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.
