  3. In a separate large bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, honey, apple cider vinegar, vanilla extract, water and almond milk. Add 10 sprays of coconut oil. Then whisk until thoroughly combined, making it as smooth as possible.
  4. Mix all the ingredients together then and in the chocolate chunks or chocolate chips or nuts or dried fruit; fold them in slowly.
