Good morning.

I'm excited to share one of my favorite indulgences (which is a healthy indulgence) that I make during my week.  I like to make this shake for myself for breakfast when Bobby is out of town or for a post workout protein treat/snack.  It was wonderful ingredients of pumpkin, protein, almond butter, and hemp seeds.  I think you'll enjoy it...

breakfast pumpkin & spice protein shake

Makes roughly four cups

1 handful of ice

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

1 TBSP  almond butter

1/3 cup pumpkin puree

1 TBSP hemp seeds

1/8 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp blackstrap molasses (or maple syrup if paleo)

a drop of almond extract

water

Add all of the ingredients to the blender.  Then add enough water to cover 2/3 of the ingredients in the blender.  Blend for 1-2 minutes depending on the power of your blender.  Pour into your glass and garnish with hemp seeds and a cinnamon stick as a straw.

This recipe really is intended for one person--two tall glasses per recipe-- for a meal replacement or awesome post workout.  It is absolutely filling and satisfying for one person, but you could always share. :)
