Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake

Yesterday, I was busy studying for a test and was feeling less than motivated. Hence the absence of a Motivated Monday post. In an effort to make up for that, I thought I'd share this super simple post workout breakfast. This delicious protein shake recipe is perfect for the fall!

1/2 cup pumpkin puree (frozen)
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 small banana (peeled and frozen)
1/2- 1 cup almond milk (or low fat milk of choice)
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder

Blend all ingredients together until smooth. After I took the photo, I blended spinach and almond milk and added that to the pumpkin blend. It was the perfect addition of extra vitamins and fiber, but made the shake brown so I decided to photograph the pumpkin smoothie alone. The spinach does not change the flavor. Trust me on this one! It is a perfect post workout breakfast that weighs in at 373 calories, 47g of protein, and 48g of carb. 

What's your favorite post workout breakfast?
