  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (fresh or canned)

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any milk of your choice)

  • 1 banana (ripe)

  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup

  • A handful of ice cubes



In a blender, add the pumpkin puree, banana, almond milk, protein powder, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and sweetener of your choice.

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!
