The Vanilla Pumpkin Smoothie (or pudding)

Note - this version could be raw or cooked.

I honestly believe that especially with root veg and squash,
using eat to extract more nutrients is a good thing,
and raw really isnt optimal for this kind of dish.

However, Ive done it, and with a vitamix it turned out well.

The amounts can vary depending how thick you prefer your smoothies.

1-2 cups of squash, pumpkin, or sweet potato. (Preferably cooked)
2 scoops of sunwarrior vanilla warrior blend.
1 tbls of cinnamon
1 tsp of nutmeg
2 cups of water
1-2 vanilla beans if you have them.

I added some sweetleaf vanilla stevia drops,
but the sunwarrior powder already had stevia
and coupled with the sugars from the baked squash or sweet potato,
it wasnt really needed to be honest.

I blend it all, and enjoy.

I get the spices from Mountain Rose Herbs,
and the Sunwarrior stuff can be checked out HERE.

One of the best ways to enjoy thanksgiving leftovers!!
