Protein Pumpkin Spice Coffee

What says “fall” more than pumpkin spice coffee?

Recently, I decided to try something different than the pumpkin spice coffee, so i added protein punch plus a sprinkle of my homemade pumpkin spice mix. If you’re not into protein powder (which is totally fine), you can make it without the protein. I recommend this blend for athletes or people doing performance-oriented training as a good pre-workout snack or something light if you train semi-fasted.
