Forget a #PSL … make a pumpkin drink with a little more substance. In our Spiced Pumpkin Smoothie, pureed pumpkin and a banana blend together smoothly, and fresh ginger and cinnamon will really warm you up. Plus, pumpkins are loaded with beta-carotene, they’re low in calories, fat, and sodium, high in fiber, and they’re good sources of Vitamin A, Vitamin B, potassium, protein, and iron. Enjoy all that this quintessential fall vegetable has to offer!

Sweet Potato Overnight Oats

We love overnight oats because all the prep can be done the night (or up to 3 days) beforehand! And you can customize the basic recipe any way, so sticking with seasonal flavors and produce is no trouble at all.

Banana Chocolate Overnight Oats

Banana chocolate overnight oats is the kind of recipe we love because you get all the satisfaction of a nutritious breakfast, but all the hard work takes place in the fridge while you’re sleeping!

Peach Mint Smoothie

The Peach Mint Smoothie is one refreshing summer treat! Using frozen peaches and banana ensures you get a creamy, cold consistency without using ice, which dilutes the flavors. Adding some freshly pressed carrot juice not only gives this healthy beverage that beautiful vibrant orange hue, it also introduces a dose of vitamins and dietary fiber to the mix. We added a serving of chia seeds to the recipe for a nice little omega-3 boost. Just don’t forget the Aloe vera juice!

Peachberry and Cream Smoothie

Make the most of your summer bounty! The Peachberry and Cream Smoothie is a delicious variation of peaches and cream, and when blended with fresh, local produce, it turns into quite the seasonal treat.
