiting for the perfect recipe to use our stash. I didn’t have the ginger, nutmeg, ground cloves, or allspice. I replaced the missing flavor with a teaspoon of coconut extract and a half scoop of chocolate whey protein powder. So delicious! Mariel Lewis February 24, 2013 Hi Dave! Thanks for the comment. That sounds delish…glad you now know what to do with your pumpkin ;). Emily October 22, 2013 Just made this, and it is delicious! My 2 year old and I shared a glass Thanks for the recipe! Mariel Lewis November 2, 2013 Hi Emily! Aww, that’s so cute. Glad you two shared this little one. Its a really healthy recipe! Genie May 22, 2014 Soooooo good! New Paleoite here just loving the way I feel eating better foods. Not missing grains as much as I expected thanks to awesome blogs like yours!
