Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Smoothie Recipe


Are you sick of pumpkin everything yet? I'm not a huge fan of nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon (aka "pumpkin spice", because pumpkin has little to no flavor on its own). And I downright dislike pumpkin pie. But this breakfast smoothie is delicious and filling AND contains a vegetable. So there.

Plus, you can make a batch of 4 up ahead of time and keep it in the fridge, so you only have to exert minimum effort in the morning.


Ingredients (for 4 smoothies)

  1. Whisk together milk, rolled oats, and flax seeds and let sit in the fridge for 3+ hours.

  2. Into that, mix pumpkin, liquid sweetener, and spices.

  3. In the morning, pour 1/3 of this mixture into a blender.
     
  4. Add a peeled frozen banana.
     
  5. Blend until smooth. If desired, add more sweetener.

It tastes like pumpkin pie. But it also makes a great base to add other things, like protein powder, peanut butter, etc. Enjoy!
