Protein Packed Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

Does anyone remember this?

Well it just got better.

Much better…..

Loving pumpkin is admittedly a requirement for this recipe. But it’s just melt in your mouth good.  It’s a good time to make it too because a) it’s sort-of-almost fall BUT b) it’s still not that cold outside. Therefore a cold pumpkin drink that tastes like dessert sounds like the perfect option for a light breakfast or afternoon snack.

Warning: it’s delicious and you may need to refrain from finishing it in under 5 minutes. Seriously.
