Pumpkin Peanut Butter and Strawberry Overnight Porridge

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

With LA being a million degrees during the first week of fall, a girl needed to improvise on how to get her “Pumpkin Everything” fix without standing in front of the stove.

I’ve done the basic combos for pumpkin: chocolate and pumpkin, banana and pumpkin, even ricotta cheese and pumpkin. I needed something new and exiciting for my tastebuds!

This is where strawberry comes into play.

Partnering with Vitamin Shoppe for new fall recipes, I decided that strawberries needed their pumpkin fix too!

Lets get this pumpkin party started. 😉

Ingredients: (Serves 1: Calories 342, Protein 22g, Carbs 42g, Fat 10g)

Note* I doubled the recipe to make two servings

For porridge-

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Topping-

  • 1/2 Tablespoon Flax and Chia seed peanut butter (Trader Joes)
  • 2 Tablespoons Pumpkin Pure
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Pumpkin Spice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon (I like a lot of spice, this is totally your preference)

Misc-

  • 1 Whole Strawberry

Directions:

  • Place ALL porridge ingredient in a jar, shake, and leave overnight in the refrigerator.
  • In the morning, stir, and dived into two glasses (If making two servings)
  • Combine Peanut Butter Pumpkin toppings together in a small ramekin, then top Porridge.
  • Decorate with as many fresh strawberries as you’d like. ENJOY!

Tip: You can Substitute the protein powder for any flavor you have. I highly recommend the Strawberry flavor though, JUST SAYIN. 🙂
