Love the coffee in this pumpkin spice latte smoothie recipe. Plus it has lots of protein for breakfast

It is pumpkin spice mania all over the place, and it looks like I’ve caught the bug, too. I use to love having a Pumpkin Spice Latte at a certain coffee shop, but since I’ve cut my sugar intake, it is way too sweet. I miss that tradition of sipping a pumpkin spice latte while shopping or meeting a friend. First I thought of just making my own at home, and I will soon. In the meantime, I needed something for breakfast so a Pumpkin Spice Latte became a Pumpkin Spice Latte Smoothie.

My Vanilla Cappuccino Smoothie had been a big success, so why not? It worked brilliantly. I used some canned pumpkin puree and my own spices. With the addition of protein powder and Greek yogurt, I had a protein powerhouse. I’ve left the sweetness up to you. It does need a little, so I used a little stevia. You can use sugar or a sugar substitute. Start with a teaspoon, then add more if you need it. You don’t want this too sweet.

You can either freeze the rest of your pumpkin puree or make something else. I have quite a few recipes that use a partial can of pumpkin puree. Here are a few for you:

Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

  1. addition of protein powder is super awesome. yum
  2. Came across this recipe but I am thrown for a loop with the addition of COTTAGE CHEESE in the instructions?????
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Yes! I tend to alternate between Greek yogurt and cottage cheese depending on what I have in the fridge. Cottage cheese gives a smoothie great texture. I'll make that clear in the instructions.
  3. Oh I am excited by the idea of a smoothie with pumpkin and coffee in it! Haven't tried anything quite like this. Thanks for the inspiration!
  4. This looks like the perfect way to start the morning! It's going on my must try list!
