When coffee shops start advertising their Pumpkin Spice Lattes, you know fall, and the endless array of seasonal treats, are back!
And our waistlines don’t thank us haha
That is why I always like having some healthy seasonal recipes to bust out, including the Pumpkin Spice PROTEIN Latte.
This is a great seasonal protein shake you can treat yourself to that won’t have the sugar and fat overload of the traditional variations.
So bring on the Pumpkin Spice!
Pumpkin Spice Protein Latte
12 oz cold-brewed coffee
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1-1/2 tbsp organic pumpkin puree
½ tsp pumpkin pie spice mix (can make the one below)
1 tsp honey
To make Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix:
1 tbsp nutmeg
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp ginger
1 tbsp cloves
1 tbsp all spice
First make the Pumpkin Spice Mix and save the rest for later. Add all of the other ingredients to a blender.
If you are less of a coffee fan, you can sub in some milk of choice for a few ounces of coffee.
Blend everything together with ice until mixed throughly and serve!
