After my run the other day, I thought, “Hey! Why not whip up a pumpkin pie protein shake!”
I had canned pumpkin in my pantry so I thought I would give it a go. After a few trial and errors, I got the perfect combination of pumpkin, spice and everything nice.
Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake
Weight Watchers Points Plus: 5 points plus (if you DO NOT count the pumpkin – 6 if you do!)
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (I used Designer Whey)
1 cup lowfat milk (could use any kind of milk – adjust Weight Watchers points accordingly)
1 Tablespoon Fat Free/Sugar Free Cheesecake Pudding Powder
3 Tablespoons Canned Pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Handful of Ice
Put milk, protein powder, pudding powder, pumpkin pie spice and canned pumpkin in a blender.
Blend until combined. Add ice and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
**Optional – Top with a dollop of fat free cool whip and a sprinkle of lowfat graham cracker crumbs.
Close your eyes and you will swear that you are drinking a piece of pumpkin pie. It is so yummy! Enjoy!
