Scoop out pumpkin seeds and bake pumpkin at 350 for 45 minutes. Once cooled, scoop out the flesh and mash with a fork.
This is an awesome way to use up all those stringy pumpkin seeds!
Blend together 2 cups pumpkin seeds (with all the insides is great), 2 pitted dates, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp fresh grated nutmeg, a few drops vanilla stevia, and 4 cups water. Pour through a fine sieve and serve.
