Trying Something New

I'm a huge fan of a certain coffee chain that offers fabulous espresso-laced smoothies, and I miss the offerings of the holidays where you'll find creamy, wonderous drinks enhanceded with mint, pumpkin, and spices.  All of these yummy things are blended well with sugar, milk, coffee, and topped off with a dollop of whipped cream.  Those were the days... but I must remind you, those were the drinks that allowed me to be where I am today.

This morning, I'm trying something new.  I added some pumpkin, and pumpkin spice, and protein to my decaf this morning, and it's not half bad.  I whooshed it in the blender for a few minutes to get a nice consistency.  I think it needs a little bit of SF sweetner like Stevia, but it really is pretty good.  You know I will go to any length to add protein to my diet so this a great way.  I've been having a protein shake for breakfast since my tummy is still a little sensitive, so for me, the shakes and the Max Protein have worked well.

Try something new today.  Add some protein to your yogurt, or try a blended drink with some protein added.  You never know what you'll end up enjoying!
