Living on a liquid diet is extremely annoying and frustrating (I have no clue how those juice dieters do it). When I got my wisdom teeth yanked, I had no choice but to “eat” liquids. Luckily, I also had a lot of time on my hands (only capable of binge-watching Netflix), so I decided to experiment a little in the milkshake department. I discovered how to make this awesome pumpkin protein shake. It takes five minutes and is made with really simple ingredients. Even after I’m totally healed, I think I’ll be making this for dessert (or breakfast) a whole lot more.
