How to make a Healthy Pumpkin
Hello! I am so glad that you're here. Welcome to the Fall Ideas Tour of 26 bloggers that have come together to share ideas for everything fall including mantel decor, tablescape ideas, DIY projects, recipes, and fall porch decor ideas. Today, I'm sharing a healthy pumpkin
My family and I have been trying to make healthier choices in what we eat and with fall here and the cooler weather (less outdoor time) I want to be sure we stay on track. Some of us have been more successful than others but I'm like the Cookie Monster 😉 It's hit or miss for me but my goal has been to make dishes that I actually don't mind eating and this, thankfully, fits the bill.
Sometimes, it seems like healthy and sweet is an anomaly. Does anyone else remember when healthy food that wasn't natural ( like fruits and veggies) tasted like cardboard and had all the flavor of a shoe?
Well, this doesn't taste like cardboard or a shoe at all and it's so good that I ended up having to make these for everyone in my house and there were no complaints just requests for more. I also like that it didn't cost a lot to make. I get most of my groceries from Aldi, Sam's Club, and Costo and that really helps to keep the cost of eating healthily reasonable.

As with any of my recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
If you have a Nutribullet that's what I recommend for this recipe. I don't like getting out my blender unless I have to, plus I can leave the Nutribullet on my counter without it looking messy.
