Pumpkin Spice Shake

pumpkin spice shakeSomething about pumpkins just warms my heart. It is almost fall – and Starbucks has reintroduced its Pumpkin Spice Latte for the season. This makes me jump for joy.

I am a strong advocate for living a little. So, by all means, don’t deprive yourself of this sugary drink (drink in moderation).

However, if you are looking for a breakfast drink (minus all the sugar) – just as tasty as the Starbucks latte, I found the one for you!

This Pumpkin Shake is perfect for breakfast. It’s like a morning sunrise hug! Pumpkin is high in fiber and low in calories, so it will keep you feeling fuller longer!

You will need: ¼ cup pumpkin puree, ¾ cup skim milk or coconut milk, 4 ice cubes, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. nutmeg, 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder, 1 tsp. chia seeds, ½ cup water

This shake is made in the blender – and it is simple. Just add all the ingredients in – one at a time. And then mix on high for about a few minutes.

Pour the icy mixture into a pretty cup and sprinkle a little cinnamon on top. Viola! You are done. Sip away!

This drink will also help your complexion. Pumpkin is filled with vitamins C, E, and A, as well as powerful enzymes that help to cleanse the skin. This is also gluten free!

    OK, you seriously just read my mind. I was just thinking to myself, “I really need to look for a healthy PSL recipe.” I’ll have to add coffee to this and let you know how it comes out! Thank you for this (and for reading my mind) 🙂

    Looks good! I have one package of pumpkin puree from last year left in the freezer. Soon it will be time to “kill the fatted pumpkin” as I like to call it and fill the freezer again.
