Healthy and Fresh Pumpkin Juice

Most people associate Pumpkin dishes or drinks with the Autumn/Fall Season. At this time of year the weather begins to get colder and we can see the trees turn from green to oranges, ambers and browns. This for many people is the season for all things Pumpkin Spice. This blend of spices was originally used to flavor Pumpkin Pies which are an American staple around Thanksgiving. However, with this recipe we hope to give you a chilled or warm beverage that’s everything we love about pumpkin and pumpkin spice. Would you like a break from the sugary caffeinated latte? Well try our recipe for a very healthy and fresh Pumpkin Juice.
