Ingredients
  

Frap

  • 1/4 cup frozen pumpkin puree
  • 1/2-1 frozen banana *See Notes for subs
  • 1 - 1 1/4 cups plant-based milk
  • 1 serving vanilla protein powder
  • 1-2 tbsp cashew butter **See Notes
  • 1-2 tbsp ground flax seeds (optional)
  • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup or 2 dates, if not using banana ***See notes
  • 1 1/2-2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

whip

  • 1/2 cup canned coconut milk Refrigerated
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Instructions
 

  • The Night before: Add the pumpkin purée to an ice cube tray & place in the freezer, to form pumpkin cubes. I also do this with canned coconut milk, to make the drink extra thick and creamy, but this is totally optional.

Coconut Whip

  • To make the whip, add the coconut cream to a large bowl & beat with an electric beater until fluffy. Then add the remaining ingredients & beat again. Place in a mason jar or baggie & let sit in the fridge until ready to use.

Frap

  • Blend all the frap ingredients together until smooth. Taste and adjust as you'd like. Pour into your glass. Top with the coconut whip & enjoy!

Notes

*If you don't want to use banana, you can sub in frozen coconut milk cubes (or other plant based milk cubes). This will help the drink be super thick and creamy.
**You can sub any nut or seed butter for the cashew! I would just advise not using peanut butter as that alters the taste of the drink.
***If you aren't using banana in the recipe, I'd suggest adding a little maple syrup, honey, or 2 chopped dates. This will help add some sweetness to the recipe, but is also totally optional if your protein powder is sweet!
