  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger

  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • Pinch of Himalayan salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice
  • 3 lemon wedges
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds

  1. In a high-speed blender (such as a Vitamix), add the pumpkin puree, lemon juice, ginger, dates, tequila, coconut “cream”, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, salt, water and ice. Process on high speed until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Rub the rims of 3 cocktail glasses with the lemon wedge. Mix together the chia seeds and coconut palm sugar on a small plate and then dip each glass in the mixture. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the glasses and serve at once.


Coconut “cream” is the thick, non-watery part from a coconut milk can.
