Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie for Parent and Baby

homepage_discover_pumpkin_pie_smoothieThis seasonal yummy smoothie is delicious, creamy, and above all, healthy! The first time I made this I put half in a glass for me, and half in a sippy cup, and I taught Penelope how to “cheers”. She loved it! We regularly share this as a snack.

Our Pumpkin Pie Smoothie has lots of fiber, Vitamin A, and Potassium for both you and your little one. (And a bonus: you could serve this to adults only, and I can’t imagine that tossing a shot of Kahlua in there would hurt anyone!)

Age: 8 months+

Yield: approximately 3 ½ cups

Food storage: best served immediately; refrigerator-friendly for up to 24 hours

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: no cook!


  • 1 cup organic pumpkin puree (Note: be sure it is real ‘pumpkin puree’ and not ‘pumpkin pie mix’. The cans look alike!)
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1 cup almond milk (or whole milk if you prefer)
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 5 ice cubes

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass for you and a sippy cup for your little one, and serve. Enjoy a nutritious treat together!
