I posted this video two days ago on Facebook and I have been completely blown away at it’s popularity! As of 11pm tonight, the video has been viewed over 11 MILLION times and shared over 91,000 times in 48 hours. Crazy!
I didn’t expect that video to go viral, but am so happy people are really loving my recipe. You can watch the 15-second video here:

Do you have to use the whey protein?
I LOVE it! As soon as I saw your post, I headed to the grocery store for pumpkin puree. Only downer is my protein powder and unsweetened almond milk have higher calorie count than yours. Nonetheless, still a wonderful option over Megabucks… I mean starbucks.
Also, I’ve been running and cross-training since the end of May but haven’t really seen the effects that I had hoped for – tone muscles, weight loss, etc. I’m 43, so I get that it takes much more effort to trim up than it did just a few years ago; but I’ve never ran before so I thought for sure that would melt the fat away. I could tell my muscles were shaping up but just less than I planned on.
Only six days ago I stumbled upon your site and started looking through your notes. I saw a comment on macros, so I proceeded to look it up. Then I found the IIFYM calculator. I had never paid any attention to these ratios. Per the calculator, I wasn’t taking in enough calories, nor was I getting the appropriate ratio of carbs, protein & fat. I saw a lot of recipes that you shared that I thought I’d love, so I got my notebook out, made a list and headed to Trader Joe’s. Made your buffalo and salsa crock pot chicken dishes, pre-workout protein shake and much more.
Today is my fifth day of recording my macros and I have noticed major changes. #1 – the sore calf muscles I’ve had for the past month or so from running has almost completely diminished. #2 – I’ve lost 1 lb. #3 – I feel like the fat is just disappearing (I’m much less bloated feeling)!
I had a really hard time believing that I needed to eat that much food. I’m a really slow eater so I feel like I’m eating all day long and it’s hard making sure I eat because I’m not always that hungry. But I’m getting it now. I have to exercise or my hormones and age will get the best of me but now that I know what I need to do with my diet I get to reap the benefits even more so.
Thank you soo much!!
I would love to share this with some office coworkers. I was wondering if I could prepare it ahead of time, blend it up then put it in a container and then shake it (with the lid on ) (; then micro wave it. We have no blender at work. Thanks…looks like a nice fall treat.
Incredibly delicious! Tried it this morning, however I tweeked it a bit. I used chocolate unsweetened almond milk, no stevia or sweetner and I also used my own vanilla protein powder! I still need to perfect it, but MMMM delicious!
Oh Amy you have no idea how much your comment just made my day! I am so happy and excited for you! So glad I could help 🙂 xo
I’m curious about the whey as well.
SOO good – I am using Isopure unflavored whey and using two scoops to bump up the protein – Enjoying one right now as my afternoon “snack” and will have the leftovers in the morning. Thanks for sharing.
You bet! So glad you like it!
Hey Mary, you bet! I think it would taste just as good that way. Let me know how they like it!
So glad you liked it! Thanks for the feedback Roxanne!
Hey Amy, I like adding the whey protein powder because it adds some protein to my snack (which keeps me full longer) but also because it gives the drink sort of a frothy/foamy consistency similar to a latte. I like the MRM brand because it doesn’t have the protein powder aftertaste that many protein powders have (best prices are on amazon.com or bodybuilding.com). So, the whey isn’t necessary but I do think it makes it taste better.

I don’t like coffee how bad would it be to use chai tea?
I love it!! The only few changes I made are I use unsweetened unflavored almond milk,1 tsp pupumpkin pie spice, and 1 scoop gnc total lean 25 pumpkin spice protein powder! Sooo delicious!
I LOVE this recipe!!! Only difference for me is that I can’t do soy, so I use my Shakeology powder instead of the MRM! Thanks so much for this 🙂 Bring on the fall weather!
I made your pumpkin latte this AM and it was amazing! It totally hit the spot. I’ve been craving pumpkin coffee/latte for over a week. I got a pumpkin coffee from Dunkin Donuts and threw it out, it had to have like 60 grams of sugar. Thanks for sharing!!
