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
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. :)
