This tasty Pumpkin Pie Spice Mango Smoothie proves pumpkin pie spice isn’t just for pies or pumpkin recipes! Even better, you can whip it up in minutes with just six easy-to-keep-on-hand ingredients.
Pumpkin Pie Spice
Pumpkin pie spice offers a convenient mix of:
- And sometimes allspice
I like to add the aromatic blend to my morning oatmeal and other recipes. You can use less sugar when you spice things up.
If you don’t have premixed pumpkin pie spice on hand, it’s easy to make. (Homemade is also a good option if you want to be sure your pumpkin pie spice contains Ceylon cinnamon. Cassia cinnamon is more common. However, some studies indicate Ceylon may be the better option if you consume a lot of cinnamon.)
Here’s how to make pumpkin pie spice. Combine:
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
- 1/8 tsp. ground cloves
- 1/8 tsp. ground allspice (optional)
Maintain this basic ratio when you increase quantities to make larger batches.
Pumpkin Pie Spice Mango Smoothie
This Pumpkin Pie Spice Mango Smoothie recipe features six simple ingredients:
- Rice milk
- Frozen mango
- Frozen spinach
- Chia seeds
- Medjool date
- Pumpkin pie spice
Keeping these items on hand is easy. I buy shelf-stable rice milk, so I always have a few extra boxes available. (Side note: I buy Wegman’s Organic Original Rice Beverage. I prefer its simple ingredients. I live just over a hundred miles from the closest Wegman’s store. My husband and I plan trips to visit friends and family in the area when we need to replenish out stock. That’s how strongly I feel about the added ingredients found in other store-bought plant milk varieties.)
Using frozen fruit and veggies also keeps this recipe simple. Mangos are a high fiber fruit. Like bananas, they add both flavor and creaminess to smoothies. But you don’t have to worry about frozen mango chunks going bad on your kitchen counter.
However, the convenient prep isn’t the only reason to love this Pumpkin Pie Spice Mango Smoothie. It also tastes delicious!
