Smoothie Sunday: Pumpkin Oatmeal Smoothie

It’s now officially fall which means it’s seasonally appropriate to start eating pumpkin again!  It also means that Smoothie Sunday is coming to a close for the year.  But they’ll be back again next year!  But for now we’re winding down with a yummy fall themed smoothie.  I’ve made a couple of smoothies that use overnight oatmeal before, and that makes up the base of this smoothie as well.  It does require a bit of advanced planning (I myself actually almost forgot to get the oatmeal ready last night) but it’s worth it.  This smoothie is super creamy and really filling.  It’s a nice hearty smoothie to get you through those early fall mornings.

(Most of) What you’ll need.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Smoothie:

  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ¼ cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 ½ tsp sugar (or more to taste)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ginger
  • 6 ice cubes
  • ½ cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 tsp molasses

The night before: combine the first 8 ingredients in a container and store in the fridge overnight.

In the morning, put the overnight oatmeal and last 3 ingredients into your blender, and blend until well combined.  Taste and adjust salt and sugar/spices as needed.  Pour into a tall glass and enjoy!
