Protein Shake Recipes: Pumpkin Yumminess

I had a message from Bob Marley this morning. As I was making this yummy protein shake for breakfast. I glanced out my kitchen window onto the patio and see three little birds which immediately causes me to start singing...

Three Little Birds

Singin' "Don't worry 'bout a thing,
'Cause every little thing gonna be all right"

Rise up this mornin',
Smiled with the risin' sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin', "This is my message to you-ooo-ooo"

I've been in a bit of a funk and questioning my place in the world so I'm taking this as a sign. "Don't worry 'bout a thing, 'Cause every little thing gonna be all right." Message received. Thanks Bob.

So I quit worrying, went outside, sat in the sunshine and enjoyed this delicious taste of fall. It's like a liquid pumpkin pie. Seriously. Sooooo good.

8 oz. Soy Milk (or 4 oz milk/4 oz. water)
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
3 T. Pumpkin Puree (not pie filling)
1/2 Banana, frozen (or fresh)
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Torani Syrup (SF Vanilla, Caramel, Pumpkin Pie would all work)
dash Pumpkin Pie Spice
2-3 Ice Cubes

Blend in blender. Place liquids in blender first. Optional: Top with a squirt of SF Land o Lakes Whipped Cream, a dash of pumpkin pie spice.

I love to use frozen banana in this. I peel them, cut them in half, and toss them in a Ziploc baggie for adding to protein shakes & smoothies. Makes the shake colder and creamier. It's also a good way to save bananas when they are getting too ripe.
