Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake

I have been drinking a variation of this pumpkin protein shake at my gym since before Thanksgiving -- and I adore it.  I finally decided that since my kitchen is (...it is a long story) finally half-complete -- the blender is coming back out.  

It's shake time.

  • 1-2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk  (30 calories per cup)
  • 1/4 cup real pumpkin puree 
  • 1 serving low-carb vanilla (... or cinnamon, oatmeal, coookie, the possibilities here are pretty endless...) flavored protein powder, any brand will do, low sugar, low carb!
  • cloves, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon to taste  or "pumpkin pie spice" would work, just a few shakes, less is more - to taste
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or sugar free maple syrup
  • Splenda or Stevia if needed
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • Crushed ice

1. Pour all ingredients into blender, blend.  

Enjoy.
