Pumpkin Spice Shake (S or FP)

Pumpkin is one of my favorite flavors and foods to use in the Fall and Winter time.  Hey, I even use it in the months we aren’t supposed to think about it.  Shhh.  I guess pumpkin is technically a fruit, but often treated like a veggie.  I’m sure the pumpkin is confused! Pumpkin is FULL of good stuff.  It’s high in Vitamin A and Zinc. Only one cup of pumpkin has about 3 grams of fiber. It’s also wonderful because it’s said to help keep a person feeling full for longer!  The super cool fact that one cup contains no fat and only 50 calories is a gift to a Trim Healthy Mama!  That is one amazing, God-created, power food!

pumpkinspiceshake2I may be wrapped in a blanket, but I still enjoy my protein shakes when it’s chilly outside!  I usually make up my own recipe or just throw things together when it comes to my shakes, but today I thought I’d try to write down my favorite, favorite pumpkin shake for you.  I hope you enjoy it like I do.  I know there are many pumpkin shakes out there, but why not another?

Ingredients:
1 cup unsweetened cashew milk  (you can use another on plan Fuel Pull milk)
1/2 cup water
1/2 Tbs THM Sweet Blend or 1 Tbs Truvia (use sweetener of your choice)
3 Tbs Pumpkin (only pumpkin, not pie filling)
1/4 cup of 1-2% cottage cheese
1/8 tsp maple flavoring
1/2 tsp vanilla
dash high mineral sea salt
cinnamon (two shakes..might be about 1/4 tsp)
nutmeg (small dash)
clove (small dash)
1 Tbs heavy whipping cream (for S shake)
7 ice cubes (how I prefer it)
Instructions:
I place all the ingredients except the ice in the blender or in my Ninja.  I zoom it up for about 20 seconds.   I then add 7 ice cubes and process again until it’s well blended.  This makes 2-2&1/2 cups of pure yumminess! I drink it for breakfast or for a snack.  You could even do a halfie or share with someone for dessert.
FP Note:  If you want to make a Fuel Pull shake, just leave out the Heavy Whipping Cream. I don’t think just leaving in 1 tsp would make a big difference, but you can if you want too. That makes it a great shake to eat with any Fuel Type on the THM plan!  Yippee!
