Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake

A few weeks ago, I bought two 3.3-pound tubs of Cinnamon Graham Cracker whey protein from Groupon, thinking they’d be perfect for pumpkin pie protein shakes. And I was right!

Here’s what I put in it:

  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 1 scoop of Optimum Nutrition Cinnamon Graham Cracker Gold Standard Whey Protein
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon Truvia
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla pudding powder

I blended these all up in my NutriBullet. I love the NutriBullet – it pulverizes all these ingredients into a smooth drinkable shake.


This time of year, I’m all about the pumpkin. Pumpkin ravioli, pumkin pie, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin. And this protein shake tasted like pumpkin pie! But without having to bake or brave the crowds at CostCo. And without a mack ton of calories and sugar too.
This protein shake makes Chest, Shoulders & Triceps workout (aka The Most Humbling of all P90X Workouts) totally worth doing at 5am.



  1. I love LOVE pumpkin pie. Except it always throws me when folks add stuff like spinach to shakes!

  2. I’m an absolute pumpkin freak too!

  3. Hi Wendy, Thanks for stopping by a Pear Shaped Gal. I love new blogs that have the same interests as me .. makeup, fitness, nutrition etc. I have P90X and the Brazilian Butt Lift, but haven’t done a work out in .. well, forever. Ok, I did do the BBL in Aug before a trip to Hawaii 😉 but haven’t done it since (so lazy, well, mostly just tired when I come home from work). Anyway, I’ll look forward to your motivational posts .. maybe I can get back to those workouts.
