The Great Pumpkin Spread: 3 healthy pumpkin spreads

Posted: Updated:
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (MyFox Detroit) -

These recipes are available courtesy of Chef Paul.

The main ingredient for all recipes is pure pumpkin.  You can steam your own by baking it or roasting it for these recipes.  By doing so the richness of the flavor is deepened and the natural sugars are eliminated.

If you don't want to make your own pumpkin it is readily available in canned product. But remember to only buy the "pure" pumpkin - the one without any of the added spices or sugars.

Pumpkin is very high in Vitamin A, Beta Carotene, and has lots of other great nutrients and lots of fiber.

1 tablespoon vanilla protein powder
