Did you see my recent Low-FODMAP Pumpkin Soup Recipe from yesterday? Well, depending on how big your pumpkin was, you might have some leftovers so I have just the recipe for you: a Low-FODMAP Pumpkin Spice Smoothie Bowl for GERD and Gastroparesis that is vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free.
This warming, festive and sweet Pumpkin Spice Smoothie Bowl boasts a delicate spice blend of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves paired with a soft vanilla base. If you’re a fan of a certain latte blend, see how you find making this gorgeous easy recipe from the comfort of home.
After making this recipe, do you still have more Pumpkin leftovers to use? My next recipe will be a dreamy banana and pumpkin cake so look out for that soon!
Low-FODMAP Pumpkin Smoothie Bowl for GERD and Gastroparesis (Vegan + Dairy-Free + Gluten-Free)
- 2 tbsp Pumpkin
- 1 Banana (small or half a big banana)
- 1 tbsp Dairy Free Yoghurt (I'm using Oatly plain yoghurt)
- 100 ml Dairy Free Mylk (I'm using Hemp Milk)
- 1 scoop/tbsp Protein Vegan Powder
- 1 tbsp Peanut OR Almond Butter
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
- 1 whole Clove
- Pinch Nutmeg, Ginger or Allspice
- Gluten-Free Granola (I'm using Nature's Path)
- Coconut Chips
- Edible sparkle and decoration
- Place the chopped Pumpkin, the Banana, the vegan yoghurt and vegan mylk into a blender and blitz together. You can always add a scoop of vegan protein powder if you would like to. You'll want to give this all a good few minutes to create the consistency you're after! Add all the spices and vanilla.
- Pour your smoothie mixture into a bowl. I'm using a small bowl from Coconut Bowls. If there's too much smoothie for you, put some in another bowl and keep for another day.
- Now it's time to decorate! To start, I added a semi-circle halo top to the bowl with the Coconut Chips. Next, add the gluten-free granola in front of where you added the Coconut Chips.
- Anything else you add is now down to your whimsical imagination! I added some of my edible woodland animals, some raspberries, and some edible glitter. Now, enjoy enchanted being!
The sight of Pumpkins truly conjures up the arrival of autumn, and there’s an abundance of Pumpkin related specialities such as Pumpkin scented candles, and a certain latte blend (!), that also coincide with events such as harvest, the arrival of Pumpkin patches and Halloween that takes place on the 31st October.
I’d love to know if Halloween has any significance for you, or if it’s just another night of the year? For me, I take time to dig deeper into my Celtic roots by honouring this festival that originated from an ancient Celtic spiritual tradition.
In modern times, Samhain (a Gaelic word pronounced “sow-win” that’s derived from a compound of two ancient Gaelic words, “sam,” which was an old word for “Samrad,” or “Summer,” and “fuin,” an ancient word for “end,” referring to the “end” of Summer).
Traditionally, Samhain was usually celebrated from 31st October to 1st November to welcome in the harvest and the remaining dark half of the year.
For those that celebrated, and continue to celebrate and honour Samhain, they believe that the barriers between the physical world and the spirit world break down during Samhain, allowing more interaction between humans and “otherworld.”
This meant that the fairies and other immortal beings might roam the Earth as they pleased on this special night. As a result, only the very brave ventured out of their homes on Samhain Eve for fear of meeting one of these supernatural beings.
I lean so heavily into the origins of this magic, now more than ever. It reminds me how special it is for me to lean into mysticism in all forms.
Added Whimsical Touches
So if you’ve become enchanted by the above, why not add a little bit of whimsy to your smoothie bowl? I’m using a mix of edible sparkle, woodland creatures and granola to create a truly enchanting mix.
Nature’s Path Gluten-Free Granola has been such a magical discovery and it’s quickly become my autumnal granola of choice!
With clusters of golden baked oats, toasted pumpkin seeds, almonds, coconut, tangy cranberries, raisins and a pinch of cinnamon it’s the scents and taste of the seasons in a bowl.

Pretty Pea Protein (AD-Gifted as I have previously worked with this lovely brand and I have done a separate review here) is a vegan protein powder that is not only incredibly pretty and ethereal to behold but packed with superfoods such as Spirulina, Green Tea, Acai Berry and Chicory Root.
These powerful ingredients that feature in Pretty Pea Protein are all known for their potency and power for centuries. Having said that it’s nearly but not completely Low-FODMAP so I just wanted to add that as a little disclaimer here for those strictly following a Low-FODMAP. I haven’t had any problems whatsoever, it’s been so soothing for my tummy, but as this is a Low-FODMAP recipe just wanted to add that additional info!
If you enjoyed seeing how I add protein powder and have enjoyed this recipe, then be sure to check out my lovely Tropical Protein Pink Porridge using Pretty Pea Vegan Protein here.
I truly hope you enjoy the sweetness and creaminess of this cosy Pumpkin Smoothie Bowl!
Please note that if you’re reading a recipe that is not before August 2020 it will not be specifically low-FODMAP. Going forward, however, many more recipes will be added that will be all low-FODMAP, vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free focussed that serves those with GERD, Gastroparesis and beyond.
Finally, do you have any recipe requests for me? Especially for autumn and winter.
Also, have any of you had any experience of the low-FODMAP diet? Would you like to see more posts about my experience to date? As always, please be sure to let me know how this has landed in your heart and mind.
