Along with that little bit of leftover chipotle in adobo and that smidgen of tomato paste, I inevitably end up with some pumpkin puree after opening up a can.  This drink was born when we harvested the last carrots from the greenhouse before it got too hot - and that forlorn scoop of pumpkin puree chiding me from its glass container in the refrigerator.



  • 2 cups chilled carrot juice (fresh or bottled - make sure it's 100% carrot juice)
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 large frozen banana
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 5-6 drops liquid vanilla-flavored stevia or pure maple syrup, to taste
  • ~1/2 tsp. fresh ginger root
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon


  1. Put all ingredients in a high-speed or regular blender and process until smooth.
  2. Serve.
