I stole this way-too-yummy shake recipe off the Instagram account of my good friend (and fellow fitness junkie), Kacey Luvi. If you?re not a fan of protein shakes, I beg you to please try this one?you won?t regret it!

As Kacey said, ?Fall and fitness have never tasted so good.? Mmmm?she’s right. Even better? It is the perfect Low Carb shake for those Carb Cycling.

Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake – serves 1

Ingredients:

2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2-3 tablespoons pumpkin puree
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
3-4 shakes each of cloves, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed

Instructions:

1. Pour all ingredients into a blender.
2. Add ice and blend to experience healthy heaven in your mouth. 🙂

Nutritional information: Each serving has 236 incredibly healthy calories, 23 grams of protein, 10 grams of carbs, and 12 grams of fat.

Thank you, Kacey!

Xoxo,

Heidi

  1. What kind of protein powder is best? The Oatmeal cookie sounds amazing but no sure what brand is best/cleanest.

    1. For protein powder, each scoop should generally be an average of 20 grams of protein and under 5 grams of carbs. Make sure you pay attention to the nutrition label as some serving sizes are for 2 scoops.

  3. I have been doing this and bringing it on the go instead of paying for a coffee at a shop. Its so yummy and I also add cinnamon. Perfect for fall! Btw, have also been making the homemade granola bars to save money and to know what ingrediants are in what I eat (ones at the store are full or so much garbage) and they are so delicious. You and your husband have inspired my fiance and I to live a healthier and positive life!
