Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice or 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Stevia, to taste
  • ice

Place all of the ingredients in your blender & blend until smooth. Drink & enjoy!

I totally need to get one of these glass sipper mugs for my smoothies.

Just as a funny note. I first made this recipe just experimenting because I was in the mood for pumpkin. Then after I drank it all I decided it was good enough to put it on my blog.

So I then needed to make it again in order to get a picture or two. However, I didn’t make it again right away because I had already had the full Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake and didn’t want another one at the moment.

When I went to make it again a few days later I was a little distracted & I wasn’t paying super close attention to my notes so I put in 2 Tbsp chia seeds instead of 2 tsp. It definitely made a difference and was a funny texture. Still edible but not nearly as good as the first.

So hopefully you can learn from my mistake and take it from me, less is definitely more in this case! 😉

Fall is probably my absolute most favorite! I really enjoy the beautiful weather and colors it brings to Idaho. It is never hard for me to get outside in the fall time!

I hope you enjoy this pumpkin season!

  1. Oh, this sounds marvelous and I’m definitely going to give it a try! You know, I read an article a couple of days ago that canned pumpkin isn’t really pumpkin at all but a variety of squash. This, according to Libby’s that produces around 84% of canned pumpkin. I’m a squash fan anyway so doesn’t bother me, but it does kind of mess with that comforting image of a pumpkin that we’re all so familiar with.
