Equipment Needed

Smoothie Making Tools
Smoothie Making Tools

A standard blender is all that is required to make this keto smoothie. If you are making it for just one person, we recommend using any one of the many available NutriBullet blenders as they are quick to set up and very easy to clean. 

If you are making this recipe for more than one person, we recommend a higher-end Vitamix blender that can process larger loads more efficiently.

For overnight storage, we recommend using a glass or BPA-free airtight container with a resealable lid.


How To Make This Smoothie

The Keto Pumpkin Spice smoothie is very easy to make:

  • Step 1: Place almond milk, pumpkin puree, almond butter, vanilla protein powder, pumpkin pie spice, Stevia, and ice into a blender and secure the lid.
  • Step 2: Start the blender on its lowest speed and steadily ramp up to its highest speed. This will reduce wear and tear on the motor and blades, facilitate a more consistent blend, and help prevent food splatter onto the lid and sides.
  • Step 3: Blend for approximately 30 seconds or until a smooth consistency is achieved.
  • Step 4: Pour into a glass for immediate refreshment or place in the refrigerator in an airtight container to enjoy later.

Recipe Tips And Substitutions

Soy milk or coconut milk can be substituted for the almond milk and still keep this delicious smoothie keto-friendly.

Regular peanut butter or cashew butter can be substituted for the almond butter without significantly changing the flavor or the keto profile.

Add a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg for a little extra spice.

Smoothie Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use fresh pumpkin instead of canned pumpkin puree in a Keto Pumpkin Spice Smoothie?

Yes, you can use fresh pumpkin instead of canned pumpkin puree in a Keto Pumpkin Spice Smoothie. To do this, simply roast or steam the pumpkin until it’s tender, then puree it in a blender or food processor until smooth. Make sure to measure the same amount of fresh pumpkin puree as the recipe calls for canned pumpkin. Using fresh pumpkin can provide a more natural and vibrant flavor, but ensure that it’s not sweetened or mixed with any high-carb ingredients to keep your smoothie keto-friendly.

What spices can I use in a Keto Pumpkin Spice Smoothie if I don’t have pumpkin pie spice on hand?

If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice on hand, you can create a similar flavor profile for your Keto Pumpkin Spice Smoothie by using a combination of ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, and ground allspice or cloves. A typical ratio might be 4 parts cinnamon, 2 parts ginger, 1 part nutmeg, and 1 part allspice or cloves. Adjust the proportions according to your taste preferences, and feel free to experiment with additional spices like cardamom or mace for a unique twist on the classic pumpkin spice blend.
