Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spice Protein Smoothie
Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spice Protein Smoothie – the name says it all! A creamy smoothie with REAL pumpkin and over 20 grams of protein per serving!
Happy pumpkin flavored everything season!!
I mean, fall. Happy fall!
Since today is the official first day of fall AND Friday (TGIF!), what better way to celebrate than with a pumpkin smoothie that tastes like a milkshake?!
Even better? This Peanut Butter Pumpkin Spice Protein Smoothie has lots of protein (talking over 20 grams of protein per serving!) and healthy fats (peanut butter, love you forever) to keep ya feeling full.
Here’s what you need to make it:
The 7-ingredient line up includes milk of choice (I prefer unsweetened almond or cashew milk, banana, pumpkin puree, peanut butter, greek yogurt, collagen, and pumpkin pie spice.
Everything goes for a whirl in the blender…
And you get this super pretty pumpkin hued smoothie!
And check out the creamy texture! Greek yogurt and frozen bananas add the dreamiest milkshake consistency to smoothies.
You could throw in a regular, room temp banana, but I highly recommend using frozen.
I ALWAYS have a stash of peeled bananas in my freezer. I freeze them whenever they turn spotty (if I’m not baking with them) or buy an extra bunch for freezing at the start of the week. That way, you can always be prepared for lots of smoothies and nice cream! 😊
I topped my smoothie with extra peanut butter, pumpkin pie spice, and pumpkin spice granola (my favorite is Michele’s). Toppings are optional, but always recommended.
Happy fall, y’all!
