When the leaves change color and I bask in that special, dusky light on the way home from an evening run, I get a crazy craving for pumpkin pie. So urgent, I can't even grab a fork, much less defrost a pie crust! That's where this recipe comes in handy. Pumpkin pie through a straw.
Since this recipe is pretty healthy to start, I like to crumble some graham crackers or gingersnaps on top... to balance it out a bit ;)
- 1/2 cup quick oats
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup fat free milk (vegans use almond milk)
- 1 cup ice
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
- 1-2 tsp cinammon
- pumpkin pie spice to taste
In a blender add milk, pumpkin, sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice. Add oats and ice. Blend on high until very smooth.
