3 Mouthwatering (and Healthy!) Pumpkin Recipes
October is here, along with chillier weather, spooky costumes, and of course… PUMPKIN EVERYTHING!
At ACHS, we’re big fans of the pumpkin fad. Why? Because pumpkins and their seeds, for one thing, are quite healthy. Secondly, they add a delicious flavor to many recipes. From traditional pies to savory soups, this squash is the “Pumpkin King” of fall favorites.
In honor of our favorite festive gourd, here are three mouthwatering and healthy pumpkin recipes to enjoy this fall.
Healthy Pumpkin Recipe Roundup
Holistic Pumpkin Spiced Latte Recipe
Arguably the most famous pumpkin concoction in recent years, the #PSL has become a household name thanks to Starbucks. However, order this holiday beverage and you’re looking at a whopping 30 grams of sugar and 380 calories. Yikes! Not ideal if you’re trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
That’s why we created a holistic pumpkin spiced latte recipe full of natural and organic ingredients for those of us who prefer a less-than-lethal dose of sugar with our morning pick-me-up.
Herbed Pumpkin Soup Recipe
Harvest season is the perfect time for soup. Plus, soup is easy to make in large batches in a short amount of time. Spend a few hours on Sunday evening making this recipe, and you’ve got lunch for the week.
I’ve always been a fan of squash-based soups, and pumpkin does not disappoint. I make this healthy soup every October to celebrate the oncoming of autumn. Packed full of veggies, mushrooms, and herbs that will support your immunity throughout the cooler seasons, I hope you’ll enjoy my hearty herbed pumpkin soup recipe.
Gluten Free, Grain Free, Dairy Free Pumpkin Pie Recipe
Get ready, because the season of sugary, processed, and irresistible sweet treats is coming. Fall ushers in the holiday season, so it’s always wise to keep a healthy dessert recipe on hand.
This pumpkin pie recipe is not just delicious, it is also gluten free, grain free, dairy free, and a healthy dessert to bring to a Halloween party or your kid’s classroom potluck.
