This past week I have been completing various projects with multiple people at WVU Dining Services. I assisted with a safety and sanitation audit in the dining facility and helped with a catering event at the WVU President’s house and so much more. The project I decided to share with you all this week is a brief topic I covered for a series called “Nutrition Nuggets” that dining serves puts out for WVU students and staff a few times a month.
Also, in favor of fall traditions I have been searching for a HEALTHY pumpkin flavored drink to make and I think I finally found one! Now, I have yet to have a chance to get to the store to purchase pumpkin puree (or milk…) so I have yet to try it. Once I do, I will be sure to share my thoughts but if you beat me to it please share your comments (good or bad!). Original recipe can be found here.
Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
2 scoops vanilla chai protein powder
(or try 1 scoop chai tea mix and 1 scoop vanilla protein powder instead!)
1 cup of milk
Directions: Blend all ingredients together until desired consistency is reached!
