Protein Pumpkin Spice Latte
Tis the season!
The pumpkin spice latte has become the backbone of the fall season. As a society we don’t even acknowledge fall until Starbucks brings back this sacred beverage.
And while we love the taste of fall just as much as anyone, when you check the nutrition facts, it starts to make sense why your pants are feeling a bit tighter.
It’s not just the overall calories that you need to look out for, it’s also the carbs and sugar that can really start to pack on the pounds. Check out the difference in macros between a “standard” PSL, a modified PSL, and our Protein PSL!
We’re all about balance and enjoying life, which is why sometimes you just want to real deal and that’s ok! But we also love healthify-ing our favorites so that we can have them more often and still keep our health and fitness goals on track.
This PSL is a perfect way to enjoy both. Cheers to fall!
3-5 minute prep | 2 minute clean-up
1/2 cup strong black coffee
3/4 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
1/2 scoop kbcc Vanilla Protein Powder
1/2 tsp coconut sugar (optional)
1/2 tsp cinnamon (add a dash or two more if you love cinnamon)*
Dash of ginger*
Dash of cloves*
Dash of nutmeg*
*You can also use 1 tsp of pre-made pumpkin spice mix instead
Combine all ingredients into a blender, blend together for ~10 seconds
Heat in microwave or on stove to desired drink temp.
Enjoy! (it’s really that easy! If you don’t have a blender, you can also use your shaker bottle or an egg whisk)
*Optional last step for slow drinkers… make sure you stir your latte occasionally as protein powder will eventually settle.
