Chocolate Pumpkin Protein Shake

I am still in love with pumpkin... I think there's so much more I can do with it, I just need to experiment more.  This morning, I made a Chocolate Pumpkin Protein Shake for breakfast - It turned out pretty good so I had to share.  It's not super chocolatey because I just used Chocolate Whey Protein Powder - but you could intensify the chocolate by adding some cocoa powder or something if you wanted.  It is low in calories, high in fiber, and high in protein - makes this the perfect breakfast - or even the perfect post workout recovery shake!

3/4 scoop chocolate protein powder (I used Body Fortress)
just under 2 tbsp Plain greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
1/5 cup Canned pumpkin (I used Libby's)
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
3tbsp liquid egg whites (I used Great Value)
1 packet Splenda
just under 1 cup soy milk (I used Silk Organic Unsweetened)
8 Ice Cubes

Combine all ingredients in blender - blend until smooth.
