What’s not to like about the holidays, am I right?
Even before the trees start changing colors, my mind is sparkling with holiday excitement. Scarves, hoodies, crisp air, time with family, shopping, snowflakes, mistletoe, music. I absolutely love the holiday season.
The challenge comes when I start taking health into consideration.
Turkey dripping with gravy, yams topped with whipped cream, gingerbread bedazzled with colored frosting and candies and pies upon pies upon pies. The deliciousness never ends!
What should be a time of joy and celebration becomes a battle between myself and my cravings. Keeping portions controlled, plugging my nose to avoid the savory smells while cooking in the kitchen and turning down treat after treat. It’s exhausting and hardly successful. I’m sure you know the story.
But wait! I have good news for you! Or good tidings as the case may be.
I have for you a classic holiday recipe that will not only satisfy your sweet tooth and season spirit, but that is also totally healthy!
What says fall more than pumpkin pie? This Pumpkin Pie Pudding is just the thing for a family dinner, a holiday party, or a backup to keep on hand for when the cravings hit.
This Pumpkin Pie Pudding brings a lot to the table with its wholesome ingredients. The pumpkin itself contains fiber, potassium and vitamin C, which are all good for your heart. The coconut sugar, although it contains little amounts of vitamins and minerals, contains double what granulated sugar has and helps restore good bacteria in the digestive system, making it a much better sweetener option.
The best part about this pumpkin pie pudding is that it contains Organifi Gold Juice.
Organifi Gold contains only the best organic, plant based ingredients such as cinnamon, Reishi, coconut milk, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, lemon balm and vanilla to name a few.
This incredible blend helps boost your immune system with antioxidants, soothe aches and pains with restorative herbs, improve brain function with superfoods and aids digestion with its remedying benefits. And that’s just the beginning of what Organifi Gold can do for you!
So without further ado, let’s make this healthy treat!
Makes: Approx 4 cups

Today, I wanna talk to you about my favorite word.
In fact, it’s the word I chose on repeat for 3 New Years in a row because I was determined to learn how to FULLY own this like a boss!
Do you ever feel that no matter what you do, you can't seem to be completely awake?
Do you go about the day feeling tired, drained and like you can't get your energy levels up to where you need them to be? Does your ability to focus suffer? Is your bed the only thing you're looking forward to by the end of each day? Does it seem to take you longer than usual to understand and process things?
What did you love doing as a kid that you’ve given up as an adult?
