FALL HARVEST REFRESHER for this Columbus Day

So, what do you get when your visit to the farmer’s market yields carrots, ginger, apples, and a huge bunch of parsley?

blend it up in your VitaMix!  …along with a bit of frozen mango chunks, pre-frozen cubes of pumpkin puree, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, and enjoy the FALL HARVEST refresher! The key taste in this gently sweet concoction is the blend of pumpkin, carrot, and parsley with ginger.

organic ingredients:

carrots (juice and add some of the pulp)

handful of mango chunks

1/2 apple of just apple juice, if you prefer

handful of parsley

frozen pumpkin cubes or scoop if not already frozen (but add ice later, then)

almond milk

segment of ginger according to spice preference…

optional: cinnamon, dates, & banana (too much banana may dominate the veggie/pumpkin overture in this drink).  if you want added Vitamin C, throw a wedge of ripe red bell pepper in for a subtle undercurrent of flavor to complement the ginger.

note:  The more pumpkin you add, the creamier; if you want it sweeter and creamier, add bananas and dates and cinnamon to highlight up the pumpkin-ness of this season. Bit of ice blended in is always nice.
