Pumpkin Spice Protein Shake

Pumpkin pie smoothies have been done, but that doesn’t make them any less amazing. This is one of my favorite post-run meals, because it tastes like dessert (without being too sweet) and contains a nice balance of carbohydrate and protein.


1/2 cup pumpkin puree

1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)

1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use whey)

1 small banana

1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1 cup ice cubes (you can use less, but I like really thick smoothies)


Put everything into a blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy.

Makes 1 generous serving.
