Fall is upon us and everyone seems to have their own variation of a pumpkin pie protein shake. All are worthy in my little opinion and all serve different purposes. Pumpkins are nutritionally a great food containing beta carotene and a whole host of vitamins and minerals. So pumpkin pie protein shakes with pureed pumpkin are a more than worthy choice.
Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake
The recipe I am sharing today is for a specific situation. Picture it, your life, and it’s eight-ish in the evening. You had a luncheon at work today and you went a little nutso with the potluck noodle dish. Your calories are this close to being too high and you still need a good dose of protein to bring your day into balance. The following variation of the pumpkin pie protein shake is for you!
This makes a great low-cal variation to any protein shake arsenal!
