Healthy Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

Healthy Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

Happy Saturday Night! I plan on spending mine in front of the television with a pumpkin pie milkshake in hand while I binge watch crime investigation shows. Ahh… the perfect Saturday night!

This unbelievably low calorie milkshake was made using Arctic Zero frozen dessert but you can replace it with any low calorie ice cream that you prefer. I also recommend Halo Top if you don’t mind dairy.

Pumpkin Hummus – Dip it or Spread it!

Pumpkin Hummus – Dip it or Spread it!

It’s only the beginning of September and I’ve already made quit a few posts using Fall flavors and I’m not about to stop. Today I had a hankering for a sweet pumpkin dip. I wanted it to be light and fluffy – not too dense so I opted out of grinding up nuts and using that as a base. Finally, I landed on BEANS (sorry to all my paleo followers) and made the most epic pumpkin hummus protein dip or spread…

Healthy Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Donuts

Healthy Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Donuts

Do you love pumpkin?  Of course, you do. Who doesn’t?  Seriously, I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone that doesn’t love pumpkin.

 

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a total basic girl and when September rolls around, it’s pumpkin spice everything for me! I literally cannot get enough of it so today I made pumpkin donuts. They are healthy, of course and made with protein powder and whole food ingredients.


Pumpkin-Donuts     Pumpkin-Donuts3     Pumpkin-Donuts2

They are perfect just as they are without any icing or cinnamon sugar. I had one like this and dipped it in my coffee… OMG. TO DIE FOR!

Dipping them in a cinnamon sugar mix is not such a bad idea either!

Using Snickerdoodle flavored protein powder tastes the best when baking with pumpkin. Although, a simple vanilla flavor will work, I highly recommend SNICKERDOODLE PEScience Select Protein! Get 30% OFF all PEScience products by using code PBCHOCO.
