Kate was so excited when we went to the store over the weekend and she picked out a pie pumpkin. She was excited as it sat on our counter for 2 days and "watched her eat". She was even excited when I said it was time to cut it open to make something yummy.
I turned my back for one second and I hear a retching sound. I look and Kate is SO NOT happy.
Her sister did not have the same qualms.
meanwhile, Lucy is working away, very focused on her task to scrape out every last seed and string of goop.
They were devoured within minutes. NOW Kate will touch them!
Combine the following in a blender:
1 c. pumpkin
1 c. coconut milk (I used the lite version)
1 c. unsweetened almond milk
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
pinch of ground cloves
5 medjool dates, pits removed (I didn't have any on hand so substituted 1 Tb brown rice syrup)
Whir this together until smooth. Pour into a glass bowl. Stir in 3 TB chia seeds (again, no chia seeds on hand so I substituted salba).
Cover and store in fridge overnight or at least 4 hours. Yum!
