Hello dear smoothie lovers! ☺️
This is my second pumpkin pie smoothie breakfast recipe. I made this gorgeous breakfast jar for my dear hubby 😍 This smoothie jar is filling and will keep you, or your loved one, satisfied for a long time 😉
- To recreate this breakfast jar, start by preparing this pumpkin pie smoothie 🎃. It is super delicious so be careful to not to drink it up and leave some for the morning jar 😆
- 1 cup of pumpkin pie smoothie (see above) or as much as you need to form two pumpkin layers (depends on the size of your serving glass or a jar).
- 1/2 cup of vanilla yogurt
- 4-5 tbsp of granola or oatmeal
- 1/2 banana for decoration 🍌
- some seeds and nuts of your choice for topping. I used quinoa pops in this recipe.
- Prepare the pumpkin pie smoothie with this recipe.
- Take a serving glass or a jar and put half of the granola or oatmeal on the bottom.
- Cut finely the banana and stick the slices to the sides of the glass or jar. The thinner you will make the banana slices, the easier they will stick to the glass.
- Pour a layer of the pumpkin smoothie.
- Then pour a layer of vanilla yogurt on top of the smoothie.
- After that, carefully put the remaining granola or oatmeal on yogurt and stick one more layer of banana slices to the sides of the glass or jar.
- Pour the last pumpkin smoothie layer until the glass/jar is full.
- Top with your favourite seeds and/or nuts.
- Keep refrigerated for at least a one hour before serving or better leave in the fridge over night.
Why my Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Breakfast Jar is good for you:
- Pumpkin is rich in beta-carotene and other antioxidants with cancer protective properties. Consuming one cup of cooked pumpkin would provide well over 100% of our daily needs for vitamin A, 20 percent of the daily value for vitamin C, 10% or more for vitamin E, vitamin B2, potassium, copper, and manganese, and at least 5% for vitamin B1, B6, folate, pantothenic acid, niacin, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus.
- Yogurt contains a good amount of protein, as well as several other nutrients like calcium, vitamin B2, vitamin B12, potassium, and magnesium.
- Granola‘s oats a fair amount of fiber and iron, while nuts and seeds in it add heart-healthy unsaturated fats and some protein. However, granola is usually high in sugar and thus calories. Be aware of it, if you are trying to lose weight.
Enjoy your filling and gorgeous breakfast and have a great day! 💪
