Pumpkin Puree – Make it at home using my homemade Pumpkin Puree Recipe or buy it out.
Banana – Banana adds a delicious flavor and texture to the smoothies, and thus it is added in most of the smoothie recipes. Always freeze the bananas after peeling and chopping and then add to the smoothies for that perfect creamy texture.
Yogurt – I like to use Greek Yogurt as it has more protein content and is thicker. But feel free to use whichever is easily available.
Milk – To thin out the smoothie a little, add in some milk. You can also go for dairy-free options such as Almond Milk, Soy Milk, Coconut Milk, Oat Milk, etc.
Vanilla Extract – Add in some more flavor with vanilla extract. Make sure you use a good quality one for the best taste.
Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix – This does the magic in this smoothie and adds a lot of flavors. You can either make it at home using my Pumpkin Pie Spice recipe or use the store-bought one.
Honey – To add some sweetness, add as much as honey you want. You can also substitute it with some maple syrup or agave.
