I have found a new breakfast love!! I have been missing my morning bowl of oats, but with the warmer weather I havenâ€™t really been in the mood for something hot in the morning. So today I tried a new smoothie creation. Itâ€™s basically my pumpkin oats all thrown in a blender!!
BANANA PUMPKIN SMOOTHIE
- 1 cup Almond Milk
- 3/4 cup canned pumpkin, chilled
- 1/2 cup ice cubes
- 1 fresh squeezed orange
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tbsp pumpkin spice
- 1/2 scoop of vanilla whey protein
- 1/4 c oats
- Dash of cinnamon
- 1 ripe banana, sliced and frozen
The frozen fruit helped give this smoothie a thick texture!! The combo of banana, pumpkin, and orange juice gives this breakfast beverage a ton of Vitamin C and Potassium!!! I must remember to always freeze my bananas!
So last night after AKB I had a quickie dinner. I steamed some Green Giant garden vegetable medley, and threw it in the last of m veggie chili. I am not so sure if this fits’ in to Heatherâ€™s Cleaner Life Month challenge?
I was just happy to have some veggies and not make a huge mess in the kitchen. I fell asleep around 10:30pm but then woke up at 2am and couldnâ€™t go back to bed for the life of me!! I ended up getting up and working on a couple things that where on my mind, like a savings goal sheet, and WWRT stuff. I tried going back to bed at 4am, but no luck until 5am and then I ended up getting out of bed at 7:30am. I KNOW IT WAS THE MISTO I HAD AT 5PM!!!!
Needless to say itâ€™s going to be a rough day!!! Letâ€™s hope this smoothie will power me through!! I see a power nap in my near future.
I have some fun things planned for this evening:
- Pilates Class
- Walk with Skinny Bride!!!
Happy Tuesday Friends!
