Sugar Free Pumpkin Smoothie

Pumpkin is a great fall and winter vegetable to enjoy. Pumpkins are very high in fiber and iron. They are also a rich source of beta-carotenes, which helps to prevent certain types of cancers, such as stomach, lungs and colon. If you love the flavor of pumpkin and want to enjoy it as a nourishing protein drink, this smoothie is wonderful and so simple to make. This recipe makes 2 large glasses. Bon Appétit!

Add the following to your blender:

½ can organic pumpkin

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 scoop vanilla whey protein

1 frozen banana

1 Tbs. raisins or a pinch of Stevia, according to your sweetness level

1 tsp. cinnamon

½ tsp. nutmeg

1/8 tsp. cloves

Pinch of ginger

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Blend until well mixed. If it is too thick for you, add a bit more almond milk.


  • Hi Dr V,
    First of all thank you so much for your audio book. It has taken me 2 days to listen to half of it on and off and it is giving me a sense of confidence in moving forward with my healing journey.

    Secondly, I am curious about whey. I thought that you didn’t recommend dairy when on a healing journey and also I understood that whey caused inflammation.

    Could you kindly clarify this for me.

    Sincerely and with gratitude,

    • Whey protein is a full spectrum power-food that has many benefits such as boosting the Immune System and increasing glutathione production. Glutathione is a primary and potent anti-oxidant that is produced inside your cells.

  • This sounds yummy! In regards to whey, are there any brands that you could recommend that are free of casein and heavy metals?
