Paleo Pumpkin Recipes

Paleo Pumpkin Recipes

Although the rest of the world would like to convince you that it is time to start buying Christmas decorations, with leaves just beginning to change and the return of crisp cool mornings we are focusing on fall flavors! Let’s look at some Paleo Pumpkin Recipes.

Why Paleo Pumpkin Recipes? When asked for an opinion on diet, Dr. Jordan typically recommends removing all forms of wheat, dairy and processed sugar from your diet. If you are searching for a recipe and want to be sure it will be wheat, dairy and sugar free, using the term paleo will always give you safe quick results!

 

We suggest to search Paleo because if you find a flour-less (meaning wheat free or gluten free) recipe, it may still contain dairy and/or sugar. The same applies if you search for a dairy-free option. Commonly these recipes with have some form of gluten or sugar as an ingredient.

     – 1 can of pumpkin
     – 2 cans of coconut milk, use ONLY the coconut cream (the solidified part)
(save the remaining milk for a smoothie, protein shake or homemade popsicles)
     – 1 teaspoon vanilla
     – 1 teaspoon cinnamon or pumpkin spice (more if you like)
     – 1/4 cup maple syrup (the original recipe calls for 1 cup coconut sugar – this is WAY too much sugar for our taste, plus we like the maple flavor better. Add more if you need it sweeter)

Instructions

– Combine all ingredients until smooth, using a food processor can help                                              – Dip in apples, bananas, grapes, strawberries, whatever you like.
