Thanksgiving Pumpkin Shake

You know it’s that time of year when Starbucks advertises their ‘Pumpkin Spice Latte’s’; yes, it’s Fall and Thanksgiving is almost here.

Instead of the coffee, and possibly the high fat milk, you can have a healthy protein shake that tastes almost the same as a Latte. The Pumpkin shake is full of healthy fibre, and taste!

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Shake Recipe

  • 1 cup filtered water, milk or almond milk
  • 4 ice cubes
  • 2 heaping tbsp. unsweetened pumpkin
  • 1 whole banana
  • 1-2 scoops vanilla protein (25-50 gr protein)
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, pecans or 1 tbsp. peanut butter
  • Ground cinnamon to taste (you can also add a pinch of nutmeg and ground cloves)

Optional healthy omega fats option:

  • 1-2 tsp. fish oil (I like O3mega from Genuine Nutrition) or flax oil

Put liquid, ice and then remaining ingredients in a blender. Blend and drink immediately!

Enjoy and be well.
