Pumpkin Smoothie Tips

#1 Use Pie Pumpkins

A pie pumpkin is generally sweeter and meatier than a regular pumpkin. This way you will not need a bunch of extra sweetener.

In order to pick out a good pie pumpkin... Look at the outer skin. It should be a dark orange with subtle brown freckles.

In order to easily remember, think of the “pie” pumpkin covered in “pie” seasoning, like cinnamon and nutmeg. As pie pumpkins are covered with brown speckles.

#2 Storage

I love using freshly baked pumpkin. But that isn’t an option all of the time. So I buy the pumpkins and cook them all at once. Then I scrape the pumpkin meat into 1-2 cup baggies to freeze for future smoothies.

The frozen pumpkin only takes a few hours to thaw. So you do have to think ahead of time.

Another option is canning your pumpkin.

Freshly baked, frozen, and canned are all great options. You have to choose which option fits your family best.


Did you know that pumpkins are technically a fruit? But in modern day language it is called a vegetable. Confused yet? I am!


I hope that you enjoy these pumpkin smoothies as much as my family did creating them!
