But first, coffee. I only need coffee on days ending in “y”. Can I call you back in a few cups of coffee? Farmasi Chicory Coffee, that is 😉
Lol! Seriously though, when I found out that Farmasi was coming out with a health and wellness line, I was soooo excited. They’ve been teasing it for a while now, but it’s heeeeere!!
As a Farmasi Influencer, this is going to be HUGE for my business because that means more monthly recurring revenue and an expanded product line (check out this post about why it’s important to choose a company with consumable products if you’re going to get into Network Marketing).
As a mom of 4 who is always on the lookout for hacks to get more healthy energy and improve my overall health, this is going to be HUGE for me personally.
So when I found out that Farmasi’s very first product launch in their wellness line was going to be coffee, I was like whaaaaaa?!!! Give it to me now.
And that was BEFORE I even knew that it was Chicory coffee, or that it was healthy, or that it was fat-burning. Yup, I said fat-burning coffee. Doesn’t that have a beautiful ring to it? Lol.
So here are the details about what the Farmasi Chicory Coffee actually is, my review, and some recipes you can try once you grab a bag (or 10) for yourself.
Farmasi Nutriplus Chicory Coffee Details
Technically, this is an instant coffee and chicory blend with a ratio of 40% coffee to 60% chicory.

Farmasi Chicory Coffee Recipes
Here are some of my favorite recipes to make with the Farmasi coffee. Even though I do the “boring” basic hot coffee every morning with just a splash of oat milk (and it is soooo gooood), I love to mix it up and try fun recipes too. My kids love coffee milkshakes… and I love that they’re getting a health boost without even knowing it 😉
- BASIC HOT COFFEE
2 tsp coffee w/ 8 oz hot water + mix. add sweetener or cream if desired.
- ICED COFFEE
1.5 Tbsp coffee in a large glass add creamer (to your liking) & stir. Fill glass with 8 oz cold water & stir constantly until dissolved (may take a few min). Add ice & enjoy!
- WHIPPED (DALGONA) COFFEE

How Much Does The Farmasi Coffee Cost?
$22 per bag and it comes with 25 servings. That’s just $0.88 per cup… eighty-eight cents you guys! Wayyyy less than that $5 Starbucks latte and wayyyyy better for you. It’s a no-brainer.
Even though Farmasi doesn’t have auto-ship, this is one product that I reeeeeally wish they did have it for (pretty please Farmasi if you’re reading this 😉 😉 😉 )

Ok, without further ado, here are my 6 favorite recipes to make with the Arbonne Pumpkin Spice Protein (+1 bonus recipe because I heart you… and because I found it after I made all the images and outline for this post… but mostly because I heart you)!
1. Pumpkin Spice Protein Shake
You know I HAD to start here, right? I mean, you can’t have a bag of protein shake mix and NOT have a solid shake recipe to go with it.
8oz. Vanilla Almond Milk
2 Scoops Pumpkin Protein
1/4 cu. Pumpkin Puree
1 TBSP Nut Butter
Handful of Ice
Blend & Enjoy!
2. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Edible Cookie Dough
Oh yes, I did just say “edible cookie dough”. Go ahead and lock yourself in the bathroom and eat it by the spoonful. It’s toootally okay not to share. (recipe & via: @goodmommy0709)
2 scoops Arbonne Pumpkin Spice Protein Mix
2 TBSP Kirkland Mixed Nut Butter (or nut butter of choice)
2 TBSP Oat Milk (or dairy-free milk of choice)
Pinch of salt
1/8 cup Enjoy Life Mega Chocolate Chunks
Mix all ingredients together and get it in your belly!
3. Pumpkin Spice Protein Balls
There are soooooo many different ways to make protein balls you guys! I’ve made countless variations with the Arbonne protein flavor classics of chocolate and vanilla, and they are the PERFECT go-to snack when your sweet tooth comes knocking but you don’t want to actually indulge. Here’s the PERFECT protein ball recipe for Fall using the seasonal Pumpkin Spice Protein Mix.
2 scoops Arbonne Pumpkin Spice Protein Mix
1 cup gluten-free oats
3/4 cup sunflower butter (or nut butter of choice)
1/4 – 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
2 TBSP raw, unfiltered honey
1 TBSP chia seeds
1 TBSP pumpkin seeds
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
Mix it all together and form into balls.
Pop 1-2 in your mouth post-workout or whenever that sugar craving kicks in! Store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
(grab 2 bags to get free shipping)
4. Protein PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte)
I know people get REAL serious about their PSLs, so I’m not gonna mess around with you on this.
Yes, this IS a healthier version of the now-traditional Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, but it’s wayyyy nicer on your waistline. And I PROMISE you it tastes even better. Yes, I said “e.v.e.n. b.e.t.t.e.r.”.
Since there’s no fake, heavy, syrup-y, over-the-top sweetness to it, you actually feel good after you finish it. It’s just a warm, cozy, smooth, lightly sweet and totally fulfilling cup of Pumpkin Heaven that you can have literally every day in the Fall without feeling guilty.
Stir together the following ingredients and steam slowly on stovetop, whisking constantly:
– 3/4 – 1 cup oat milk
– 2 TBSP pumpkin puree
– 1 scoop Pumpkin Spice Protein
– 1 tsp. pure maple syrup
Separately, brew 2 shots espresso or about 1/4-1/2 cup strong coffee and pour into mug. Pour milk mixture into coffee and froth up with a frother. Top with a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
Sip slowly and savor.
The fancy blog picture of my Protein PSL is above, but here’s a little behind-the-scenes glimpse at what my everyday #momlife PSL looks like:
A little less fancy, still just.as.satisfying.
5. Pumpkin-Cranberry Protein Bars
This recipe is a bit fussier than the ones I’ve shared so far, but SO worth it. And really only “fussy” because it requires more ingredients, and a few you may not have just lying around in your pantry, but the assembly is super easy once you get going! (recipe & via: @thewholescoopblog)
1/3 cup ground flax meal
3/4 cup Pumpkin Spice Protein Shake Mix
2/3 cup smooth tahini or sesame paste
2 tbsp date syrup
3 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tbsp sunflower seeds
1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp dried cranberries
1 1/2 tbsp melted coconut oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup plant-based yogurt
1 tbsp melted coconut oil
1. In one bowl, combine the coconut oil, tahini, date syrup and vanilla extract.
2. In a separate bowl, combine the flax meal, protein powder, all the seeds and cranberries.
3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well.
4. Line a bread loaf pan with a piece of parchment paper. Then press the dough into the pan and flatten/even it out with your fingers or a spatula.
5. In a small bowl, combine the yogurt and melted coconut oil. Pour over the dough in an even layer. Then sprinkle in additional toppings as you like.
6. Chill in the freezer for at least 1.5 hours, then they’re ready to eat!
Store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
6. Pumpkin Spice Protein Cookies
No Pumpkin Spice protein recipe list would be complete without a cookie, amiright? And this one does.not.dissapoint., my friend. It does have a fair amount of flour (GF), sugar and butter, so this definitely falls into the “treat” category, and it’s the only one on this list that is not vegan. But still packs a protein punch and tastes like pumpkiny-Fall goodness.
1 cup Pumpkin Spice Protein
1 1/4 cup gluten-free flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup whole cane sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (1 bag) pumpkin spice chips
Preheat oven to 350. Mix ingredients and drop by rounded spoonful onto a baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
BONUS Recipe! Pumpkin Protein Blender Mini-Muffins
These were sooo quick & easy to make and my kids gobbled them up within minutes of them cooling out of the oven. I helped with the gobbling, shamelessly. (

Protein shakes are my go-to daily lunch, mostly because of their convenience, but it helps that they taste like dessert 😉 . You get an entire balanced and healthy meal in 2 minutes in the form of a tasty shake. Health, convenience and deliciousness… it’s a win-win-win for busy mamas.
But sometimes you just wanna eat something, ya know? And smoothie bowls are basically the same thing as the shakes I make, just with the liquid/solid ratio adjusted a bit for a more “spoonable” experience.
Add some crunchy toppings and you’ve got yourself an easy go-to on days when you don’t feel like drinking your lunch through a straw 😉.
So with that in mind, give this delicious recipe a try for breakfast or lunch!
Vanilla Dragonfruit Protein Smoothie Bowl (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)
- 2 scoops Arbonne vanilla protein
- 2 frozen bananas
- 1/3 cup frozen pink dragonfruit
- 1/4 cup frozen raspberries
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
Just add all ingredients to your blender or Nutribullet and blend. Top with your faves! Pictured here is puffed quinoa, toasted, coconut flakes, coconut yogurt and berries. Yum!
Why I Love Arbonne Protein
In the world of protein powders, you have a lot of options. There’s whey, casein, soy, egg, rice, hemp and other plant-based sources.
Each of these have their pros and cons depending on your goals and ideals (weight loss, muscle gain, weight maintenance, health, sourcing, etc.).
When choosing a protein supplement, you’ll want to make sure your protein has a complete amino acid profile as well as taking a good look at the ingredients to make sure they’re contributing to – and not hurting – your overall health.
With that in mind, here’s why I choose Arbonne’s protein:
- 100% Vegan: Contains no whey or casein (which can be hard to digest and can cause abdominal discomfort and gas)
- 20 grams of Complete Protein: Many plant-based protein powders are not considered “complete” because they only use one source of protein. By combining protein from pea, brown rice and cranberry, Arbonne’s protein delivers a complete amino acid profile
- Bonus nutrients: additional nutrients like vitamin B12 and Folate give me even more health benefits
- Soy-free: I like to steer clear of soy whenever possible because of its negative impacts on health
- Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Cruelty-free: All the -frees 😉
- Tastes amazing: If you’ve ever tried protein powders before, then you know that most of them taste nasty. They’re either too grainy, or too artificial tasting, or too nasty. Lol. I seriously look forward to my Arbonne shakes every day because they really taste that good.
You can grab a bag of Arbonne vanilla protein here on my website. They have Chocolate and Chai flavors too 😋
