pumpkin protein shake.

this shake is great to enjoy in the fall, but also tasty any time of year!




  • 1 cup of your favorite type of milk (i use unsweetened almond vanilla breeze)
  • 1 serving of vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 cup pure pumpkin
  • 1/2 TB cinnamon
  • 1/2 TB pumpkin pie spice 
  • splash of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/4 tsp guar gum
  • optional: sweetener of choice (agave, stevia, honey, etc)



throw all ingredients into your blender.


blend well.




this will make two BIG glassfuls, but you don’t have to share ;)

I make the same recipe except I use 1/2 cup of milk and 1/2 cup organic vanilla yogurt. No additional sweetner is needed since the yogurt is sweet. Lastly, like in all smoothies I add a handful of spinach which really boosts the nutrition and doesn’t change the tast at all!

Now that we know more about the gums….you think that would make it thicker?

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get setup?
I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations
or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos
