Perfect to spread on toast, stir into Greek yogurt, or top your hot cereal in the morning!

  • 15 oz. pumpkin puree, 100% pure, canned, organic
  • 1 med. apple, red, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 c. water, purified
  • 3 tbs. maple syrup, pure, organic
  • 10 prunes, dried, pitted, organic
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon, ground, organic
  • 1 tsp. spice, pumpkin pie, organic
  • 1/4 tsp. clove, ground, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon zest, from fresh, organic lemons
  • 1/4 tsp. ginger, fresh, organic

Peel apple and cut into pieces. Chop dried, pitted prunes.

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan on the stove. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and let simmer for 1 1/2 hours, stirring frequently.

Transfer entire mixture to a food processor, and blend until very smooth (add water to loosen if necessary). Taste, and adjust sweetness to desired level by adding a little more maple syrup.

Return to pot and cook for 30 minutes, until it has reached a thick creamy consistency.

Cool, then transfer to an airtight container and store in fridge for up to a week, or in the freezer for long-term. I like to divide into smaller containers in 7-day portions and grab one out of the freezer on Sundays when I am food prepping for the week. Enjoy!
