Huge day, you guys. For my birthday last week, my parents were so generous and got me the one basic kitchen tool that I’ve been lacking since basically forever: a BLENDER! I know, how did I survive?
A whole new world has opened up to me- smoothies, shakes, pureed soups and more. I had even started a board on my Pinterest of things I want to make “once I get a blender…”
THAT DAY IS HERE, COMPADRES!
First up, is a super delicious, decadent and simple Pumpkin Pie Smoothie. It’s fall folks, and that means our obsession with all things apple-y and pumpkin-y and turkey-y must commence. Like, immediately.
This smoothie is autumn yumminess in a cup, AND it’s dairy-free. It tastes just like pumpkin pie, and the flecks of oats are almost like the crust. Yum. Enjoy!
- 1 cup almond milk (plain-flavored)
- ½ cup rolled oats
- 1 banana
- ½ cup canned pumpkin
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 4-5 large ice cubes
- If you have time, soak the oats in the almond milk for 10-20 minutes to soften them up. This step isn’t necessary, but it will make your smoothie’s texture a little, um, smoother.
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
