Tips and Tricks

Close up of seeds and craisins in bowl.
  • When making a Pumpkin banana Smoothie you will want to use plain pumpkin. This helps control the flavors.
  • When it comes the bananas it is best to use frozen bananas. I usually just freeze my old bananas after I peel them in individual baggies then I just pull them out when needed. If you use fresh bananas, add a little bit of ice before blending.
  • Have fun with the toppings. Try pecans, granola, coconut, or white chocolate for an extra indulgent treat. Really the sky’s the limit when it comes to your pumpkin spice smoothie bowl.
  • I love 3 Tablespoons of honey, but for some that might be too much, and for others that might be too little. So the honey is totally adjustable.
  • You can use any variety of milk that you prefer.
  • You can double the recipe if you prefer.

Pumpkin Spice Smoothie Bowl Toppings

When it comes to pumpkin spice smoothie bowl toppings, there are tons of options and possibilities. Get creative when topping off your pumpkin smoothie. Try these:

  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Dried Cranberries
  • Chia Seeds
  • Banana Slices
  • Diced apples
  • almonds
  • Nut butters
  • Granola
  • Coconut
  • Berries
  • Chocolate chips
  • White chocolate chips

Storage Instructions

This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled. Make a large batch at the beginning of the week and keep it frozen in the freezer in individual serving freezer-safe cups or bowls. When you are ready to enjoy, remove and thaw. You can either blend them back up or stir them really well before enjoying them.

How to Thicken Up Your Smoothie Bowl

To make a smoothie bowl thick you will want to use frozen bananas and ice. This will really thicken up the smoothie bowl. The pumpkin puree will thicken this bowl as well.

Best Blender for Smoothie Bowl

When making smoothie bowls or smoothies you want a high powered / high-speed blender that will get the job done quickly.

I love my Vitamix blender because it can quickly blend frozen ingredients fast. I have had it for years and it is still as powerful as the day I bought it. It is really versatile as well.
