Fall Sweaters Under $40 + A Healthy Pumpkin Protein Smoothie Recipe

It’s currently low 60’s here and I have seen some leaves starting to change. What. The. Actual. Heck. I seriously can’t believe Summer is basically over and Fall is coming. I mean, Fall is my favorite season, but Summer in Coeur d’Alene (where I live) is absolute magic and I can’t believe how fast it blew by.

Today, I am going to share with y’all some Fall sweaters I have either purchased or have on my wish list! Everything is under $40, and a lot of them are Amazon Prime. I am also including my go-to protein smoothie recipe for Fall. I legit start having it for breakfast once it’s acceptable to start adding pumpkin to allll the foods. Which I think that time is new. This smoothie will satisfy your pumpkin tooth without packing on the added sugars and empty calories. Click below to read more!

Off-The-Shoulder Slouchy Sleeve Sweater||This is a Free People dupe. I have the Free People one AND this one. I like this one better for Fall/Winter because the material is thicker! Lots of colors to choose from & under $20.

Pumpkin Protein Smoothie

Serves 1

1.5 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
1/2 banana, tastes best frozen in chunks

1/2 cup (or more for my fellow pumpkin lovers) pumpkin puree
1/4th teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon also works)
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1/2 cup crushed ice

*Optional: top with cacao nibs (antioxidants +fiber!) and/or 1-2 tbsp PB powder

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Add more ice if desired. Sprinkle with a little extra cinnamon on top!
