Pumpkin Spice Protein Smoothie ~ A sweet, healthy and delicious protein packed smoothie with all the flavors of a yummy pumpkin pie.
I have a slight feeling that I'm probably a bit late to the pumpkin party. But then again, maybe not. It is pumpkin season still and I just couldn't let it pass without sharing some delicious pumpkin recipes with you my lovely friends. So, here it goes!
When we think about pumpkins, probably the first thing that comes to mind is a yummy, sweet pumpkin pie. Am I right? So, what if you could enjoy all the deliciousness of this famous fall dessert in a smoothie? Better yet, what if it was a healthy version and then you won't feel any guilt about indulging?
Well, my friends, you are in luck because that is just what I have done here today. Behold the pumpkin spice protein smoothie!
This smoothie is a delicious combination of pumpkin, banana, almond milk, pumpkin pie spice, maple syrup and protein powder that will satisfy your Fall desserts sweet tooth without any guilt.
As you already know, I have my favorite protein powder. You know this because I have been working with them as a brand ambassador and have shared with you many other recipes using Kura. A couple of my favorites are: this Tropical Sunshine Smoothie and this Chocolate Chip Cookie Smoothie.
I promise you though that this Pumpkin Spice Protein Smoothie is just as tasty. So much so, that my son, who absolutely loves pumpkin pies and is extremely excited it is pumpkin season, drank a whole glass without taking a breath.
The best thing about Kura in my opinion is its flavor. Of all the protein powders I've tried, this one is by far the one I like the most because of its taste and for me flavor is very important. Because without a great tasting protein powder, a smoothie like this wouldn't be so yummy. Would it?
