IMG_6156

This drink was inspired by Michelle Money’s (Bachelor, Bachelor Pad) youtube channel MMandLshow. Check out her and Laura’s videos. They are awesome!! After they suck you in for a few hours you may come back and thank me.

Here’s their recipe copied exactly from their site:
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup plain pumpkin purée
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
3 Truvia Packets
1.5 tsp pumpkin pie spice
10oz brewed coffee

Blend all ingredients and serve over ice or heat up in microwave for 45 seconds.

I tried it their way and then changed 1 thing and it was SO MUCH BETTER!! I used Shaklee’s cafe latte shake mix instead of the vanilla protein mix. Delish!! No, I don’t sell Shaklee. No, I don’t get any cashola from saying that the cafe latte mix was better. Frankly, I just prefered it. I think you would too.

Make this delicious low calorie PSL, sit back and enjoy!!

Very appropriate that my first blog post is an alcoholic beverage, but hey raspberries are in season and I have all this spearmint from my garden that I need to use so it just makes sense. This drink is so tasty and low in calories to boot!!! Ingredients:

  • spearmint (about 8 leaves)
  • raspberries (about 8)
  • 1 lime
  • 2 packets of sun crystals (5 calorie sweetener)
  • 1.5 ounces of Rum (I used Bacardi)
  • diet white soda (I used diet Sierra Mist)

In a tall glass muddle about 8 mint leaves with the juice of 1 lime. IMG_5667

Add 5-6 raspberries and muddle again. IMG_5668

Fill glass with ice. Add sun crystals, rum, and soda. Garnish with raspberries, mint, and lime. Enjoy!!
