Hidden Veggie Pumpkin Spice Protein Shake

October 13, 2014

Friday morning before going into work, I decided to stop at Smoothie King to purchase a protein shake. I like going there for wheatgrass shots so I decided to get breakfast as well. I noticed they had a Pumpkin Spice protein shake available. I did not know how good it would taste though. Nonetheless, I decided to try it.

I was shocked at how absolutely delicious it was! I wish I could go back everyday and purchase one, however, $8 protein shakes are not in my budget, so I had to improvise. Which is ideal anyway so I can make it healthier!

What you need:
  • 1 cup of protein powder (I use vanilla creme)
  • 1/2 cup of organic pumpkin
  • 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • A couple of dashes of Pumpkin Pie spice
  • 2 packets of Stevia
  • Handful of fresh spinach of kale

What you do:
  • Blend all ingredient in a blender or food processor. 

I made my protein shake today with two cups of spinach (I need to get my nutrients) so it was green, but you still could not taste it -- the delicious pumpkin taste prevailed! 


  1. oooo, yummy! I love everything pumpkin!

  2. I want I want! I made some delightfully delicious pumpkin shakes last year but haven't done it yet this year. I like trying new things too, so I will try your recipes as well. Thanks for sharing

  3. TASTY! Part of the new workout regimen I am doing requires a protein shake right before bed - and by golly george - this is going to be it!!!! Hahaha!

  4. What a great way to get some hidden veggies in!

  5. I love your make up- and you look fabulous as always,, plus the accessories look like million bucks- :-)

  6. You always have the best recipes and this is no different! I'm actually not a huge pumpkin fan but my best friend is so this will be passed along :)
