Pumpkin-Egg Nog Smoothies

Updated on September 10, 2014

I have been making pumpkin smoothies for a few Falls now and I think I've found a few good combinations for a yummy smoothie that anyone would like.

I love anything with pumpkin and I've seen other places advertise pumpkin smoothies and the like, so I thought I would try one myself. My first ones were done with milk, but here I will post the vegan version. To make a regular milk version, substitute soy or almond milk with regular cow's milk. You can use real dairy eggnog in place of Soy Nog.

I suggest using a blender that has ice crushing blades or can handle crushing ice cubes.

The photo for this page was of a dairy pumpkin smoothie that I did a few years back. Yep, been making them for a while now.

If you use vegan products and no sugar, this smoothie runs about 235-255 calories depending on if you use almond milk or not. If you don't use the soy nog, it is around 110 to 150 without added sugar. It makes a large smoothie of at least two or more cups.

Ingredients

  • 5 regular ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup Silk Soy Nog (or other kind of soy nog-like beverage)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk, coconut milk, or regular soy milk
  • 1 small or medium banana
  • 1/2 cup pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg (
  • 2 or 3 teaspoons granulated sugar (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place ice cubes at bottom of the blender.
  2. Add nog, almond milk, banana pumpkin, sugar and spices.
  3. Crush ice using pulse button, if equipped on your blender.
  4. Blend for about five minutes or until smooth. I've found the longer you blend, the fluffier the drink is. Drinks made with almond or coconut milk may have a thinner texture than those blended with regular milk or regular fat soy milk.

I use an Oster blender and I've found it to be the best blender I've owned in a long time. One thing I like about this blender is that it's easy to find replacement parts.

I love using this cup! It makes the perfect smoothies for one. I've used mine so much that it's time for a new one. It comes with its own blades and rubber seals.

 

So, tell me how you like this.

      @SusanDeppner: Thanks! I'm having a bit of a problem finding canned pumpkin this time of year, though. Next year, if I can afford it, I may buy and store some extra cans to have during the summer. The vegan egg nog will be another matter unless I can make it homemade.

      @tonyleather: It is easy and very tasty. I rarely go out and buy smoothies or ice cream, anymore, because I make my own now.
