    I mean, what says fall more than pumpkin spice coffee? Recently, Food Babe blasted Starbucks for their fall favorite, the PSL (pumpkin spice latte), for its chemical-filled ingredients. I’ve never been a fan of the PSL, and a few years ago, I posted my own recipe for a homemade pumpkin spice latte right here on the blog.

    Recently, I decided to give the recipe a face lift and added a protein punch, plus a sprinkle of my homemade pumpkin spice mix. If you’re not into protein powder (which is totally fine), I recommend my original recipe (here’s that link again) or you can just omit. I recommend this blend for athletes or people doing performance-oriented training as a good pre-workout snack or something light if you train semi-fasted.

    1. I’ve never tried pumpkin mixed with coffee, but it certainly sounds interesting. Your pumpkin pie spice mix sounds excellent. My favorite pumpkin creation was a protein smoothie, and also pumpkin overnight oats, but the last time I tried them I was disappointed. Maybe I need to try them with your spice recipe?… 🙂

    2. OMG! I’ve been looking for a coffee/protein mix and this is UH-MAZING! Thank you so much for sharing! I love pumpkin so I knew I had to try it. I also added cinnamon 🙂

    3. Anyone have any thoughts on augmenting this with buttered coffee (Bulletproof, Caveman, whatevs)… or perhaps a better way to ask it, augmenting buttered coffee with this?

        1. Thanks, Steph. But I’m wondering more if there’s a way to combine the gloriousness of buttered, MCT-oiiled coffee and the above pumpkin-protein nirvana. Surely I could just start mixing stuff and hoping for the best, but I figured I’d run it by a paleo genius like you first. Love the blog… and the PDF… and your IG account, too. I’ve been using your IG acct. to convince my wife that she lift heavy, too, and still be… well, you know.

          1. Hi Tommy,

            You absolutely could. I would suggest using a high powered blender to emulsify your butter and oil fist then add the pumpkin, protein and spices. 🙂
