  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (use a plant-based protein powder for a vegan smoothie)
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger (for a spicier, stronger ginger flavor, use 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or other milk of choice) plus more, as needed for thinning
  • 1-2 cups ice use more ice for a thicker smoothie
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon molasses (or more, to taste)
  • Optional garnish: whipped cream


  • Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth, thick, and creamy. Garnish with whipped cream and serve immediately!


*For purposes of calculating nutrition information, I used IdealLean French Vanilla Protein Powder, which has 80 calories per scoop (it's my favorite!). This is a whey protein, so make sure to use a plant-based protein if you prefer a vegan smoothie.
  • For a protein smoothie that's thick enough to eat with a spoon, use at least 2 cups of ice and just a small amount of milk to get it to blend together.
  • If you want some extra fat for staying power in your smoothie, add a tablespoon or two of almond butter or peanut butter to the mix!
  • If you don't want to use protein powder, you can substitute with a container of vanilla Greek yogurt or non-dairy yogurt. The calories and nutrition information will change, though.
  • Did you know that you can now buy non-dairy versions of Reddi-Whip in a can? Now your vegan protein shake can include whipped "cream" too! I've seen both almond milk and coconut milk versions of Reddi-Whip at my local grocery store, so keep your eye out for those.
  • Garnish your smoothie with any sweet, crunchy or creamy topping that you love. I think a small crushed gingersnap cookie is perfect, but you can also use granola or graham cracker crumbs!
