Banana Pumpkin Smoothie

I have found a new breakfast love!! I have been missing my morning bowl of oats, but with the warmer weather I haven’t really been in the mood for something hot in the morning. So today I tried a new smoothie creation. It’s basically my pumpkin oats all thrown in a blender!!

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 Heather’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 couldn’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 it’s going to be a rough day!!! Let’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:

  • Kickboxing
  • Pilates Class
  • Walk with Skinny Bride!!!

Happy Tuesday Friends!
