Just featured in Sweat RX Magazine: “Gracious Living Pumpkin Chai Power Smoothie”


I’m on raw, vegan fire!! Another Gracious Living recipe just out in a popular North American Cross-Fit magazine SweatRXmag.

This recipe was a huge hit last month at my Muskoka & Cape Breton Yoga Detox Retreats….time to power up  on your Vitamin A!

Gracious Living Pumpkin Chai  Power Smoothie

It’s true, you can make a pumpkin smoothie without cooking the pumpkin! Delicious, creamy, nutrient dense, filled with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals making it a fantastic smoothie for all warriors.

  1. 1 cup raw pumpkin cut into small pieces

  2. 2 frozen bananas

  3. 1 cup cashews (or almonds)

  4. 2 tbsp hemp seeds

  5. natural sweetener to taste

  6. 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

  7. 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

  8. 1/4 tsp green cardomom seeds

  9. pinch ground cloves

  10. 2 or more cups water to desired consistency

  11. 1 cup ice

Blend until smooth. Top with sprinkled cinnamon.  Delicious!

Extra protein for Recovery: *Use SUNWARRIOR vanilla protein powder (raw, plant-based protein with a complete amino acid profile exceptionally high in Glutamine, Arginine, Lysine, Luecine, and branch chain amino acids).

To reduce inflammation: *Throw in a piece of fresh ginger to taste

To hydrate and maintain electrolyte balance: *Use coconut water instead of water

For added energy: *Use green tea instead of water (steep green tea, then cool, and use instead of water)

For extra fibre: *Add spoon chia seeds

To boost immune system: *Sprinkle bee pollen


Together we truly can transform the planet, one warrior at a time.
