Pumpkin Spice Collagen Frappuccino
If you love pumpkin spice, but are in the mood for a cool treat with a protein boost, then look no further! This homemade frappuccino won't let you down. It's cold, creamy and bursting with flavor, plus the added benefits of collagen.
- Begin your pumpkin adventure by gathering all your ingredients.
In a blender, combine milk, strong chilled coffee or espresso, the scoop of collagen, pumpkin pie spice, sweetener of choice, vanilla extract, and that glorious canned pumpkin puree.
(Feel free to choose your milk of choice; we opted for whole milk, but almond milk or any non-dairy alternative works just as wonderfully).
Sweeten to Taste: Add your preferred sweetener to achieve your desired level of sweetness. Remember, the sweetness can vary depending on your choice of sweetener, so taste and adjust accordingly.
Blend away until the ingredients swirl together into a creamy masterpiece.
Now, here's where you control the texture of your frappuccino. Add one to two cups of ice to the blender, depending on your preference.
A little less ice if you like it smoother, a little more if you prefer it frostier.
Blend until your frappuccino reaches that perfect, luscious thickness. Be cautious not to over-blend; we want it thick but still pourable.
With your frosty concoction all set, it's time to pour it into a tall, inviting glass. This recipe will yield 1-2 servings depending on the size of your glass.
The grand finale is the whipped cream topping! While optional, it's what takes your Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino from great to extraordinary.
Once you crown your drink with a generous swirl of whipped cream, add an extra dash of autumn love by sprinkling a bit of pumpkin pie spice over the top.
Grab a cozy blanket or pull up a chair by the fire – this cold beverage is best enjoyed with a side of warmth and comfort. Sip, relax, and enjoy the flavors of fall!
* Sweetener options:
Allulose, organic stevia, organic maple syrup, honey, or coconut sugar.
Note: When adding dairy to collagen, you make it a complete protein. So why not try this in the morning in place of your traditional smoothie? You may also want to try Yonder's Vanilla Collagen in this recipe. It has the added benefits of MCT oil, pea protein and has zero sugar. It is sweetened with stevia, so no need to add additional sweeteners unless desired.
So there you have it! A homemade Pumpkin Spice Collagen Frappuccino that's not only a breeze to make, but also the perfect companion for those crisp, autumn days and chilly evenings.
Cheers to the season of pumpkin spice and everything nice!
