Pumpkin Pie Smoothie – Start your Thanksgiving morning off right with this festive smoothie that combines your favorite pumpkin spices with spinach and coconut milk for an alkaline kick-start.

Pumpkin Pie Bowl – This breakfast bowl of sweet pumpkin puree on top of a “granola” crumble seems indulgent, but it’s completely alkaline and you’ll feel awesome after you eat it.

PUMPKIN SPICE SMOOTHIE


Ingredients [Serves 2]

2 cups fresh spinach
2 cups almond or coconut milk, unsweetened
1 cup pumpkin, unsweetened (organic - canned or fresh)
1 banana, frozen
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ginger root, minced (can use powder instead)
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 date

DIRECTIONS

Blend spinach and almond milk first. Then add remaining ingredients EXCEPT chia and blend.

Add chia once all is smooth. Blend on a very low speed to mix. If you don’t have a variable speed blender, add chia and stir with a spoon.

Let sit for a few minutes for the chia seeds to expand, and then enjoy.

 

PUMPKIN PIE BREAKFAST BOWL


Ingredients [Serves 2]

1/2 cup cashews
3/4 cup organic canned pumpkin puree (6oz.)
1 tbsp. coconut oil
1/4 cup filtered water
1/4 tsp. sea salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)
1/4 tsp. star anise spice (finely diced)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 large pitted date (or 2 small dates)
1/2 tsp. vanilla (I prefer 1 drop Medicine Flower Vanilla)
1/2 tsp. chopped fresh ginger

Ingredients for GRANOLA CRUMBLE

1/2 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup pitted dates

DIRECTIONS

For Granola Crumble: Add the granola ingredients to a food processor, and blend for 60 seconds. This becomes the base of the breakfast bowl. Place in a bowl and set aside.

For Pumpkin Pie Filling: In a blender, combine all of the ingredients and blend on high. If using Vitamix blender, I recommend using the stick to help blend. If using a regular blender, you may have to add a little more water to allow to blend (but this is meant to be a thick mixture so only add if necessary).

Once blended, add pumpkin pie mixture on top of the granola (in a small bowl or mason jar), and place in refrigerator to thicken. Garnish with cinnamon or nutmeg, and some hemp seeds and crushed almond pieces.

ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS


Ingredients [Serves 2]

20 Brussels sprouts, halved
2 tbsp. coconut oil, melted

Ingredients for SESAME SAUCE

3 tbsp. tahini (sesame butter)
2 tbsp. tamari, gluten-free
1 tbsp. toasted sesame oil
2 tbsp. raw sesame seeds

DIRECTIONS

Toss Brussels sprouts with coconut oil and roast at 450° F for 15 minutes. Toss half way through cooking.

In a small bowl, combine tahini, tamari, sesame oil, and sesame seeds, and thoroughly mix. When Brussels sprouts are done, toss with sesame sauce. Add a spoonful at a time until coated to your liking.

CAULIFLOWER GARLIC MASHED “POTATOES”


Ingredients [Serves 2]

2 tsp. coconut oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
1 head cauliflower, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1/4 cup vegetable broth (yeast free)
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. rosemary, chopped
2 tsp. parsley, chopped
Sea salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, Redmond Real Salt) and black pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

Heat coconut oil in a large pot. Add onion and garlic, and sauté for about 5 minutes or until slightly browned.

Add in cauliflower, carrot, and vegetable broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low-medium and simmer for 10 minutes. If the pot becomes dry, add in a little more of the vegetable broth.

Next, add garlic powder, rosemary, parsley, salt, and pepper and blend with an immersion blender, a blender, or a food processor. Blend until smooth. Serve and enjoy!

PUMPKIN CHIA PUDDING


Ingredients [Serves 2]

2 cups coconut water or filtered water (I prefer coconut water because it’s sweeter)
1/2 cup cashews
1/4 cup pumpkin puree (organic canned) or fresh pumpkin
2 tbsp. coconut oil
1 tbsp. unsweetened coconut flakes
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
3 medium sized dates (if large, use 2 1/2)
1/8 tsp. sea salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)
2 tsp. vanilla (I prefer Medicine Flower Vanilla, 15 drops)
6 tbsp. chia seeds

DIRECTIONS

Blend all ingredients EXCEPT the chia in blender until thoroughly mixed (40-60 seconds).

Then on lowest variable speed, add in your chia seeds, and blend on low speed for one minute to mix chia. If you don’t have a variable speed blender, mix chia with a spoon.

Add into an airtight container, and refrigerate for at least 5 hours before serving. Garnish with cinnamon or nutmeg powder.

RAW PUMPKIN PIE


Ingredients [Serves 4-8]

Ingredients PIE CRUST

1 cup of raw almonds

1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1 cup of dates or Turkish apricots

1 tsp. cinnamon

 

Ingredients PIE FILLING

1 cup pecans (ideally soaked overnight)

1 1/4 cup, or 12 oz. of organic pumpkin puree (you can use fresh pumpkin, but canned puree is MUCH easier and faster).

6 dates

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

1/4 tsp. sea salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)

1 tsp. of vanilla (or 4 drops Medicine Flower Vanilla)

Optional: 1 tsp. of gluten-free Tamari

DIRECTIONS

For Pumpkin Pie Crust: Blend pie crust ingredients in a food processor until you can see the oils coming out of the mixture and it is sticking together (at least a minute or so). Then place mixture in a 9” tart mold or pie pan, and mold against the sides first, then floor of the mold so that it REALLY sticks.

For the Pie Filling: In a blender, blend all ingredients. Then add mixture to fill in the pie crust. Sprinkle cinnamon on top, and place in refrigerator to cool and mold.
