Pumpkin Protein Shake - Fall Breakfast of Champions!

by Corey Carter

Most nutrition experts say to fill up with protein on your first meal of the day...it will help you to keep full longer. I'm a huge fan of pumpkin...anything!  If you are too, try this...you can use the generic vanilla protein powder you can get from your local Wal-Mart...or if you want to go high-grade try something from GNC or Complete Nutrition. Either way it tastes good!

1/8 Tsp vanilla

1/8 Tsp cinnamon

1/8 Tsp Nutmeg

1 1/2 scoops of vanilla protein powder

1/3c canned pumpkin (no salt)

8oz Almond or soy milk

6-7 Ice Cubes

Small handful of cashews (optional)

This will clock in somewhere in the neighborhood of 250 calories...and delicious!
