For pumpkin season, I wanted to experiment with a healthy and delicious pumpkin recipe to share with mindbodygreen readers.
When I test a new recipe, I tend to go crazy with trying different variations to perfect it. After many attempts, I have to say this recipe is a winner! The flavors, sweetness, and texture are on point and I think you guys will really love it.
You can use canned pumpkin puree or you can make your own — which is easier than you think; just follow the steps below.
If you choose to make your own puree, don't use the large Halloween carving pumpkins, I would recommend you go for Hokkaido pumpkin or sugar pumpkin as the flesh of these tends to be sweeter, creamier, and more suitable for cooking.
You can always substitute sweet potatoes for the pumpkin too!
