Pumpkin is a popular fall ingredient and you can eat even it all year round if you want to. It also makes an ideal flavor. This is why you will see it in so many different recipes. While pumpkin spice lattes remain many people’s favorite drink, there are plenty of other good choices out there too.
These keto pumpkin smoothie recipes are a particularly good alternative to try out. You’re making a cold drink, which is perfect for the warmer months. The smoothies also vary from one another. This includes differences in the combination of flavors, along with the choice of ingredients. It’s often worth trying out multiple recipes until you find the perfect choice for you.

Pumpkin Spice Keto Smoothie
Here’s a simple smoothie from 5minutelife.me. The recipe only requires four ingredients. You probably have these all on hand already, While it is a fun recipe to try, be aware that it won’t suit everyone. The carb content is relatively high for a keto smoothie, while the levels of fat and protein are much lower than you might expect. As a result, this smoothie is best used as a treat, rather than as a way to improve your macro intake for the day.

Pumpkin Pie Milkshake
This shake comes from briana-thomas.com and it focuses on the flavors of pumpkin pie. The recipe is slightly unusual, as it contains frozen cauliflower.

There are some other interesting flavors included as well, which all make the smoothie turn out splendidly.
Caramel Powder Keto Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
How about caramel and pumpkin for a less common choice of flavors? The combination is exactly what this recipe from oliveyouwhole.com offers.

Sugar Free Pumpkin Milkshake
Here’s a more common smoothie style to try out. This time the recipe comes from Brenda at sugarfreemom.com. I love the way the drink looks in the photographs. Despite that amazing appearance, the recipe isn’t different to make at all. There are only three main ingredients, along with optional whipped cream for the topping.
Just be aware that the carb content is on the high side. The net carb content is 7.2 grams per serving. This amount might still be fine as a treat, but you’d probably need to plan your carb intake around the smoothie.
Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake
This recipe from livbreatheketo.com is another interesting one to try out. You’re getting pumpkin flavor from pumpkin pie spice and also from pumpkin puree. Other ingredients provide the protein content and additional flavors.
This recipe might look exactly like the other smoothies on this list, but that’s not entirely the case. Kristi (from kristitrimmer.com) uses ice cream as a key ingredient. While this isn’t a common choice for keto smoothies, the addition of ice cream does work well. The ice cream helps to create a thick texture. You can also leave it out if you would rather not have ice cream for breakfast.
This final item recipe comes from uplateanyway.com. It’s a simple choice, just relying on five different ingredients. The small ingredients list helps to ensure that you’ll have all the ingredients at hand. In addition, the shake avoids any frozen ingredients. This makes it easy to mix, even with just a stick blender.
