ITS  NOW  PUMPKIN - TIME.....

Pumpkin is a very low calorie vegetable (actually technically a fruit) that is packed with antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, E, beta-carotene, and zea-xanthin which can help prevent age-related macular disease. Pumpkin is also a rich source of B-vitamins such as folates, niacin, thiamin, and pantothenic acid and minerals like calcium, copper, potassium, and phosphorus.

It is an excellent food for aiding weight loss and for reducing cholesterol. The high amount of phytonutrients in pumpkin have been shown to help prevent the risk of cancers, particularly mouth, lung, and colon cancer. Pumpkin also contains several anti-aging benefits and the antioxidants help to keep skin wrinkle-free and radiating a healthy glow.

It also contains immune-boosting properties which can help the body stay strong and ward off common colds and flus that may be going around. Pumpkin is excellent way to replenish and restore the body after a workout as it is high in potassium which helps to restore the body’s balance of electrolytes after exercise and keeps muscles functioning at their best.

Pumpkin is a versatile food and can be eaten raw, steamed, baked, or roasted and is commonly used in muffins, pies, soups, and stews. Frozen or canned pumpkin is an alternative option to include this healthy vegetable into your diet when you are short on time. Pumpkin can be found online and fresh at your local health food store.

1 large frozen banana
1 cup coconut milk
1 tablespoon raw honey
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
