Our FAVORITE October recipes + benefits of pumpkin

By: Kate Leeney- Owner: Luminous Wellness


SUPER BASIC SUPER FOOD

-

Pumpkin is a SUPER FOOD + is jam packed with so many amazing vitamins and minerals. Particularly vitamin c (because we need allll the vitamin c right now) and magnesium (super important for very active souls because it’s great for your muscles + recovery). Also, pumpkin is high in fiber-which helps with digestion and keeps you full for longer. I could go on for awhile about pumpkin but I wanted to share some of my favorite pumpkin recipes that I have created over the years. ENJOY



INGREDIENTS:

-

1/2 cup organic pumpkin

3oz yogurt of choice

1 tsp pumpkin spice

1 small frozen banana

1 tbsp coconut cream (great sub for whipped cream) or more yogurt to top

1 tbsp chia seeds+ 1 tbsp flaxseed (optional)

*PRO TIP* add all of the pumpkin spice that you want!

DIRECTIONS

Blend and Serve!

I love adding in my own things to yogurt because I can control the ingredients and how much added sugars I am putting into it! Some of my other favorite ways to add some more natural sweetness are: fruit (I love mashed ripe bananas), unsweetened cocoa powder, protein powder (I have a list of my favorites in our programs), vanilla extract, cinnamon, natural apple sauce, and clean ingredient nut butters.


INGREDIENTS:

-3/4 cup plain yogurt of choice

-1 tsp maple syrup

-1/4 cup pumpin puree

-grain free pumpkin granola (I like @thrivemarket)

-all the pumpkin spice you want!

DIRECTIONS:

-Mix and serve!
