This Pumpkin Pie Smoothie recipe with pumpkin puree, frozen yogurt, and pumpkin pie spice can be ready in minutes whenever the craving hits!
My daughters suggested that I try making a pumpkin pie smoothie. One of their friends loves the Pumpkin Smash from Jamba Juice and will drive 30 minutes just to get one! So, I made this delicious copycat recipe that you can make at home any time you want.

Pumpkin Smoothie Ingredients
- Frozen Yogurt: Use fat-free, no sugar added frozen yogurt.
- Pumpkin Puree: Make sure to choose 100% pureed pumpkin.
- Milk: The milk adds protein and thins the mixture down.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice: Gives this smoothie the taste of fall!
- Vanilla Protein Powder: Add for extra protein and flavor.
How To Make A Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
First, let’s talk about canned pumpkin. For this pumpkin smoothie recipe, you’ll want to use 100% pure pumpkin. The only ingredient in the can is pureed pumpkin. You may also notice canned pumpkin pie mix on the shelves, but the ingredients include sugar and spices for making a pie.
Put the fat-free, no-sugar-added vanilla frozen yogurt, pumpkin puree (I prefer using frozen cubes of pumpkin puree because it makes the smoothie thicker), milk, pumpkin pie spice, and protein powder into a blender.
Blend the mixture until the pumpkin smoothie is smooth.
Divide the pumpkin spice smoothie between two cups.
Garnish the glasses with a little extra pumpkin pie spice, and add a straw.
Other Ways To Make It
Since this is a copycat Jamba Juice Pumpkin Smash, the only extra ingredient I added was the protein powder, which is, of course, optional. As far as additional ingredients go, here are a few suggestions:
- ground flax seed
- chia seeds
- peanut butter
- smoothie booster
