Pumpkin Pie in a Bowl

From Natalia Rose

With a piece of raw cinnamon toast.

2 c carrot juice
1 cup raw sweet potato (about 1/2 of medium one), peeled and cubed
4-6 dates, pitted (depends on how sweet you like it)
1/2 avocado
Pumpkin pie spice or a dash of cloves, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg to taste

Blend ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender until smooth.

This is not an all local recipe but all ingredients can be bought trash free. For Ann Arbor residents:
-All produce can be purchased packaging free.
-Spices can be bought in bulk at the People's Food Co-op.
-Dates can be bought in bulk at Whole Foods

  3. sam, i would like to read more about your thoughts on local foods, the issues that you raise by doing this project. not everyone is doing what you are doing, and i wonder what people's reactions are. what are your ethical considerations in doing this project? do you feel like you need to do more?

  4. Hi! I just found your blog- I love your About page- very cool!
    This soup looks soooo delicious- I only wish I wasn't allergic to avocado. I'm looking forward to reading more from you!
