recipe notes and tips

  • Ideally, opt for a good quality protein powder that is minimally processed, and doesn’t have a lot of added sugar.
  • Use unsweetened almond milk, it’s low in calories and high in vitamins and minerals, it also gives a good consistency.
  • If you find your smoothie to be too sweet, add a splash of lemon juice.
  • Natural sweeteners like honey and pure maple syrup are great for upping the sweetness.

What is whey protein?

Whey is a protein that is isolated from whey, which is found in milk, and separates from milk when the cheese is made. Whey protein comes in different flavors and is added to smoothies as a tasty nutritional boost. Also, this Pumpkin Smoothie uses vanilla whey, which works great with all the fall flavors in the smoothie!

How to store smoothies?

Make this Pumpkin Spice Protein Smoothie the night before and stored it in the fridge for the next day. Ideally, add a bit of frozen fruit to the mixture and reblend before drinking for it to taste its best.
Also, as this uses whey protein powder, store your smoothie in a glass container, because the plastic is absorbent and could take on a strange smell if left sitting containing the mix.
