Pumpkin Protein Shake!

Why yes, the title is completely worthy of an exclamation. I will shout it from the rooftops, I love pumpkin-flavor things!

On my quest for all things pumpkin, I came across a few Pinterest recipes for pumpkin smoothies. And since I had pumpkin puree on hand and wanted to use up some of my protein powder, I decided to try a protein shake with pumpkin. What goes well with pumpkin? Well, besides everything, I’d say vanilla, cinnamon, banana, pumpkin pie spice…so I rounded up my pumpkin-loving ingredients, threw them in the blender, and voila. Pumpkin Protein Shake is officially born. It almosttt tasted like a pumpkin shake, only it didn’t taste quite as fattening delicious.

If you like pumpkin and are looking for a new fall protein shake, give this sucker a whirl.
Pumpkin Protein Shake


  • 1/2 can pumpkin puree
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 (or 1 full) packet of vanilla protein powder (I’m running low, so I only used a 1/2 packet)
  • 1 cup vanilla almond milk
  • Pumpkin pie spice
  • Cinnamon
  1. Blend ingredients until smooth, pour into glass, and enjoy!


Ready to blend!



What’s your favorite protein shake flava?
