Christmas has come early for us this year! Mom went ahead and ordered us an early Christmas present, something I’ve been wanting for a long time…a beautiful, top of the line Vitamix blender.
I’ve only used it a few times so far, but it makes the smoothest smoothies of all time. I can’t wait to use it for soups and other goodies all winter long.
In honor of my new toy, I’m reposting my favorite Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake recipe for you. Enjoy!
Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake
1/2 frozen banana (I pre-slice my bananas before freezing for easy blending)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling – just plain pumpkin)
1 cup milk of your choice (I use plain almond milk to keep calories and sugar down)
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1-inch piece of ginger, roughly chopped
Very generous dashes of cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice
Blend it all together, and enjoy!
