I LOVE pumpkin! I don't even consider it a vegetable because I like it so much and it is so versatile, yet it is! Pumpkin supports heart health and along with the banana in this recipe, provides you with a lot of potassium, which can help in the treatment and prevention of high blood pressure (along with decreasing sodium intake). Also, I had to include my immersion blender in this shot because it is one of my favorite kitchen tools! It fits right into my large smoothie cup and makes blending my smoothies so easy, and keeps the cleanup quick!

I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
