Pumpkin Protein Frappe

You might not get a coach out of these pumpkins, but a protein frappe is still pretty magical, and it tastes amazing!

As autumn rolls around, the flavors are as important as the season: cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, apples, and pumpkins. Changing of leaves and wrapping ourselves in scarves and warmer jackets are just the beginning of this gorgeous and crisp season. Pumpkins are everywhere, and Thanksgiving is around the corner, so why not utilize these magical root vegetables to the best of our ability? There are so many local farms where you can pick your own pumpkins, sit on hay rides, and enjoy the crisp air. This is the perfect way to utilize in-season vegetables and fruits by keeping them local. This pumpkin protein shake is not only super delicious, but it's also packed full of nutrients and protein to keep you energized and happy the entire day.

For this recipe, we use organic canned pumpkin. You can find this at your local health food store. This recipe calls for lucuma powder which adds a delicious caramel and nutty flavor to desserts and drinks. It is made out of the lucuma fruit which is dehydrated into a powder. It contains many elements that aids in overall health such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Lucuma is also a great source of iron which can result in increased energy levels. One of the best things about lucuma is that it adds sweetness to any dessert without increasing your blood sugar levels. {94dkuxn7}
