Pumpkin Spice Protein Shake by Dr. Kehres

Saginaw chiropractor Dr. Dan Kehres loves protein and feels you should, too. Maybe you're bored with your protein shake choices. Here's a great way to zip up your shake, while adding protein to your diet. As with any eating plan, check with your doctor before you make any drastic changes in your diet.

The fall pumpkins are in. Pumpkin has a lot of potassium in it, which can help lower blood pressure and help reduce the risk of a stroke.

Great as a healthy, protein breakfast or the perfect snack for a fall day, try this Pumpkin Spice Protein Shake!
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder*
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/3 cup ice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp local honey
Mix in a blender and enjoy!

If you are a fan of Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte, try adding 1 scoop of instant coffee grounds and increasing the amount of almond milk (or coconut milk) to this recipe to make a pumpkin spice protein latte.

This recipe is dairy-free and gluten-free.
