I adore all things pumpkin and all things sweet during the fall. When I combine the two, it feels like my mouth is having a party. I find so much comfort in knowing cold and gloomy weather can be dealt with a simple treat. That’s all it takes for me, a yummy food item to take my mind off of a cruel Mother Nature move. They call comfort foods “comfort” for a reason, right?

And you know what else I find great? To be able to prepare these treats on my own, on the spot, without having the need to go out and buy them at the nearest coffee shop or restaurant. I love being able to quickly put things together, with ingredients readily available. Here is a tasty Paleo Pumpkin Smoothie recipe for you, easy to make and, well…comfort-full 😉

  1. Awesome! Pumpkin pie in a cup! I also made a latte (hot drink) version of this. I added strong coffee, a room temp banana, and omitted the ice. Then I blended everything on the “hot soup” setting! Wah-lah!

    I used canned, organic pumpkin. Where do I find raw pumpkin?

    • Great tip Jennifer! I’ll have to give that a try, sounds awesome! I actually used pure pumpkin too…for some reason I typed “raw” pumpkin, when I meant “pure” pumpkin 😉 – just corrected the typo in the ingredient list 😉

  2. I’m still confused about the pumpkin. :-)
    Raw pumpkin is pure pumpkin. Do you use cooked pumpkin?
    From the colour of your smoothie, I am guessing you used canned pumpkin. I’m not sure raw would give a nice smooth texture . . .

  3. This is fantastic! I have been looking for a good pumpkin smoothie — I stocked up on pure pumpkin after thanksgiving and was waiting for the perfect recipe to use our stash.
    I didn’t have the ginger, nutmeg, ground cloves, or allspice. I replaced the missing flavor with a teaspoon of coconut extract and a half scoop of chocolate whey protein powder. So delicious!

  4. Soooooo good! New Paleoite here just loving the way I feel eating better foods. Not missing grains as much as I expected thanks to awesome blogs like yours! Looking forward to trying more recipes. :)
