When you think of fall, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Flannel, a brisk morning breeze, warm coffee…and pumpkins? Tis the season for pumpkin spice! If you love the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks, this recipe is for you. We have discovered the perfect healthy alternative for the seasonal treat. We call our version, The Pumpkin Spice Protein Shake, or the PSPS. Not only is this shake healthy, but with the combination of spices and flavors, you can satisfy all your pumpkin cravings.
Pumpkins are fall’s super fruit. They are packed with immune-boosting vitamins and minerals. During fall, sickness tends to creep in with colder weather. Pumpkin can help armor your immune system because the fruit is high in beta-carotene, which your body turns into vitamin A. In this recipe, we are enhancing the fruit’s health benefits and accentuating the hearty flavor.
This PSPS will taste more like a treat than your average protein shake.
