So it’s officially September and we all know what that means….PUMPKIN SPICE is back! I’m not sure if I’ve ever met anyone who doesn’t love this delicious seasonal flavour. Last year we made a Pumpkin Spice granola (http://www.jmfitfood.com/recipes/kjsjs/) and this year we are starting out strong with our Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats! This can be made with whey protein or can be dairy free by using a vegan protein powder. Either way it’s a tasty treat to look forward to for breakfast, post workout or as a protein packed snack!
Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats (serves 1):
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup unsweetened almond mlk
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (we used 2%)
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (try making your own by combining 3Tbsp cinnamon, 2 tsp ground ginger, 2 tsp nutmeg, 1.5tsp all spice and 1.5tsp cloves)
1 tsp stevia
1/2 scoop of Iso Smooth Vanilla Protein Powder
1) Mix all ingredients in your mason jar or bowl, leave overnight and enjoy topped with a dollop of Greek yogurt and a few walnuts if you like!
