Pumpkin smoothie with Apple, Pear and warming Spices

Pumpkin Smoothie Recipes

There are about 800 pumpkin varieties! Small, large, all kinds of shapes and colors - for eating or just as decoration. What would autumn be without these magnificent vegetable fruits! Which of them fits best in a green-pumpkin smoothie - we have been looking for a long time... good things take time, we have finally found what we were looking for: nutmeg pumpkin.

Pumpkin smoothie recipe: Musketeer

Unlike Hokkaido or butternut, Muscat squash doesn't taste like starchy mush when pureed raw, but resembles its relatives - melons. This pairs perfectly with pear and apple, as well as the sweeteners banana and Medjool date.
We also combine the subtle nutmeg pumpkin flavor with warming pumpkin pie spices: a little nutmeg, cardamom, allspice, cinnamon and vanilla. In our opinion, the smoothie tasts best with a mild green base - e.g spinach or the winter salad Indian lettuce.

Spice tip: In general, spices can add variety to green smoothies - just try your favorite flavors. It's best to start with small amounts because a high-speed blender extracts all the aroma.

Would you have thought you could drink raw pumpkin in a green smoothie? How do you like our "Musketeer"?

Green smoothies have been my replacement for morning cerals since 2009. They are inspiring, delicious and speak for themselves. They fit into our lives with five kids and lots of joy in creative healthy cooking. I really love to prepare or create new smoothies. Inspired by the Green Smoothie, I combine two of my passions with my job: taking pictures and working with food.

Hello Heike,

I wouldn't recommend that. Blending a smoothie involves processing all the ingredients together. Therefore, the taste result is completely different than when you juice the same ingredients. Juicing ultimately removes the fiber or collects it as pulp. Additionally, not all smoothie ingredients – especially very soft fruits like bananas, mealy pears – juice as well as they blend.

You can find our TOP 10 juice recipes here.

Dear thanks for the recipe. I tried it out today and am equally impressed! I added a few medlars. I hadn't known muscat pumpkin before; it's really interesting how it tastes similar to melon.

I once used raw Hokkaido pumpkin in a smoothie; I didn't find it particularly noticeable in terms of taste or thickness. However, muscat pumpkin is really great!

Thanks again & have a nice week :).

Hi there!
Great, a pumpkin smoothie.
Great ingredients.
I'll include it in my recipes.
And that great picture with the cute heart emojis?
The soup is also enticing.
Keep up the good work, you gems!

Very nice recipe - thank you very much. I just hit the limits of my transport capacity while shopping because of the size of the available pumpkins... but tomorrow the pumpkin will be mine :-) !

I'm also out and about in orchards and have several varieties of apples stored in my cellar. Every other day, my breakfast is a green smoothie. Recipe off the top of my head! For example: a handful of nettles, cleavers, and ground ivy (or dandelion or salad burnet), 2 apples, a slice of beetroot, 2 dates, a banana, a slice of unsprayed lemon, 1 tsp flaxseeds, 1 tsp sesame seeds, a pinch of freshly ground pepper, and cold ginger tea infused overnight as the liquid. Once it's blended, I add another tsp of flaxseeds (for the omega-3 fatty acids).

You already added flaxseeds earlier. Then, at the end, also add another 1 tsp of ??

Gerdi
Oh, sorry, I made a mistake. It's FLAXSEED OIL that I also add last. This way, all fat-soluble vitamins can be absorbed!

Yes, thank you, I thought you made a mistake.
