Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake Recipe
Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake
I had a strange craving for pumpkin after the gym today and decided to play with my pumpkin spice latte recipe to incorporate it into my post-workout protein shake. The result was great! Pumpkin is usually one of those seasonal dishes we look forward to but unfortunately the only way it tends to get in our stomachs is in the form of a pie. It’s such a shame too, because pumpkin is actually is a great vegetable that’s low in carbs and loaded with vitamins and antioxidants.
1 Scoop Vanilla Protein
3 Tbsp Pumpkin Puree
1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
2 Packets of Sweetener (I use PureVia)
1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/8 tsp Cloves
1 tsp Vanilla Extract (No Corn Syrup!)
1. Combine all ingredients in a blender
2. Add ice little by little until desired consistency/thickness is reached
3. Pour in a cup, garnish with additional nutmeg and drink up!
