5 Fall-flavored shakes to help you get more protein

Pumpkin, pumpkin everywhere. 'Tis the season for all-things pumpkin spice so I thought I'd share a few delicious, fall-inspired shake recipes. I find people frequently struggle with consuming enough protein so what better way to increase your protein intake all while enjoying some sweet, pie-like shakes! The calories and macronutrients are based on the ingredients I used so your shake nutrition info may vary slightly.

Being that all of these shakes look pretty similar once they're blended, I'll spare you the same boring photo ;)
