I’m still dreaming about that pumpkin chocolate chip milkshake I had this weekend.
I’ve been thinking about it so much the past two days that I decided I needed to make my oatmeal taste as close as possible to the shake. Could that even happen? Oatmeal that tastes like a milkshake?
Not many changes from my normal pumpkin oatmeal, but this bowl was definitely spicier!
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup milk
- pinch salt
- 1-2 tiny drops NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia
- pinch nutmeg, cloves, and ground ginger!
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- 1/2 banana, sliced
- Dark chocolate chunks
- a dollop of fresh almond butter, for some healthy fat and staying power!
Maybe it wasn’t ice cream or a frozen treat, but my pumpkin oatmeal will have to use all these spices now. I loved the vanilla stevia, too.
I don’t normally sweeten my oatmeal with anything besides banana, but that tiny bit of depth from the vanilla was perfect and it really let the spices shine.
And you can never go wrong with dark chocolate and pumpkin. Ever.
Even more fun in a glass!
Have you ever made a pumpkin smoothie or milkshake? Do you have a good recipe?
I think I need to try making my own soon.
