No, it wasn’t just the AC that we still have cranking. This was a little bit of chill in the outside air.
I even put on a lightweight sweater while sitting on the porch. So it must be time to bring on all things pumpkin spice, don’t you agree?

Ingredients in the Pumpkin Spice Latte Custard Shake
- coconut oil
- unsweetened almond milk
- brewed coffee (or chai tea)
- canned pumpkin puree (omit when making Deep S version)
- vanilla extract
- pumpkin spice
- THM Gentle Sweet (or equivalent sweetener)
- THM Pristine Whey Potein Powder or THM Integral Collagen
- mineral salt
- ice cubes
I include brewed coffee in the recipe because it’s sort of a key ingredient in the famous Pumpkin Spice Latte.
However, if you’re not a fan of coffee, no worries!
I love how this custard shake tastes when I make it with brewed chai tea instead of the coffee.
In fact, I might like it a little better with the chai tea!
The key ingredient in any custard is egg.
Eggs are what gives the custard its color and its rich flavor.
I love that they’re also a great source of protein!
This shake boasts 23 grams of protein, making it a healthy breakfast option.
How Can the Pumpkin Spice Latte Custard Shake be Considered a “Deep S”?
Trim Healthy Mama is a lifestyle where you separate your fuels.
In a nutshell, when we eat healthy carbs, we avoid fat; when we eat fats, we avoid healthy carbs.
Meals that include fat are considered S meals (the S stands for satisfying). It’s easy to fall into the trap of loading up an S meal with lots of fat. I’ve definitely done that!
Deep S meals strip out certain kinds of fats (in particular, fat from dairy and nuts), and also contain virtually no carbs.
When should you have a Deep S meal?
Honestly, you should include deep S meals throughout the week.
These types of meals help you not overdo the kinds of fats that can lead to stalls.
Deep S meals are also a vital part of a fuel cycle, another tool to help if you find yourself at a weightloss plateau or stall.
Speaking of stalls, you might like my tips for breaking a THM stall.
The Deep S meal is what Pearl and Serene recommend as a “reset” if you indulge in off-plan foods at a meal!
Because sometimes when you follow this lifestyle, it’s gonna happen.
Fairly soon after beginning Trim Healthy Mama I found a recipe for a vanilla custard shake.
It tasted so good! But the amount of fat and protein in it was too high for me.
I began tweaking the recipe and playing around with other flavor combinations which is how I ended up with this PSL version!
I love that this recipe makes a really big shake!
It’s enough to be a full meal, or snack on its own.
If you choose to have one after a meal, you may want to cut the recipe in half.
Be sure to leave a star rating and review after you make the recipe!
This helps other people to find and enjoy it too.
