Tis’ the season for Pumpkin! The harvest fruit is everywhere – from Jack O’ Lanterns on every doorstep to pumpkin spiced lattes and pies in every store! Besides pumpkin being a great decoration and having a delicious flavor for sweets and treats, pumpkins are healthy and nutritious for you.
Pumpkins are a potent antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory food. Juicing them can be better for you (instead of the overly sugar treats). So, instead of a super sweet pumpkin treat — try a healthy twist to the pumpkin craze. The juicing experts at Juicepresso created a healthy twist to a pumpkin spiced latte which also puts to use the pumpkin meat from your Jack O’ Lantern.
1/2 small pumpkin (seeds, hard rind and stem removed), chopped
1 red apple
1 Meyer lemon, quartered
1-inch piece ginger, well scrubbed
Once all fruits and vegetables have been prepared, pressed, and placed in a glass, top off your drink with a dab of cinnamon. Enjoy!
