This time of year, pie pumpkins and persimmons start showing up in grocery stores and farmers’ markets. For this recipe, we’ll be using a raw pie pumpkin to make our puree, but you can use canned pumpkin puree if you don’t care about keeping this smoothie fully raw. Make sure your persimmons are squishy ripe and sweet before using them.

Pumpkin Health Benefits

Pumpkin is very high in vitamin A. It also has plenty of vitamins C, B2, and E and contains quite a bit of potassium, copper, manganese, and iron. It’s low in calories but high in fiber. And it is high in antioxidants. All this helps to strengthen our immunity, increase our heart health, give us healthy skin, and protect our eyesight.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of pumpkin puree (from raw pie pumpkin if possible)

  • 1 cup almond milk

  • 2-3 ripe persimmons

  • 1-3 bananas, depending on how thick you want it

  • 1 whole orange

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice

  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

Directions

  • For this recipe, we’ll be using a raw pie pumpkin to make our puree, but you can use canned pumpkin puree if you don’t care about keeping this smoothie fully raw.
  • We’ll just use about a third of this pie pumpkin.
  • Scoop out the seeds and pulp.
  • And peel the rind, which is too tough to eat raw.
  • Now, chop it into cubes for the blender or food processer.
  • Puree the chopped pie pumpkin with the liquids before adding the other ingredients, but it works fine to combine all ingredients at once, too.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Pour into you favorite fall glasses.
  • You can sprinkle some more nutmeg on top for garnish.
