Healthy Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake Recipe

  • by Michelle
  • November 30, 2016

‘Tis the season to have everything pumpkin flavour, so I thought I would share one of my favourite healthy pumpkin pie protein shake recipes.  Even though I sometimes have trouble drinking protein shakes during the winter (because I’m a wimp and they make me cold), they are still a great way to cram in some nutrition while on the go.

Protein shakes are still the best way to get your nutrition and macros in when you are in a rush, on the go, or just want a healthy snack!  This pumpkin pie protein shake recipe is so tasty it almost tastes “unhealthy”, but don’t worry you can enjoy it guilt-free!

One thing to remember – Protein shakes can sometimes end up be higher calorie than expected if you add too many higher calorie ingredients.  This recipe below is perfect for a snack, but if following other protein shake recipes, be careful that you are not adding too many ingredients.  Entering everything into a food tracker (such as myfitnesspal) is a great way to see just how many calories is in each of your shakes.

Now on to the yummy stuff!

Throw all of the following ingredients in a blender & blend:

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 avocado (Can swap for 1/2 banana)
  • 3/4 cup organic canned pumpkin (no sweeteners or other ingredients! Just pumpkin!)
  • 2 tsp stevia
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seed (could swap for chia seeds)
  • Optional: 2 handfuls for fresh spinach (you can’t taste it and adds more nutritional value!)
  • THEN….. add ice cubes until you get it thick enough, or to your desired texture.  I add about 6 ice cubes (3 at a time) and it makes a thick & creamy smoothie!!

 

Try it out and let me know what you think!!
