I’m dropping in quickly this Saturday morning before I hit the gym.  I just wanted to share this simple and quick recipe – Diary Free Pumpkin Spiced Almond Milk. When I was back from my recent trip down to Arizona and Sante Fe, we did a little stop over to Trader Joe’s.  It’s a great place to grab organic produce, organic dairy, and even organic canned foods and it’s affordable.

I got my hands on one of TJ’s fall seasonal products which was their Spiced Pumpkin Almond Milk.  When I woke up the next morning for work, I was dying to add a splash into my bullet-proof coffee.  YUM!




Now, I normally stray off most fruit as I try to watch my sugar intake as I am quite sensitive to sugar.  But, if you’re not like me, pumpkin is an amazing source of Vitamin A and a great immune system booster which is great in the fall and winter.  But, come on, this bevie screams Fall doesn’t it?
