Nothing says autumn like seeing pumpkin patches pop up all over, and these beautiful gourds filling store shelves. It means it’s time to decorate and indulge in your favorite pumpkin flavored recipes!

Making your own homemade pumpkin puree couldn’t be easier and I highly recommend you try it this year!

Just do it one afternoon when you and possibly your little ones have some time – they will LOVE to help scrape out those nutritious pumpkin seeds for roasting – your house will smell amazing – and one big batch will serve you all season!

Of course, you could use a potato masher or a regular blender or food processor, but it only takes a few minutes to blend AND clean in a Blendtec or Vitamix blender. 🙂

Because pumpkin puree has many nutritional benefits including being high in fiber, it’s a great addition to your smoothie recipes such as our Protein Packed Pumpkin Peanut Butter Smoothie, muffins and other baking recipes, used as baby food, or you can even stir a bit into your morning yogurt, steel cut oats or oatmeal.

Course Vegetable Puree


  • 2 small pie pumpkins OR 1 large pumpkin
  • Filtered water


  • Using a sharp knife and a steady hand, cut pumpkin in half.
  • Use a spoon to scrape out the pulp and seeds and place into a colander for rinsing.
  • Place pumpkins on a baking sheet and roast at 350 (small pumpkins) to 400 degrees (large pumpkin) for 45 min to an hour - or until fork tender.
  • Peel off the skin OR use a spoon to scrape out the tender pumpkin and place in your blender jar with a 1 Tbsp of water.
  • For Blendtec: Fill jars halfway. Using TWISTER jar, use SPEED 4 for 10-15 seconds, turning lid counterclockwise during blending. Using FOURSIDE jar, use SPEED 4 for up to 15 seconds. If blade is spinning freely, stop machine, remove lid and with rubber spatula push ingredients toward blade, then continue blending on SPEED 4 until desired consistency is reached.
  • For Vitamix: Fill 3/4 full, may require more water. Turn machine on, and increase to speed 4 or 5. Remove lid plug and use tamper to push ingredients toward the blade. Blend for 20-30 seconds, until desired consistency is reached.
  • Repeat until all pumpkin is pureed.
  • All done! Enjoy!! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments! 🙂 Tag @BlenderBabes & #BlenderBabes

Easy Homemade Pumpkin Puree

The bright orange flesh of a pumpkin is loaded with key minerals and much-needed fiber for better digestion.

Most people don’t realize that pumpkin is a GREAT source of potassium! It has 10 percent of your daily requirement – move over banana!

One cup of pumpkin puree also provides 7.1 grams of fiber – combined with potassium to support healthy digestion. Not only that, but 1 cup also gives you 3.4 grams of iron and tons of vitamin A, both boosting your immune system.

Reports indicate that pumpkin also reduces inflammation, potentially preventing chronic conditions like Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
