The holiday season offers a bounty of flavorful new foods and drinks to enjoy. One particular item that can be found in a variety of recipes this time of year is pumpkin, which is why we’re using this healthy and tasty ingredient to create the ultimate protein shake for fans of this favorite Fall flavor.

To help whip up the most epic pumpkin-flavored, protein concoction, we’ve enlisted the services of IFBB Hall of Fame inductee, and founder of Gaspari Nutrition, Rich Gaspari. With 30 plus years in the bodybuilding business, the man knows a thing or two about creating a great-tasting protein that’s loaded with the finest muscle-building ingredients.

In this episode of Shakedown, we go heavy on the pumpkin and top it off with a scoop of Gaspari Nutrition Precision Protein Vanilla Ice Cream whey protein with 25 grams of protein. It’s a flavor we strongly encourage all fans of pumpkin to experience when refueling after their next grueling workout.
