This smoothie is the next best thing to eating pumpkin pie.  It’s super healthy, and totally addictive.  The coconut milk adds just enough creaminess, and the cinnamon just the right amount of spice.  The dates add just the right amount of sweetness, but without the sugar.  I literally can’t stop drinking it.

For the recipe:

Makes 2.

  • 2/3 cup Pumpkin Puree, canned or fresh 
  • 1 cup Coconut Milk
  • 1 cup Water
  • 2 Dates
  • 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

And the instructions: 

In a blender, place all of your ingredients, and blend for 20-30 seconds.  You can also use an immersion blender, which makes the clean up a bit easier.

That’s it.  It’s super easy!  And absolutely delicious!

Hi!! I'm Brigitte Theriault. I help women who are TIRED of feeling sick and unhealthy transform their relationship with food. My goal is to show you how to figure out what to eat, where to shop for healthy ingredients, and how to cook this stuff so you can feel ALIVE again. I want to help you realize that this is possible and within your reach, and not as hard or overwhelming as you think. I battled endometriosis, epstein-barr virus, chronic allergies and sinusitis. For years, pain, exhaustion, and frustration was a normal way of life. When the epstein-barr struck, I developed severe food allergies that forced me to re-evaluate my diet. As a chef, this was paradoxical. I could make healthy food taste good, but I could no longer eat the foods I once loved. I gave up bread, cheese, sugar, coffee, and wine. It was the hardest thing I have ever done in my whole life. But changing my relationship with food changed my life. I went back to school to study nutrition. I realized how disconnected I had been to real food my whole life. I became connected to my food sources. My allergies and exhaustion went away. I started to feel vibrant and healthy again. And I developed a passion for guiding you through your own path of making sense of your relationship with food.
