Pumpkin Spice Shake

It's fall.  Even here in Vegas the weather is finally starting to cool down, and that only means one thing: It's PUMPKIN season!  I've been working really hard on improving my fitness and nutrition, and I didn't want to derail my progress with too many treats.  I'm a nut for pumpkin, though, and I was thrilled when I found this recipe for a pumpkin shake.  Here it is:

One scoop chocolate Shakeology
1/2 c. pumpkin (be sure it's not pumpkin pie filling, but real pumpkin)
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Nutmeg
1 c. skim milk or almond milk

It was a pretty thick drink, and the pumpkin taste wasn't overwhelming--might not be enough pumpkin for some, but it was still really good.  As good as a full-throttle pumpkin spice latte, well, not really, but it was a great treat and kept me on track. 
Do you live for pumpkin season?  What's your favorite pumpkin treat?  Any great recipes to try?
