On day six of the twelve days of pumpkin, I awoke to a wintry wonderland in Corvallis, Oregon. My mind immediately jumped to a hearty pumpkin breakfast to start the snow day! I already detailed my first attempt at concocting a pumpkin shake, but this time, I got it right.

The Pumpkin Shake: for the mornings when coffee just isn’t enough…


1/2 cup packed Farmer’s Market Organic Pumpkin
1 cup Coconut Milk
1/2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
1 tablespoon Agave Sweetener (or Sugar)
garnish with ground nutmeg and ground ginger (optional)


In a blender, mix all ingredients on high for 20 seconds or until blended. Garnish with ground nutmeg and ground ginger. Makes 1 shake.
