Decadent Chocolate Pumpkin High Protein Shake

This high protein shake is so yummy you'll forget it's a meal replacement and will think you're having dessert. Chocolate and pumpkin together. Mmmmmm.
Servings 1

Ingredients

  • 8 oz . almond milk (I use unsweetened vanilla. Unsweetened is a key to having a low sugar result.) (You can also sub regular milk if you don't mind dairy.)
  • 2 scoops Orgain Chocolate Protein Powder (anything else may not be gluten- or dairy-free or low sugar.)
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin (NOT pie filling, just pumpkin)
  • 1 Tablespoon flaxseed meal (for texture and added protein -- but it could probably be omitted in a pinch)
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil (because good fat is good for you, and it makes the shake nice and smooooooth)
  • 1/2 FROZEN banana
  • generous shake of pumpkin pie spice

Instructions

  1. I just put it all in a blender and hit the button for the highest setting. Keep it going for a little while until the graininess from the protein powder goes away.
