In Lauren Rae’s latest LiveStream with Complete Nutrition, she explains the basics of the paleo diet and other tips if you wish to eat similar to cavemen.
1 cup of pumpkin puree, canned
2 tsp of coconut oil
½ tsp Vanilla Extract
2-½ Tbsp of raw honey or maple syrup
1 Tbsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
Sprinkle of salt *optional
In a small saucepan, bring the pumpkin puree, coconut oil and spices to a simmer over medium heat and reduce it to low.
Add the honey to the mixture and stir well.
Allow the pumpkin butter to cool off before consuming.
Top with freshly grated nutmeg. Store in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Hint: Some pumpkin purees tend to be a little more watery than others, so you may have to simmer it longer to get the right consistency, keeping in mind that the coconut oil will solidify once the butter is cooled.
