Pumpkin Spice Smoothie: It's like fall in a cup
I've been on a pumpkin kick lately.
Pumpkin may be like holiday music before Christmas. By the time you hit Thanksgiving, you're sick of it.
Although, I'm not quite convinced that I will be. I don't see an end to this obsession any time soon!
Between making three separate batches of pumpkin butter (here and here), eating pumpkin oatmeal, drinking pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks, and even adding some pumpkin pie spice to my homemade granola bars, I'm still anxiously scouting out pumpkin-inspired recipes.
You can imagine how long it took me to find my blender when I saw this recipe on Oh She Glows.
If you don't have a vivid imaginagion, I'll tell you.
I did tweek the recipe a bit and I love it. In fact, I have it for breakfast. I slurp it up for a snack. And I've even made it for dessert (not all in one day...I'm not that bad!). Josh thinks I'm mad. I just think it's a better addiction than soap operas or margaritas!
Here's my version:
1 cup of almond milk or regular milk (I've recently discovered how much I love almond milk and how absolutely amazing it is in smoothies!)
1/4 cup of rolled oats
1 small frozen banana
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
A glob of pumpkin butter (if available, if not, it's still good without it!)
Put it all in a blender and blend it until smooth. If you like pumpkin spice, you'll love this! Not only is it seriously yummy, it's pretty good for you too! Cheers :)
