This pumpkin coconut paleo smoothie recipe is perfect for fall! A Paleo smoothie recipe using pumpkin will let me enjoy the pumpkin taste that everyone enjoys at the holidays without any of the non-Paleo ingredients.
Pumpkin Coconut Paleo Smoothie Recipe
This Paleo smoothie recipe makes a wonderful treat for dessert or even a delicious breakfast one morning. It is not overly sweet but the banana and pumpkin do combine well with a delicious taste. If you are looking for a slightly sweeter taste, you can add a packet of stevia.
What is the best smoothie blender?
The Smoothie Smart blender was made specifically for smoothies. I don’t know about you, most of the time that is the only thing that I use my blender for. The Smoothie Smart Blender makes perfect smoothies every time. There are no food pieces that haven’t been incorporated into the smoothie.
The auto smoothie button is a 45-second cycle that makes the perfect smoothie every time. The Smoothie Smart blender is specifically designed to pull the ingredients down into the blades, so there is no need to stop and stir the mixture. Even better, at the end of the cycle, it shuts itself off automatically.
No more trying to figure out when the smoothie has blended enough. The patented no-mess spout directs contents into the cup instead of dripping down the sides of the jar or all over the kitchen counter. For easy cleanup afterward, any stickiness on its smooth touchpad is quickly wiped away and the cord stores neatly out of sight.
Some smoothies, I make more than one serving at a time because the kids enjoy them as well. Sometimes, the kids aren’t home or they aren’t interested in some of the healthier smoothies I make. When that happens, The Single Serve blender with travel lid is the perfect solution. The Single Serve blender makes one smoothie at a time. The jar is a single-serve travel cup so I can take it on the go with me. I can blend and drink from the same jar plus it fits in most car cup holders.
Is this paleo pumpkin smoothie vegan?
Yes, this is also a vegan recipe. It contains no animal products since it uses coconut milk. You can enjoy it on a gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, paleo, and primal diet. This is not the best smoothie for weight loss since it uses full-fat coconut milk and almond butter. If you want a pumpkin smoothie you can enjoy while watching your weight, try this one.
Green pumpkin smoothie
I know that green smoothies are all the rage right now. And, they are definitely a healthy smoothie option. So, if you want to make this a green pumpkin smoothie, you can toss in a handful of fresh baby spinach leaves as you’re processing the rest of the ingredients.
Pumpkin banana smoothie
I love banana smoothies so I experimented with adding in half a banana and it tastes fantastic. You might want to add a bit more coconut milk to the mixture if it is too thick. But the combination really is delicious!
Can I add protein powder?
You bet! You can make this a pumpkin protein smoothie by simply adding a scoop of your favorite protein powder. It may or may not continue to be paleo depending on the variety of protein powder that you purchase. But, it will have a higher protein count that way. Try experimenting with different flavors of protein powder. Or, you can stick with the classic vanilla or French vanilla.
Keto pumpkin smoothie recipe
Since keto is very popular right now, you might be wondering if you can enjoy this on the keto diet. Bananas contain a higher amount of carbs than are allowed typically on the keto diet. So, this probably isn’t the best choice for you if you are trying to stay in ketosis. You can try substituting the banana with avocado and see how that works.
If you enjoyed this easy, healthy pumpkin pie smoothie, you may enjoy this strawberry smoothie recipe or this avocado pineapple smoothie. Having a smoothie for breakfast is a wonderful way to ensure you don’t stop by your favorite fast-food restaurant for a donut or snack on those pastries at work.
