Ingredients

Pumpkin Spice Latte Whey Protein Option

  • 2 scoops Pumpkin Spice Latte Whey Protein Powder Perfect Sport's Diesel
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 1/2 cup ice CAUTION: only 1/2 cup goes into the blender! Read instructions.
  • 1/4 cup avocado about 1/2 of a small one
  • 4 oz espresso coffee freshly brewed (liquid)
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar OPTIONAL

Optional Toppings

  • 3 tbsp whipped cream
  • 1 pinch pumpkin spice

Vanilla Whey Protein Option (If you can't find the Pumpkin Spice flavor)

  • 2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder Perfect Sport's Diesel
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 1/2 cup ice
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 4 oz espresso coffee freshly brewed (liquid)
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Instructions

  1. Chill the Coffee. Pour 4 oz espresso into a large cup (I used my frothing pitcher, you could also use a bar shaker). Add about 1 cup ice to the cup and mix vigorously for 10-15 seconds, or until the espresso is cold. Separate the coffee from the ice. Add the cold coffee to your blender. You may keep the ice to add it to your protein shake afterward or discard it. (This whole step is not necessary if the coffee is already cold)

  2. Blending it All Together. Add 3/4 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup ice, 1/4 cup avocado, 2 scoops pumpkin spice whey, and 1 tsp coconut sugar to the blender container. Blend for 30-35 seconds at full speed or until very smooth.

  3. Serve. Serve immediately in a large mug or shaker bottle. You may (or may not) add the ice from step 1 to your mug (as preferred, I personally did). Optional: Top with some whipped cream (You may use a piping bag) and sprinkle some pumpkin spice or ground cinnamon on top.

  4. Store. May be stored in the fridge in a sealed container (like a mason jar) for up to 24 hours.
