Pumpkin Spice Soup


With fall well underway it is time to take advantage of the fall harvest. Pumpkin is a magical food (remember Cinderella) and loaded with incredible nutrients. Below is a recipe I adapted to be served thick and warm for the chilly weather that is blowing in. This is the best recipe because it seriously takes only 10 minutes! Let me know how it comes out for you!


1 can of pumpkin puree (use 2 cups of fresh)
1/2 cup of orange juice
1 dash cinnamon
2 dashes ginger powder
1 dash stevia powder
1/4 cup coconut milk (or cow/soy/almond milk)
1 handful of raisins


Blend everything together until smooth . Add more spice to taste if desired. Place on stove and heat. Be careful not to heat too long. This is really like a five minute soup!

Serve topped with pecans, and a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg!
