Pumpkin Raspberry Parfait – Raw Style

June 11, 2015

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.

Serves: 1-2 glasses

Ingredients

Pumpkin Puree:

  • 1 piece small to medium size Pumpkin – insides scraped out, seeds could be washed and dried and baked in oven or dehydrator if wanted for yummy snack
  • Pumpkin will need to be cut up into small pieces and the outer skin taken off.
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Nutmeg or Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • pinch Himalayan Salt
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cups Water
  • 4 tablespoons Agave (or other natural sweetner – adjust to taste)
  • Throw all ingredients into Vitamix or Blender and slowly add water until desired consistency – you want it kind of thick not too runny, it may take scraping down the sides a few times and a little bit to get fairly smooth.
