Pumpkin Pie Smoothie


 
I love smoothies for breakfast and have them several times a week. Usually I'm pretty boring and an have a simple berry smoothie.  The other week I found this idea for a pumpkin pie smoothie.  I hadn't had a pumpkin smoothie in a long time and loved the thought of oatmeal in it!  I did process the oats first in the blender to make sure they were ground enough.  I ate these for almost a week straight for breakfast and loved how incredibly full I was. 



Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
Adapted from I am a Honey bee

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 6 oz of milk
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until the oats have been processed and all ingredients are combined completely. Makes 1 smoothie.

Here is the calorie breakdown for the 1 smoothie.  I added Body Bi Val protein powder so mine had about 12 more grams of protein and a whole bunch more healthy ingredients.  Seriously, this thing packed a punch and left me full for a long, long time!

  1. I've never thought of adding oats to my smoothies, but I think I'll try that next time.

    I made a pumpkin smoothie last week and it tasted like pumpkin pie! :D

  2. I like the idea of the oats too, I bet it made it more creamy & filling. Sounds good!
