Health Tip: Enjoy a Healthy Pumpkin Treat

Health Tip: Enjoy a Healthy Pumpkin Treat

11/07/13

(HealthDay News) -- Pumpkins are a sure sign of fall, but they're good for more than carving on Halloween. Pumpkins add flavor to foods, and they are a good source of potassium and vitamins C and A.

Try these pumpkin recipes, courtesy of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics:

  • Blend fat-free milk, pumpkin, frozen vanilla yogurt and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon to create a healthy pumpkin smoothie.
  • Make pumpkin pancakes by adding canned pumpkin or fresh-cooked pumpkin to your favorite pancake recipe.
  • Bake healthier muffins and breads by substituting 1/4 cup canned pumpkin in place of egg.
  • Make pumpkin soup by combining mashed, cooked pumpkin with fat free low-sodium chicken broth, evaporated fat-free milk, onion and nutmeg.
  • Make homemade pumpkin ravioli by stuffing shells with canned pumpkin and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
