If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice in your pantry, you can make your own with the recipe below.

Blackstrap molasses is highly nutritional, a good source of energy and carbohydrates and packed with vitamins and minerals.

Ingredients

Serves 1

¾ cup milk
¼ cup rolled oats
1 large, sliced, frozen banana
1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
Chopped almonds or pecans (optional)

1. In a small bowl, combine the milk and rolled oats, stirring to combine. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or overnight to allow the oats to absorb the milk.

2. Transfer the milk-oat mixture to a blender and add the frozen banana, molasses, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla. Blend until smooth.

3. Garnish with chopped almonds or pecans, if desired, and serve immediately.
