I want to talk a little bit about breakfast. The fact that I used to skip it. Every damn day.

I used to wake up at 5am, drink a mug of coffee. Get ready for work. Proceed to drink another cup of coffee on the way into work and for the first hour while I was there. Finally around 10 or so, I’d go to the break room and grab myself a yogurt and granola. 10am!

That’s a whole 5 hours since I’d been awake. And it wasn’t just 5 hours I was going without eating – it was 5 hours plus however many hours it had been since dinner the night before – probably about 10 on average. So I was going a whole 15 hours without feeding my body!

When you put it that way, it sounds pretty asinine, right?

The problem is though, 31 million Americans skip breakfast every day!

I know I don’t do that adulting thing all that well unless I eat a good breakfast before I get started on my to-do list.

Especially because after a couple cups of coffee without any food, I tend to get the jitters. And well, jitters aren’t good for my concentration or productivity.

PUMPKIN FOR BREAKFAST!

I sure do love smoothies first thing in the morning, but what I love more is a smoothie bowl. For two reasons.

One. I feel like I actually get to eat something instead of drink it.

Two. It’s like a smoothie PLUS. You get toppings. And crunch. And chewing. It’s so hearty and healthy and delicious all at once, and I really can’t complain there now can I?

Pumpkin Cinnamon Crunch Smoothie Bowl

Ingredients

  • 1 16- ounce can pure pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 4 ounces Silk Almond Milk
  • 8 ounces container of pumpkin flavored Noosa yogurt (or other pumpkin-flavored yogurt of your choice)
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 cup oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon ground flax seed
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 2 cups ice
  • For Topping:
  • kashi cereal (I used the cinnamon crunch cereal)
  • slivered almonds
  • chopped pecans
  • ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Blend all ingredients together in a high speed blender except for the toppings.
  • To ensure a thick smoothie that will be good for eating with a spoon, use quite a bit of ice. You can put your smoothie in the freezer for 20-30 minutes before serving to solidify even more.
  • Pour into a shallow bowl and top with desired amounts of Kashi cereal, almonds, pecans, and cinnamon. You could also use sunflower seeds, raisins, flax, chia, etc.

    1. Yeah, I think it’s a mindset or something. If I’m eating something instead of drinking it, I tend to feel more full. Plus all the crunchy toppings make it deliciously yummy!

    1. I can’t wait to try some of the other Noosa flavors! Of course, I couldn’t NOT start with pumpkin 🙂
