Pumpkin Blast Smoothie

Happy Thanksgiving! I’m not gonna lie, I wish I’d shared this with you sooner, but truth is, this might be exactly what you want the day after. Think of it as a pumpkin flavored detox. Bursting with pumpkin pie flavor, but made with carrots and spinach, this is a 100% no-guilt blended treat. 

Also, if you’re looking for a pumpkin pie alternative, I updated my Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins recipe for healthier and protein filled options ;)


  • 6-8 Organic Baby Peeled Carrots
  • Handful Organic Baby Spinach  (about. 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup Organic Pumpkin Puree 
  • 1 Frozen Banana
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 tbsp Organic Flaxseed Meal

  • 1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Allspice
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg

Harvest Oatmeal

Breakfast is my all-time favorite meal of the day. With the holidays upon us I've been playing with some healthier alternatives that are guilt free, but just as comforting. In case you couldn't tell, I love food, so while I strive to maintain a healthy diet, my dishes still need to be packed with flavor, and this Harvest Oatmeal is just that! Easy to make in large batches and one of my favorite meals to make ahead, this Harvest Oatmeal is the perfect Thanksgiving Breakfast option to set you up for the weekend ahead. Enjoy!
