Author Notes

I love the colors of fall – the reds, yellows and oranges – and Pumpkin! never thought of making something from raw Pumpkin before but thought why not – and it turned out yummy. With the left over Pumpkin I made a smoothie with hemp milk, banana, cinnamon, dates and L.O.V.E. and was it yummy!!
Raw Pumpkin is quite nutritionally dense – making healthy eating easy. Pumpkin in it’s raw form is loaded with Vitamin A and potassium.
