One of my favorite ways to come up with recipes is to hack something healthy and make it taste like something that we all know and love. What better to indulge in at this time of year than pumpkin pie! It is one of the best fall comfort foods.
Blend up all of these flavors into a delicious and nutritious protein shake and you have the best of both worlds. This even makes a great addition to breakfast with the kiddos. They are more than willing to have a shake with their breakfast. Especially when I tell them it’s a pumpkin pie protein shake!
This creamy, dreamy, protein shake tastes exactly like pumpkin pie and takes only seconds to make. Plus, it is packed with healthy fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fat.
- 2 scoops grass-fed collagen
- 1 cup almond milk or coconut milk
- ½ cup organic pumpkin puree
- ½ banana, sliced and frozen (frozen banana is key for texture!)
- 1 handful raw almonds
- 2 Tbsp raw honey
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp ground clove
- 4-6 ice cubes
- Add protein powder, almonds, and spices to a high-speed blender and blend until a smooth powder is formed.
- Add remaining ingredients and blend until rich and creamy.
