Are you one of those people that go absolutely nuts for pumpkin spice??
Have no fear, because Justin Janoska is here with a Pumpkin Protein Power Shake that's quite a bit better for you than hitting Starbucks! Ha!
Here's what he says:
If you’re bored with your current protein shake formula, then perhaps now is a good time to spice things up. Since Halloween is approaching I thought I’d share with you my own delicious protein shake concoction with a seasonal October twist….
I call it my Pumpkin Protein Power Shake.
It’s low-calorie, low-carb & high-protein!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 scoop of vanilla whey protein (Roughly 25g)
7.5 oz. of canned pumpkin (Half of a typical 15 oz. can)
8 oz. (1 cup) of non-dairy almond milk (Reduce to ¾ of a cup for more thickness)
1 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of nutmeg
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
Low calorie sweetener (Optional)
1/2 cup of ice
Blend all of the ingredients until you are satisfied with the texture.
This shake turns an ordinary protein shake into a nutritiously fortified monster that has a great source of minerals like iron, magnesium, potassium and calcium. It’s also loaded with a ton of beta-carotene, a precursor for Vitamin A (hence, the orange color of pumpkin), plus vitamin D & E!
Drink this for post-workout recovery or as a midday snack!
The nutrition breakdown is as follows: (Depending on the protein and milk you use, these numbers can vary slightly)
Protein: 28 g
Carbs: 23 g
Hope you enjoy it Fitperez and Happy Halloween!!
