Creamy and smooth, this Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake has enough yummy goodness to satisfy the strongest pumpkin cravings, yet is packed full of protein to help keep you full.
Let’s get real for a minute. I am crazy for pumpkin. Pumpkin decor, fake pumpkins, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin desserts. Lots of pumpkin desserts. So of course I have a pumpkin pie protein shake on the agenda to share with you this season.
This is a recipe I’ve been concocting for a bit. I love making protein shakes because not only can I curb my sweet tooth, but the high amount of protein in them helps keep me full.
My secret is the vanilla whey protein powder I use. It has 21 grams of protein per serving, but only 1 gram of sugar per serving. It’s hard for me to keep my sugar intake low when I LOVE sweets, so adding this protein powder to shakes and smoothies gives them a sweet flavor without adding a ton of sugar. I even use it to make protein bars and granola bars.
I make this protein shake as a snack, or more often, to eat for breakfast. Because let’s face it, I have zero time in the mornings to make breakfast. This easy pumpkin pie protein shake comes in handy because there’s few ingredients and it whips up in no time. Plus I can take it in the car. Win. Win. Win.
