Vegan Roasted Apple & Pumpkin Butter

I set this spread out as an appetizer this Thanksgiving and I swear, it disappeared better than Houdini himself. Bring this to any one of your holiday parties this winter and it is sure to be a huge hit. You can even try making a double batch and leave your host/hostess with their own jar as a gift…’tis the season!


  • three apples, halved, cored and roasted (400 degrees for 20 minutes)
  • 1 can pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  1. Blend all ingredients together in a high-speed blender (or food processor).
  2. Eat immediately.
  3. Try this with a piece of cheese (vegan of course), sliced apple or even a heaping scoop in your breakfast smoothie. This stuff is the bomb!



About Caley Alyssa

As a D-1 collegiate athlete with a background in nutrition and anatomy, and an internship with a naturopathic center for healing, Caley Alyssa found herself wanting to help people achieve healthier, happier lives.

From there she went onto study with Shiva Rea and obtained a certification to work with children and at risk youth. In 2010, Caley’s quest to bring health and happiness to others lead her to enroll with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York to become a Holistic Health Coach, registered with the American Drugless Practitioners.

She designs and leads seasonal cleanses for individuals, yoga studios and corporate businesses sharing her lifelong journey of finding balance, wellness and happiness in all aspects of life!
