pumpkin apple smoothie bowl
If you ask me, pie is perfectly acceptable as a breakfast food. but if you’re looking for something a little less sinful, this pumpkin apple smoothie bowl is it.
It’s like two pies in one delicious, and healthy, breakfast.
Did you know that pumpkin is an immune boosting super-food? 1 cup of pumpkin contains 7 grams of fiber, 3 grams of protein, and only 80 calories.
Maybe that pumpkin pie for breakfast isn’t so bad after all.
With all of our hot, cold, and back to hot again weather, we could use all the immune-boosting we can get our hands on. Kids everywhere are coughing and sneezing all over the place, and we’ve got football, homecoming, and many projects in the works over here. Sickness has NO place in our schedule.
I probably just jinxed myself didn’t I?
Side note, Charlie’s homecoming outfit just came from Brooks Brothers, and let me tell you, he is going to be SO damn cute, I can’t stand it. Pink shirt, navy polka-dot bow tie. I’ll be posting too many pics on Instagram I’m sure. Consider yourself warned.
Sorry, back to the pumpkin; I’ve been sneaking the super-fruit into as many places as I can.
- 1 cup of vanilla Greek style yogurt
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
- 1/2 cup apple juice
- 1 banana (sliced and frozen)
- 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- diced apple and granola for topping
- place all of the smoothie ingredients into a blender jar
- blend until smooth
- pour into bowl and top with diced apple and granola
if you find it not sweet enough, a little honey or maple syrup should do the trick
You can enjoy this as a smoothie (minus the toppings) but I prefer a breakfast I can chew, so I add lots of diced apples and some pumpkin granola.
