Toppings: Sprinkle with extra cinnamon or pumpkin spice if desired, and top with raw pumpkin seeds if you like some crunch.
Warm it Up: To serve this warm, whisk together the almond milk, pureed pumpkin, and vanilla in a small sauce pan over medium heat and bring to a gentle simmer before adding it to the blender with the remaining ingredients.
In small pot, bring milk and water to a boil over medium heat. Add oatmeal, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until liquid is absorbed, about 7 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Once the liquid is absorbed, stir in pumpkin, and almonds, and sweetener (if desired); set aside.
Combine water and protein powder in a separate bowl. Mix with a fork until protein is dissolved (may be easier to use blender).
Pour protein mixture over oatmeal and serve.
**Note:You do not need to use the entire Protein Powder mixture. Adjust it according to taste and liking.
