Beta Carotene Sipper


Beta Carotene Sipper An Unrefined Vegan

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 Kel brought in a huge pile of carrots – the last ones from the greenhouse harvested before it got too hot – and that forlorn scoop of pumpkin puree chiding me from its glass container in the refrigerator.

    Delicious! I LOVE pumpkin + carrots and chow them every day in mass quantities, so this a wonderful addition to my daily intake (even though I turn orange/yellow afterwards…whoops!). Also, your background/setting is beautiful. 🙂

    Ah, yes. I always end up with plenty of pumpkin left after popping open a can. I will need to try this because it sounds amazing. Also, this post got me VERY excited for fall.

    such gorgeous color! looks even prettier against the blue. looks like you are going good with the book and back to blogging 🙂

    I love the coconut combo with the ginger and heck, I’d drink this up just for the colors alone! Homemade carrot juice is so easy, it’s a real shame to buy it in the store, especially when you can vamp it up like this 😉

      We were lucky to have a great crop of carrots this spring – they were so sweet!

      Thanks, Thalia! Agreed – – and it’s a little taste of fall in the middle of summer :-).

      Hey lady! No apologies necessary. We all step away from time to time – – but I’m happy to “see” you! Hope all is well.
