Four Favorite Pumpkin Recipes for Fall
Pumpkin recipes are fall’s sweet spot, as you bake alongside your besties and your seasonal spirit grows. Do you know what else is rising during this time? The deliciously sweet pumpkin bread you have in the oven! This orange squash is everywhere in the autumn, from your flavorful lattes to your front porch. And those who don’t incorporate it into their favorite recipes are seriously missing out. It’s not just the sweet flavor that quite literally gives you a taste of fall, but also the health benefits you may or may not have even known about. Pumpkin contains beta-carotene, potassium, vitamins C & E, fiber, carotenoids, and more, ready to give you a healthy snack between your fall festivities. Here are our four favorite pumpkin recipes!
Pumpkin Seed Cheese
You need the best dips for your Friendsgiving celebrations and other family gatherings, and let’s just say that pumpkin seed cheese does the job. It isn’t actually a cheese at all, but rather a blend of pumpkin seeds, olive oil, maple syrup, and more that you can spread on your crackers for the most mouthwatering appetizer, ever! It’s easy to fall into (pun intended) patterns of eating the same snacks every fall season, but this pumpkin seed cheese is an unconventional way to upgrade your menu.

Pumpkin Pie in a Glass
What do you do when you want pumpkin pie for a midday snack or dessert, but don’t have time to put on your apron? Put it in a glass, of course. All you need is a few fall versions of your everyday kitchen favorites, like unsweetened almond milk, pureed pumpkin, and cashew butter, to make this treat happen. It is a healthy after-school snack for the kids or post-dinner treat for you, and takes only a few minutes for the most incredibly fall-worthy taste!
