Pumpkin Banana Oat Smoothie

drop me in the water

This is a simple, nutritious smoothie you can whip up ahead of time for breakfast in the morning or for a snack. I generally prefer to eat my meals rather than drink them, but sometimes a smoothie hits the spot and this one is actually pretty filling. Provides a decent amount of protein & fiber for sustenance, and while it does contain sugar, none of it is added and it all comes from the milk and banana. You can add more liquid if it’s too thick for your taste.

I say to use a high powered blender because of the oats, but any blender will do. I use my Ninja and it does the trick.

Ingredients:

1 whole banana

1\4 cup pumpkin puree (canned)

1 and 1\2 cups milk of choice (I used 2%)

Dash of cinnamon

1\2 cup old fashioned oats

Mix all ingredients in a high powered blender.

Makes about 2 8oz servings.
