When colder weather hits, there's only ONE thing on my mind... I have a feeling you might relate... And that ONE thing is... PUMPKIN FREAKING SPICE EVERYTHING!!!!
The issue I have with MOST pumpkin spice things, is that they're CHOCK full of sugar and saturated fat.
And since sugar is our arch nemesis, it poses an issue...
Sugar is literally THE enemy, as it: causes acne, throws our hormones out of whack (specifically insulin), makes us gain weight, have mood swings and have an energy crash midday.
Sugar is like that one super annoying friend who always breaks something when they come over. After awhile, you just don't want to bring them around anymore. ANYWAYS, the answer to all my (and your) pumpkin spice woes has been answered and since I love you, I wanted to let you in on the action...
That answer?? VEGAN PUMPKIN SPICE SUPERFOOD SMOOTHIES FOR EVERYONE!!!!!
I know, I know.
You're thinking, "but Marie, how in the h-e-doublehockeystick can anything taste as delightfully satisfying as a grande PSL and not have a bunch of sugar and milk in it?!"
Read on, mi amiga!
To answer ALL your potential questions, here's the LO DOWN on why you should use vegan shakeology to make your superfood pumpkin spice smoothies (or treats) from now on.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A STARBUCKS PSL AND PUMPKIN SPICE SHAKEOLOGY SUPERFOOD SMOOTHIE?? Okay first of all, a Grande PSL (16oz) from Starbucks contains 50 grams of sugar!!!!!!!!!! 380 calories and 13 grams of fat (8 of them saturated). Like what?! Gross! (Just for reference, the recommended daily intake of sugar for an adult female is 24 grams.... See ya later health and fitness efforts and hello sugar addiction and weight gain!!)
Vegan Pumpkin Spice Shakeology, meanwhile, is a rich and creamy vegan shake featuring the same awesome notes of pumpkin spice but with ALL THE HEALTH BENEFITS!!
And for all you macronutrient counters, vegan shakeology yields only 8grams of sugar (from real fruit and vegetables, NOT corn syrup), 17grams of vegan protein (a blend of 7 different plants) and only 181 calories for the same 16oz serving. We're talking a potent blend of vegan proteins, pre and probiotics, digestive enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. No need to stop by the coffeehouse for a sugar-loaded calorie bomb this year! You can just blend your own up instead! Did I mention it'll cost you less too?? WIN FRIGGIN' WIN!
WHY IS PUMPKIN SPICE SHAKEOLOGY BETTER? Okay, so besides the aforementioned saved sugar, calories, money and added nutrient density, shakeology will actually help you BUILD a foundation of health (with phytonutrients) instead of destroy it (with sugar). ESPECIALLY during cold and flu and stress season when everyone's immune systems are susceptible to the bugs floating around, drinking shakeology every day actually helps to BOOST IMMUNITY so sayonara pre-holidays sicknesses!! Best of all? You can drink shakeology every single day!!
I personally blend mine as a smoothie for breakfast! It helps me start my day right, gives me energy, rights my digestion and I don't crash mid-morning from having had a bunch of sugar for breakfast!
Plus, Pumpkin Spice Shakeology has all the flavours of Fall you love so much — warm cinnamon, spicy nutmeg, and ginger — which makes it a no-brainer when you want a sinfully delicious treat without any of the guilt.
And like all Shakeology flavours, Pumpkin Spice Shakeology is the result of thousands of hours of research and formulation, a no-compromise approach, and world-class quality assurance. You know you’re getting a superior supplement here.
