Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake

1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree - not pie mix
1 1/3C unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 packets Splenda or 1/2 packet of stevia - more to taste

pumpkin pie spice to taste
1 scoop vanilla protein powder

(optional) 1/4C  frozen whipped topping - makes it richer and creamier

Toss in a blender or use an immersion blender like I do. 
I generally use the first 1/3 cup of pumpkin right out of the can. Then I freeze the rest in 1/3 cup increments to give the shake a thicker consistency the next time. 
In my opinion, the colder a protein shake, the better it tastes.
