Manic Monday with A Recipe Review – Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

HWKIP Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

One of my favorite things about the Paleo blogging community is that everyone is so supportive of each other. Even if the bigger named bloggers don’t know who I am, or that I’m pulling out the pom poms and cheering them on; I’m beyond excited to pass along these amazing people. I follow them and I hope that you’ll check them out and consider following them as well.

Today is from ‘He Won’t Know It’s Paleo.’ Breanna fed her gluten loving husband for six months without him knowing that he was eating paleo! What a feat because my husband is aware and has never really been too happy about it. You can find her on Facebook, Instagram, and her website. I’ll link those things below. ^__^ This was so easy to do and had a smooth, drinkable texture. I know when I do smoothies with just almond milk and fruit, it often is like a thick frosty than a drink. It really was like drinking a pumpkin pie…minus the crust.

Here’s what you’ll need (or may already have on hand! I did!):

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 2 tablespoons collagen powder (for 13g of protein) (I didn’t have this and just left it out.)
  • Honey, to taste

Ready for probably the easiest recipe I may ever post?

Put it in a blend. Blend until you don’t hear big chunks of ice. Pour in a glass. This makes one regular sized glass up. Enjoy.

Isn’t that great? What can be faster on a Manic Monday for breakfast, quick snack, or just because. In fact, I may get done with this and run to the store for more bananas!

I hope you enjoy this recipe and check out Breanna! I’ve even done her dinner roles that are pretty darn convincing to this paleo gal. You can find her at or on Facebook! I hope you’ll come back next time and see who I’m jumping up and down for next.
