Presto! Pesto! | Krysten, Health Connoisseur

Is my title…a little on the corny side? Haha. I don’t care, you!!
What I mean by my title is this pesto is suuuuuuuper fast & easy to make. And of course, as always, healthy.

So fast actually- that I didn’t even get to take a good picture. Haha. Oh well. Look how pretty & green it is. SO I’ve always made pesto the same way. And at first, after all my research earlier I told you about in a previous post on all the greens I need to avoid from now on. I thought, how is this going to be good if no spinach & kale are allowed in on the pesto party? Oh well. It turned out great. Super creamy & delicious.

Pumpkin Seed Pesto:

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend babayyyy, blend!
(Adjust all amounts to your own liking)

– 1 Cup Basil
– 1/2 Cup Pumpkin Seeds
– 3 Cloves Garlic (I can go 4- I don’t care how my breath smells)
– 1-2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
– 1/4 cup water ( add in slowly and check consistency before continuing to add it all in.)

  1. This looks DELICIOUS!! All of the store bought ones that I have seen have cheese or dairy in it which I can not have. Just curious though…why do you have to stay away from certain greens?
