This is the closest you’ll ever get to drinking pumpkin pie.
And the nice thing is that the oats will keep you full for hours! I promise!
I’ve really been on a smoothie kick lately. Maybe it’s a mental thing because I know I’ll be giving up grains and dairy soon (doctor’s orders). But for some reason, I just cannot get enough smoothies.
Since pumpkin week is going on right now as well, I guess I felt a little inspired too. I mean, fall and pumpkin (and pumpkin spice!) just go hand in hand. What better time of year to have a pumpkin oatmeal smoothie???
I will say that this one should be a once-in-a-while treat since it a little higher in sugar. But even once in a while, this is a wonderful recipe to have on hand.
Stay tuned, I’m working on a gingerbread oatmeal smoothie next. Yum!
