Healthy Recipe for Chocolate Pumpkin Seed Spread


Healthy Chocolate Pumpkin-tella Spread

Write a review


2 cups raw, shelled pumpkin seeds
2 1/2 cups dates, soaked overnight and drained
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup of plain hemp milk (or any milk or milk alternative of choice)

In a powerful food processor, blend the pumpkin seeds for several minutes until they turn into a butter-like consistency (stop several times during the process to scrape down the sides and push the seed meal back into the center of the blender). Then add in all of the other ingredients and continue blending until the spread becomes smooth.
