It’s hot hot hot here in the midwest and the last thing I want to be eating for breakfast is something warm!
Nope, not gonna do it.
I’ve been living on smoothies, popsicles and chia seed puddings for breakfasts recently. I’ve run through all the normal chia pudding combos, vanilla, maple, berry etc…and I was craving something different.
PUMPKIN! Pumpkin in summer? Why not?
Now before you roll your eyes and comment how the pumpkin spice latte keeps coming back earlier and earlier, let me stop you.
This isn’t your average pumpkin flavored dish! It’s complex and refreshing at the same time! It may sound like a fall recipe, but the fresh banana and shredded coconut both delight and confuse your taste buds :)!
It’s the perfect summer breakfast that I’ve been eating on repeat lately! Give it a try for yourself!! :)
