’Tis the season for pumpkin spice! I’m not a big fan of pumpkin spice lattes because I am a coffee purist, but I do love a good pumpkin smoothie! I have boosted it with a powerful immune modulator, modified citrus pectin, as it is an extremely powerful immune modulator, detoxifier and supports cardiovascular and cellular health as well as helps with a myriad of issues from autoimmunity to arthritis. I use EcoNugenics (PectaSol-C) and it is available in my Wellevate Dispensary. It doesn’t taste like much so blends into everything. I also love putting it in my evening calming drink to help with detoxification while I sleep.
I generally love boosters in my smoothie, so I add gelatinized red Maca from The Maca Team for women’s hormonal balance & OM Master Mushroom blend for inflammation, immune boosting and zapping brain fog. I like to use dōTERRA ingestible essential oils in my smoothies for maximum health benefits but feel free to use spices from your cupboard. Pumpkin is gentle on the gut as well as tasty so this is a favorite for fall post workout recovery shakes, breaking my fast or a quick lunch after homeschooling.
What’s your favorite smoothie? What nutritive boosters do you like to add?
