Earlier this week, we featured healthy Halloween recipes (Pumpkin Bread and Vegan Fudge Truffles) from Holistic Mom’s Network‘s new cookbook, Many Paths, One Journey to Health, due out in October.

Today’s post is the final of the bunch, so if you’ve liked what you’ve seen (and/or tasted), be sure to get yourself a copy of HMN’s book!



2 c. canned organic pumpkin Organic agave nectar or honey, to taste

1/2 c. organic rice milk, raw or organic (preferably raw)

milk Dash vanilla extract

1/2 c. vanilla yogurt 1 1/2 c. crushed ice or ice cubes

1 T. pumpkin pie spice Organic whipped cream

1/2 lemon, juiced Cinnamon sticks (optional)

In a blender, combine pumpkin, milk, yogurt, pumpkin spice, juice of half a lemon,

agave nectar or honey to taste, and vanilla extract. Blend together until smooth, and

begin adding the ice while continuing to blend. When mixture is thick and creamy,

stop and hold in refrigerator at least 30 minutes. Top with whipped cream and garnish

with cinnamon sticks. Serve.

Note: This is a fall favorite in our house, especially around Thanksgiving when I’ve

got extra pumpkin. Make sure you add enough sweetener or it will be bitter! Use

organic ingredients whenever possible.
