Tips & Tricks
- If you want to ensure a super smooth smoothie, blend your oats to a fine powder before adding any other ingredients then remove the ground oats from the blender before adding your milk and ice.
- Add the liquid (almond milk) to the blender first. Blenders will work more efficiently when the liquid is added first.
- Use a high-power blender to break down the ice cubes.
- This healthy pumpkin smoothie recipe is a great way to use up leftover pumpkin purée!

Pumpkin Pie Spice
Use 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg, ¼ teaspoon ground ginger, 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves, and a 1/8 teaspoon allspice in place of the pumpkin pie spice
Vanilla Greek Yogurt
Plain Greek Yogurt can be used instead of Vanilla. I prefer vanilla for the little flavor boost and the added sweetness. Forager Project Cashewmilk Yogurt is a great dairy free alternative.
Pure Maple Syrup
Honey or your sweetener of choice can be used in place of pure maple syrup.
Add a scoop of protein powder for a higher protein smoothie. (Adds additional calories.)
