PUMPKIN PIE GREEN SMOOTHIE

 

"LET THERE BE PUMPKIN SPICE"

 

For years, I have used the same pumpkin pie recipe.  I have modified, tweaked, and fine tuned many variations over time until finally one day, as I dipped into the blender for a final taste, I realized: "This would make an amazing green smoothie". So here you go...  

 

This seasonal green smoothie is a tasty and nourishing way to fuel your body during the festive week ahead.

 

With all the warming pumpkin pie spices, a big handful of greens and all that delicious pumpkin flesh I hope you will love this easy to make, delicious and energizing smoothie as much as I do.

 

 

 

To make this into your pumpkin pie filling simply add 2 eggs, and bake at 425, and bake for 15 min.  Then reduce heat to 350 and bake 45 min more until set.  Let sit for approximately 1 hour and serve.

Pumpkin season is here! And there are so many ways to incorporate this delicious orange vegetable, and its healthy, crunchy seeds, into your diet.

 

Green pumpkin seeds, or pepitas, are excellent for supporting a happy mood thanks to the tryptophan they contain, plus they're also great for prostate health thanks to their zinc content - so all you men out there should especially eat them up!

These muffins are really low in added sugar.  Bananas, Turkish figs, and a little coconut sugar lend a great balance of natural sweetness, along with lots of minerals.  The almond flour and eggs provide lots of protein to keep you full and energized throughout the day. 

 

Cinnamon, ginger, clove, nutmeg, and allspice lend these muffins a warming, nourishing flavor and scent that will have you loving every bit of Autumn. Click the button below to find the recipe from our team member, Ailsa's, food blog – .Food to Feel Good – Happy eating!
