Weight Watchers Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Smoothie

Shares

Since starting Weight Watchers a few months ago, I’ve been craving everything pumpkin. But, I’ve been afraid to make pumpkin treats for the fear of devouring them. Who can resist it?

One of my new kicks for breakfast has been smoothies, it’s a great way to get in your fruits, vegetables and other healthy stuff. So what if we had a pumpkin pie smoothie, and what if it wasn’t too terribly bad for you?

I’ve twisted a few versions around the inter-webs and came up with this version of a Weight Watchers friendly Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Smoothie.

I think a pumpkin pie smoothie is something for an acquired taste. I really enjoyed this recipe, as my little girl did. However, my two boys did not. They couldn’t take the oatmeal texture. If you have sensitivities to an oatmeal texture, just cook the oats a little longer and make sure you blend extra well. You can hardly tell it’s there!

I’ve made this in the morning for my little girl and myself, we love it and it’s great that she can go to school with lots of good stuff in her belly. SO much better than a bowl of sugar cereal or a pop-tart, right?
