Why You Will Love This Keto Pumpkin Smoothie

Keto Pumpkin Smoothie

Pumpkin smoothies are a must during the Fall season, especially at Halloween, but you can enjoy them any time of the year!

I personally make pumpkin smoothies all the way in December, and even February at some point.

If you crave pumpkin, just make a smoothie!

This low-carb pumpkin smoothie is not just ideal for the keto diet, but it’s also packed with goodness.

Here’s an overview of why I think you will love it as much as me:

  • Rich in Nutrients: Combines ingredients high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, supporting overall health.
  • Protein Boost: The cottage cheese and peanut butter provide a good source of protein, essential for muscle repair and growth.
  • Fiber Content: Pumpkin puree contributes dietary fiber, aiding in digestion and promoting a feeling of fullness.
  • Healthy Fats: Unsweetened peanut butter contains healthy fats that are beneficial for heart health.
  • Low in Sugar: Using unsweetened ingredients helps keep the sugar content low, making it a healthier option.
  • Seasonal Flavor: Pumpkin spice adds a delightful autumnal flavor, making it a tasty seasonal treat.
  • Dairy-Free and Versatile: Almond milk makes this smoothie dairy-free, catering to those with lactose intolerance or preferring plant-based milk.

If you enjoy this recipe, I am sure you will also enjoy my raw vegan pumpkin smoothie and my smoothie bowl with pumpkin!

Customizing The Smoothie & Recipe Notes

To suit your preferences better, this smoothie recipe can easily be customized.

Here are some ideas of some variations I have personally tested:

  1. Swap The Peanut Butter: The peanut butter can be replaced with almond or cashew butter. For a nut-free alternative, you can use sun butter or 1/4 avocado.
  2. Protein: Add a scoop of keto protein powder, or unsweetened collagen powder (which is my favorite keto protein powder).
  3. The Base: To reduce the carbs per serving even more, swap the almond milk for plain water.
  4. Pumpkin Spice Alternative: Use a mix of dried ground nutmeg and cinnamon if you don’t have pumpkin spice.
  5. The Pumpkin: You can use cooked cooled pumpkin instead of pureed. Just make sure you use unsweetened and unflavored cooked pumpkin.

Equipment:

Blender Type Suitability
Nutribullet 600
Vitamix Blender Propel 510
BlendJet 4000mAh
Ninja Blender BL610
Oster 6640 Blender
Hamilton Beach 58148A Blender
AMZChef Blender 1800 W
Wamife Blender

While the smoothie was compatible with all my blenders, for single-serving smoothies, I recommend that you use a personal blender, like a Nutribullet, or a blendjet.

If you are doubling or tripling the recipe I recommend that you use a higher-capacity blender, such as a hamilton beach blender or a Vitamix.
