This afternoon I wanted a delicious, filling snack and found myself about to scrounge around in the kitchen. Since I’m trying to eat clean this week I knew that even though I wanted to raid the candy stash I should throw something together that would satisfy my sweet tooth without sending me into a sugar binge downward spiral.
I got the idea to make a pumpkin spice frappuccino since I figured something with a little caffeine couldn’t hurt either
Protein Packed Pumpkin Spice Frappe
6 ice cubes
1 cup milk of your choice
1 serving chocolate protein powder
1 tsp instant coffee granules (you could also use 1/2 coffee, 1/2 milk if you don’t have this)
1/4c canned pumpkin
a few hearty shakes of pumpkin pie spice
optional: extra sweetener, dash of salt, toppings
If you have whipped crème that would make this extra fun and fancy. Tip: shake some nutmeg on top and impress your friends!

Question: Need some motivation / encouragement OR are you on a roll this week?
