There's so many warming comforts in the fall like knit sweaters, hot apple cider and pumpkin pie!
But here in LA with an ongoing heat wave, many of us are looking for ways to enjoy the season and cool down. That's why this Pumpkin Pie Smoothie recipe from Oh She Glows is the perfect choice.
CREAMY PUMPKIN PIE SMOOTHIE
2 cups Almond Milk
1/2 cup Rolled Oats
2 tbsp Chia Seeds
1 cup Pumpkin (canned, or use fresh cooked and blended)
1/2 tbsp Blackstrap Molasses (or Coconut Syrup or Raw Honey)
1 ripe Banana (frozen)
2 tsp Cinnamon (ground)
1/2 tsp Ginger (ground)
1/4 tsp Nutmeg (ground)
1.5-2 tbsp pure maple syrup
Coconut Whipped Cream, for garnish
1. In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the milk, oats, and chia seeds. Place in fridge for 1 hour or preferably overnight.
2. Add soaked oat mixture to blender along with the pumpkin, molasses, frozen banana, and spices. Blend until smooth. Add about 5 ice cubes and blend until ice cold.
3. Add maple syrup to taste. I found 1.5 tbsp was perfect for me.
4. Serve with Coconut Whipped Cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top!
