Here’s a recipe that uses pumpkin in the form of fresh juice, yes I said juice. We juice fresh pumpkin, add requisite sweetness with apples, add fresh almond milk for creaminess and soaked spices to round out the flavor. Umm Good!
It seems like everywhere you turn another food item is adding pumpkin to it’s name and some amount of pumpkin taste, if not actual pumpkin. What we wanted to accomplish with this recipe was a drink with the taste of pumpkin pie and also deliver a nutritional punch unmatched in pumpkin pie itself.
