Paleo Coffee Pumpkin Spice Shake

Pumpkin spice shake recipe & content provided by Joshua Weissman

This pumpkin spice shake is an amazing paleo-friendly recipe for anyone on the move. Since I’m constantly working, sometimes I’m flying out the door with scrambled eggs in a napkin (yep), or sometimes nothing to eat at all. This shake is the perfect solution — and does double duty by mixing in my morning coffee.

You’ll notice that this pumpkin spice shake has no pumpkin. Why? While pumpkin contains compounds that can strengthen your eyes and brain, the green banana in this recipe supplies a healthy dose of resistant starch. This type of starch helps support fat burning and insulin resistance, among other benefits. You could swap the underripe banana with a few spoonfuls of pumpkin puree, but I recommend you give the green banana a shot.

This pumpkin spice shake is brimming with fall flavor and warm spices. It’s a tasty breakfast option for paleo followers, or a good carb refeed recipe if you follow a cyclical keto diet. Enjoy with make-ahead breakfast foods like German chocolate fat bombs for a filling breakfast that travels where you do.

This paleo-friendly pumpkin spice shake is packed with creamy flavor and caffeine -- perfect for a dairy-free primal breakfast on the go.
