Notes

I love sharing tips that can enhance your cooking experience. For this protein shake, ensure that the banana is ripe for a naturally sweet taste. If using canned pumpkin, ensure it is 100% pure pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling which contains added sugars and spices. Adding a pinch of salt can heighten the flavors. You can also experiment with different protein powders; plant-based options work great for vegans!
