Fall is in the air… the leaves are changing colors, temperatures are cooling off, wardrobes are being reorganized, football is being played, and of course, your local coffee shop is brewing pumpkin spice lattes — a surefire sign that fall is definitely here.
But let’s face it, with over 400 calories and 50 grams of sugar in the average pour, we probably don’t need to remind you that pumpkin spice lattes are sugar bombs filled with empty calories.
That’s why our team has been working on brewing up something that combines all the Fall flavors you crave while still being super nutritious so you can support your goals of looking and feeling your best.
That’s right, now you can literally have your (pumpkin) pie and eat it too with our delicious Pumpkin Spice Protein Smoothie!
Pumpkin Spice Protein Smoothie
- 2 scoops BioTrust Low Carb Protein (Vanilla Cream flavor)
- ¾ cup milk or dairy alternative*
- ¼ cup pumpkin purée
- ½ banana, frozen
- ½ – 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- Ice (as needed)
Simply add all the ingredients in a blender, blend until smooth, and enjoy this delicious ice-cream-like shake, which will satisfy your sweet, seasonal hankering with only 250 calories and just 10 grams of sugar (80% less than a PSL!) — and 25 grams of protein.
Chef Tip: If you want more of a traditional latte, simply use 6 ounces of brewed coffee (and 2 ounces of milk) and nix the banana and ice. Now we’re talking about 180 calories and only 3 grams of sugar.
While cutting out added sugar is a key step, the game-changing ingredient in our pumpkin spice protein smoothie recipe is the addition of BioTrust Low Carb Protein powder, which:
- Comes from healthy, happy, pasture-raised cows that are grass-fed.
- Features a multi-protein blend that is perfect to use any time of day to support a healthy metabolism, zap cravings, help keep you feeling full longer, and fuel results.
- Is carefully cold-processed to ensure the highest quality protein.
- Is FREE from junk, that means NO GMOs, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, artificial ingredients, or other potentially harmful compounds (like BPA).
- Is third-party tested to ensure purity and potency
- Best of all, tastes absolutely delicious — just like an ice cream shake but without all the empty calories and added sugar!
Cheers to Fall and a Better, Healthier You,
