Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Smoothie

Weather: I’m debating whether it ever got above freezing today
What I’m listening to: 
Ho Hey, The Lumineers

As you may have heard me mention before, we don’t have any smoothie shops in our part of Alaska. When we lived in California, there always seemed to be a smoothie place within 15 minutes of wherever we were. And in the fall, I would always get the pumpkin smoothie. Because, as we all know, I’m a sucker for anything pumpkin.

I love that this smoothie has oatmeal in it. It makes the smoothie thicker, healthier, and more filling. Not to mention it’s the ingredient that classifies this as a “breakfast smoothie.” But, don’t let the name stop you from drinking this any blessed time of the day (hint: I served it to my kids for dessert one night and they all thought it was like drinking pumpkin pie).

I'm a sucker for pumpkin too! When I saw that you had a smoothie that was perfectly for breakfast (or not) I had to check it out. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

I just found this on Tasty Kitchen and tried it right away! I felt a little guilty drinking it for breakfast! Seriously so yummy. I added some ice cubes to make it extra cold (I don't know why, it's only in the 30's!)  Thanks for thinking this up. It is the best pumpkin pie smoothie I have tried.

@Addielyn Wonderful! So glad you both enjoyed this! :)

 @SkerriSlick Instant oats will most likely make the texture of your smoothie gummy and probably too thick (because of the way it's processed to react as soon as it hits moisture). But, feel free to try it and let me know how it goes! :)

Thanks so much! I'm so happy you enjoyed the smoothie! And it sounds like we have similar weather. :)

 @alaskafromscratch  @SkerriSlick Instant was all I had - along with an overwhelming craving for pumpkin - so I went with it and your right, a little gummy and a lot thick! I added quite a bit of milk to smooth it out and added cinnamon (because I love it!) and an extra splash of maple syrup (just for fun). Drinking it right now and it is delish!
