Pumpkin Smoothie - Hits all the marks!

This one is a winner on all counts.  I mean, you really can't go wrong with pumpkin, in my opinion.  But this one has some extra goodness in it!  It's a perfect breakfast.

Recipe slightly altered from Angela Liddon's from Oh She Glows

2 cups almond milk
1/2 cups rolled oats
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 t vanilla
1/2 T blackstrap molasses
1 ripe banana
2 t cinnamon
1/2 t ground ginger
1/4 t ground nutmeg
1.5-2 T pure maple syrup
1 cup canned or real pumpkin
10-15 ice cubes

Start with the first ingredient and add them in order into a blender.  Blend until smooth.

The kids LOVED this one.  It's a true breakfast in a cup - this one is great for the road.  I'm thinking of adding 2 dates to the next one for a little extra sweetness and some extra vitamins.

Keeping it real! Kathy
