Hi there! It’s finally starting to feel like fall here in Ohio. October started out at 90+ degrees, so I’m ready for cooler weather and all the fall flavors! To get in the fall mood I’ve created this dairy-free pumpkin pie shake.
This dairy-free pumpkin pie protein shake has all the yummy pumpkin pie flavors and is packed with healthy ingredients. It’s perfect for breakfast or as a nutritious snack. I love protein shakes for breakfast. They are super fast, easy, and pack a ton of nutrients into one drink.
Before we move on let me tell you a secret. The secret to this recipe is to freeze your canned pumpkin. The frozen pumpkin will make your shake creamy and well, more like a milkshake! I know, mind blown, right?! ?
All you have to do is scoop or pour your canned pumpkin into an ice cube tray. I like to use easy release trays with a lid. These trays make it easier to pop out individual portions. I used these trays a lot when I used to make baby food for my daughter. They do come in handy!
Also, make sure that you purchase pureed pumpkin and NOT pumpkin pie filling. Pureed pumpkin should be the only ingredient. Pumpkin pie filling is flavored with spices and is also sweetened with cane sugar.
Keeping it Dairy Free
I use unsweetened almond milk from Califia Farms for this recipe, but you can use any milk you prefer for this dairy-free pumpkin pie shake. I think oat milk or cashew milk would taste great too!

Health Geek Pumpkin Facts
Before we get to the recipe, I have to geek out for a minute and tell you about how pumpkin is an incredibly nutritious food. Pumpkin is nutrient-dense, meaning it has lots of vitamins and minerals.
One cup of cooked pumpkin provides your amazing body with:
- Fiber: 3 grams
- Protein: 2 grams
- Vitamin K: 49% of the RDI
- Vitamin C: 19% of the RDI
- Potassium: 16% of the RDI
- Copper, manganese and riboflavin: 11% of the RDI
- Vitamin E: 10% of the RDI
- Iron: 8% of the RDI
- Folate: 6% of the RDI

It’s also exceptionally high in beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant. In summary, pumpkin is awesome.
