Holiday Protein Shake

Holiday Themed Protein Shakes

Yesterday after my workout I opened the pantry, saw a can of pumpkin puree and decided to see what it would taste like in a protein shake. To my delight, it was amazing– & it inspired me to search for more ways to get the flavors of the season without the calories. Below I have listed 4 protein shake recipes for your to enjoy. These would be a great option for a quick breakfast or a tasty treat any time of day.  Hope you enjoy these recipes for the holiday season! I would love to hear your feedback.
