The Pumpkin Protein Shake

 

 

Prep Time: 0              Total Time: 2 mins                   Servings: 1

Ingredients:

1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree (or make fresh pumpkin puree yourself, if you enjoy overachieving and annoying others)
1/2 cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt (or substitute a scoop of your favorite vanilla protein powder**)
1/2 cup almond milk
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg1/4 teaspoon cinnamon1/4 teaspoon pumpkin spice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 hand-fulls of ice
1 packet stevia*

*for extra sweetness, you could add 1/2 banana

Directions:
Mix everything together in a blender. Serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon and pumpkin spice on top

 Final Thoughts?

Step Out Of Your Comfort Zone: Normally, when people think of “smoothies,” they think “fruit,” and with fruit comes a certain level of sugar. Because this pumpkin shake does not contain fruit, it might strike you as a little flat at first sip. I don’t necessarily mean that in a bad way—you just need to try this recipe wanting a healthy, pumpkin breakfast drink, and not a summery fruit smoothie.  
Experiment with it:If your taste buds find the initial recipe is “too flat,” and you’re not trying to avoid the sugar associated with fruit, then add 1/2 of a banana. BOOM
** If you’re vegan … try substituting the greek yogurt for a scoop of your favorite vanilla soy protein powder!

    Question: You put 1/2 cup pumpkin puree in the first line and then in the fourth line list 1/4 cup pumpkin puree. Is it 3/4 cup total or was that a mistake?

      Good catch, it was a mistake — sorry about that! It is just 1/2cup total pumpkin puree. (The “1/4cup” was supposed to be 1/4 teaspoon of Pumpkin SPICE.) I corrected it :) …Can’t wait to hear your feedback after you try it!
