Is anyone tired of pumpkin yet? (I think I’m hearing a few virtual no’s, which is great - because girl, have I got another delicious + nutritious pumpkin recipe for you!)
This Pumpkin Spice Latte Protein Smoothie is your very own at-home version of a Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Latte and because this recipe makes 2 servings, you have the option of sharing with a friend, cutting the recipe in half, or going all out and having the full Starbucks experience by imitating their Trenta option (no judgements here - the bigger, the better!).
It’s the perfect smoothie recipe if you are looking for a fall-inspired, holiday treat (while still making sure to get in your daily protein needs!). It makes for a great post-workout recovery drink or a killer easy-to-make breakfast option - with just enough caffeine to get your day started off right.
Whip cream and cinnamon sticks are optional, of course, but just like any fancy Starbucks drink, there’s never any harm in being a little extra! (We love being a little extra over here!!) ☺
There is absolutely nothing basic about this Pumpkin Spice Latte, but if you’re wanting a smoothie recipe that’s a little less “pumpkiny” (is that even a word?) - try my Iced Coffee Protein Smoothie.
I’m warning you, though - this might become your new fave protein smoothie recipe.
