Pumpkin Pie Oats with Cinnamon Ice Cream

Pumpkin as a superfood:
  • Fountain of youth
    • Potent in beta carotene, a powerful antioxidant to combat toxins and aging!
  • Immunity
    • Vitamins A, C, and K  coupled with beta carotene amp the immune boosting effect of pumpkin
  • Get the skinny
    • High in fibre and low in calories, this holiday staple will help to manage weight (Just not in your conventional pie)
Pump up the Nutrition!
  • This recipe calls for real pumpkin. At my house, we cook them up and bag the extras to put into the freezer and thaw later. This way you are super packing your breakfast with nutrition and avoiding the potential toxins of canned pumpkin.
  • Having used up my stores of chia seeds, this is a basic overnight oat recipe but the addition of  chia will charge this into a high fibre breakfast perfect for a post Thanksgiving gobble down .

 Recipe
Adventure Level: 2/5
Pumpkin Pie Oats:
1/2 cup rolled oats (I like Bob’s Red Mill)
1/2 cup almond milk
4 tbsp pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8th tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp alcohol free vanilla
1/8th – 1/4 tsp freshly grated ginger
pinch of cloves
pinch of Himalayan salt
Liquid Stevia to taste (I like Sweet Leaf alcohol free)
Ice cream:
1 Frozen Banana
Cinnamon to taste
Instructions:
Combine all oat pie ingredients and put in a glass jar to refrigerate overnight. In the morning, set the oats out and blend the frozen banana until creamy. The more powerful the blender, the faster and easier this will be. Add cinnamon until satisfied, top your oats and enjoy!
The Tasty Switch Up:
What you see above is topped with raw cacao nibs for a little crunch. I later added an organic apple from our tree, simply dicing it up and layering it between the pie and the ice cream for a sweet and juicing contrast of fall flavours.
With full permission to indulge your inner rebel with dessert for breakfast,
