One of the things I love most about blogging is the endless amount of inspiration I get from other bloggers.
It only took a matter of minutes after seeing Lauren’s Pumpkin Pie Steamer before the wheels started turning…and honestly, since I’ve done it with hot chocolate, I can’t believe the thought never occurred to me until now!
Anyone down for a hot mug of liquid pie?
With a protein punch? 😉

Creamy, dreamy, warm, and spicy…the perfect drink to refuel you after a long cold run or even just to curl up with on the couch in your pj’s!
Or you could always use it to help wash down a super thick bowl of Perfect Oatmeal!
Seriously, make these oats…
Your tastebuds will thank you for it! 😉
About a month ago, as a perk to being a Fitfluential Ambassador, I was given a free* tub of Muscle Gauge Nutrition’s Pure Whey Isolate protein powder in vanilla and I’ve been using it in practically everything!
It has DEFINITELY made for some fantastic protein pancakes over the last couple of weeks…
The powder itself is fantastic! The flavor is amazing, it mixes easily, and it packs 25 grams of protein in only ONE scoop! I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good protein supplement.
Thank you so much Muscle Gauge!
Disclaimer: While I did receive this supplement from the company free of charge, my review is totally unbiased. It’s just GOOD stuff! 😉
Now go…make yourself a steamer…curl up with a good
book blog…and work on that seasonal tan! 😉
What is your favorite fall beverage?
I love a good (spiked) apple cider and of course, pumpkin ale is a MUST!
