I like to think I’m in pretty good shape, but nothing reminds me of my physical imperfections like Taekwondo class. In an effort to get stronger and in better, overall shape, I’ve started going to the gym a couple of times a week with a friend (a 4th degree black belt, no less!). With it being the season of “pumpkin spice everything”, I’ve started making these simple pumpkin spice protein shakes as a treat after my workout. Want to try one? Then keep reading…
Here’s everything you’ll need:
Inredients: Pumpkin Puree, Unsweetened Almond Milk, Pumpkin Pie Spice, and Vanilla Protein Powder. Most protein powders are made with whey, which does NOT agree with my system, so I use a Vegan-based protein powder.
I use a Nutri-Bullet for blending the shake, but you could use a blender or even stir, stir, stir to mix your shake.
To make the shake: Pour 8 oz Unsweetened Almond milk into your blending container. Add 1/4 cup pumpkin puree, 2 scoops protein powder (or whatever is the suggested amount for 8 oz liquid), and a dash or two of pumpkin pie spice.
Blend ingredients or stir. Enjoy!
