Healthy Pumpkin Oatmeal Shake

A perfect breakfast on the go!

I’ve mentioned my daughter’s love of Avena (mine too) which is a popular cold beverage in many Latin countries. Well this week I surprised her with a pumpkin version, yum! I love making oatmeal shakes because I know when she’s running out the door for school in the morning, at least she’s had a high fiber, nutritious breakfast. With all the college tours we’ve been going on this month, we’ve been waking up super early on weekends and jumping in the car, so these have been great.
