Pumpkin Shake filled with protein to help curb hunger and satisfy your sweet tooth.
Hey friends! I’m headed to Utah tomorrow, which means things have been a little busy this past week. With the Easter holiday, packing, and trying to squeeze in every minute with the kids during their spring break I’m almost certain I’ll want to sleep in the hotel the entire trip. With the busy schedule I’ve been relying on protein shakes to get me through the day. As I’ve mentioned before I drink protein shakes/smoothies everyday, especially protein green smoothies. Today I’m sharing a recipe that’s a little different from my usual green smoothie. This protein pumpkin shake is currently my go-to recipe. You’re probably thinking pumpkin … really? Why yes I do love pumpkin during the fall but it’s also great to enjoy throughout the year. Today I’m sharing a pumpkin shake that’s packed with protein and nutrients to help curb hunger and satisfy your sweet tooth.
There are many reasons why I enjoy using Libby’s Pumpkin throughout the year, not only do I love the flavor but the health benefits are great in sweet and savory dishes. As a superfood pumpkin is known for being a good source of fiber, vitamin A, and can help reduce fat and calories in your favorite recipes. Pumpkin is also versatile as a year round vegetable, great for keeping on hand to stir into sauces, oatmeal, and of course smoothies.
