Protein Pumpkin Spice Donuts with Starbucks

This blog post was sponsored by Starbucks but the opinions are completely my own based on my experience #starbucksathome #savoreverysip


In keeping with this weeks theme of getting ready for fall, I’ve teamed up with Starbucks to bring you the cutest little fall coffee bar setup AND a protein pumpkin spice donut recipe.  Cuteness and deliciousness all in one! 

Protein Pumpkin Spice Donuts


First, let’s talk about this coffee bar.  As ya’ll know, I love changing my coffee bar setup for each season.  One of my most favorite things about this tradition is getting seasonal coffees. I obviously love the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, but I’ve also grown a fondness for the Hearty with Spice Notes Fall Blend.  It’s a perfect caffeine boost during those deliciously brisk mornings.  If you’re a Starbucks fan like I am, you know there’s nothing better than the taste of a fresh cup of Starbucks coffee.  

I’ve learned that to truly taste coffee there are 4 things to keep in mind: 1. Smell the coffee first.  This enhances your tasting experience.  2. Slurp the coffee.  That may sound like a horrible recommendation (who likes a slurper?) but it properly distributes the solution over your tongue to enhance the tasting of each flavor.  I especially like doing this ritual with my Pumpkin Spice Latte as it allows me to truly enjoy each sensational flavor.  

Right now Walmart and Starbucks have teamed up to give you a special reward: You receive 75 stars for every 3 Starbucks products you buy.  You can check it out here.

  1. Love the idea of a healthier kind of donut. I mean, at least if we want to indulge, we can get some protein, too. 🙂 They look super tasty!

  2. oh. my. gooness. These look so delicious! I now have another recipe I can use for that last banana that I never get to eat before it browns. And lets be honest, who doesn’t like the Starbucks psl? Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. I def need these in my life and it looks like a great recipe! Did SB send you the Pumpkin Spice Latte pods to test and review or did you find it in store? I haven’t seen them before.
