We love pumpkin in this house. I love the taste of a freshly baked pumpkin pie topped with lots of whipped cream at Thanksgiving and pretty much any time of the year. However did you know that pumpkin is actually a very versatile superfood that can be used year round? I was recently challenged to use Libby’s Pumpkin to create the perfect spring recipe. We created a Thanksgiving dessert that is so light and delicious that you might just love it as much as we do! Even better that it's one of our recipes with butterscotch pudding. We hope that you love this Pumpkin Butterscotch Pudding Parfait or butterscotch parfait.

Pumpkin the Superfood

Pumpkin is a superfood and:

  • is a good source of fiber and a great source of Vitamin A.
  • can reduce the fat in some of your favorite recipes.
  • can also be stirred into jarred or prepared sauces to reduce sodium per serving.
  • can be used as a substitute in your favorite recipes to reduce calories.

Libby's Pumpkin can be used year round for a variety of recipes

Did you know that Pumpkin is a versatile vegetable in that can be used in a variety of sweet and savory dishes throughout the year? I have never thought about it like that but pumpkin really is something that can be used year round. Pumpkin also works great as an add-in. Stir a couple of tablespoons into a variety of foods for an added boost of fiber, Vitamin A and flavor – oatmeal, smoothies, macaroni and cheese. We have started adding it to our smoothies. Pumpkin makes our smoothies even more creamy and delicious. Keeping pumpkin on hand throughout the year is also a great idea. Leftover pumpkin can be portioned or put into an ice try and stored in the freezer so it ready whenever you want it.
