On our road trip last month, the Godfather and I stopped at a rest stop somewhere along the highway to grab a coffee to share. I don’t remember the highway, nor the exact coffee shop. What I do remember is the different take on the classic pumpkin spice latte that we tried! I am not a pumpkin spice latte lover – one a year and I’m good. I’m more a salted caramel mocha girl in the Fall if you were wondering. Nevertheless, while waiting in line for coffee, I spied the feature drink being offered, a pumpkin spice mocha, and I was curious. We tried it, and it was fabulous! I think the tiny hint of chocolate with the coffee and pumpkin spice really made the latte special. We must use these flavors and make other tasty things, yes?

At home, I keep 1-2 flavors of protein powder around for quick meals and the occasional post workout recovery drink. The latter applied more for long runs when I didn’t have hard boiled eggs and chocolate milk (with homemade syrup!). Only a few more months until I’m cleared to start working out “for real” again! I think I’ve been doing a pretty good job staying active this pregnancy though, so that’s an improvement over my first. Anyway, back to pumpkin spice mocha protein smoothies…

I have a bottle of mocha protein powder, which I spied in the pantry, and the light bulb moment happened that inspired this recipe. Add a little real pumpkin for extra fiber and fall goodness, and voila! My favorite autumn pumpkin spice beverage got a whole “latte” healthier. 😉 Enjoy, darlings!
