I decided to experiment with the Boring Ol' Protein Shake thing after this morning's training. I don't do protein shakes all the time, but sometimes I do, and quite frankly, they suck. So I decided to experiment. It actually came out pretty well, so I thought I'd share it for those of you who are looking for new breakfast ideas.
VEGAN PUMPKIN PIE PROTEIN POWER SHAKE (makes two servings)
2 scoops vanilla vegan protein powder (I used Proventive Harmonized Vegan Protein)
2 servings (check package) of vegan creatine powder
1 can organic, unsweetened pumpkin
Unsweetened flax milk (my new nondairy milk love-- I just estimated what I'd need for two glasses of shake)
A heaping tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice (full of all kinds of great spices that help lower blood sugar, raise antioxidant levels, help digestion, and more)
2 big tablespoons of raw cacao powder
2 packets of stevia, or to taste
Throw it all in the blender. Drink with a spoon (it's thick!!)
Hope you like it!
