20 Ways to Sneak Pumpkin into Any Meal
From pesto to pizza, you can squeeze this fall super food into any delicious dish
Sure, you can carve a pumpkin. But did you know you could also enjoy it in a bowl of oats, on a pizza, or in a fancy cocktail? We’ve rounded up 20 easy ways to enjoy this superfruit that comes with as much versatility as it does protein, fiber, and everyone’s favorite fall flavor.
Waffles: Le’go my ego and give me the pumpkin! For a crispier (and healthier) morning meal, one cup of pumpkin puree will spice up any ordinary waffle.
Oatmeal: Pumpkin pie for breakfast? We went there. For a creamy bowl of oats, simply add some pumpkin puree. Topped with graham crackers, pecans, and a touch of maple syrup, and it’s basically (almost) pumpkin pie.
Yogurt: It may be hard to find pumpkin flavored yogurt in the dairy section, but luckily it’s easy to make at home. Simply combine ½ cup of plain, low-fat Greek yogurt with about ¼ cup canned pumpkin, and add any desired sweeteners and toppings of choice (we’re fans of cinnamon and pecans!).
Muffins: Blueberry muffins are so two weeks ago. Pumpkin puree perks up any ordinary breakfast treat. Swap in whole-wheat flour and sprinkle some pumpkin seeds on top for a healthy start to the day!
