Easy Healthy Pumpkin Recipes You'll Love!

Crisp leaves, warm lattes, and lots of decorative gourds - it’s pumpkin season, friends! This list of easy, healthy pumpkin recipes is a true delight. I can wholeheartedly recommend all of these recipes. Pumpkin is not only a delicious - it’s healthy too! It’s rich in vitamin A, nutrient dense, and lower in calories because it’s 94% water (source). In North America, pumpkins are harvested (and at their tastiest) in September and October (source).

We often associate them with Halloween and Thanksgiving, but they’re a wonderful fruit to be enjoyed all autumn long (pumpkins are technically a fruit because they have seeds). Obviously, it’s easy to buy canned pumpkin puree, but if you want to roast a pumpkin and make your own puree, I’d recommend Alton Brown’s simple pumpkin puree recipe.

Whether you’re looking for a healthy pumpkin dessert recipe or a healthy pumpkin dinner recipe - I’m sure you’ll find a recipe you love here. And please feel free to share your favorite easy healthy pumpkin recipe in the comments below!
