PUMPKIN HEALTH BENEFITS

Not only is fall’s signature squash versatile enough to make delicious smoothies, breads, soups, and lattes, it also packs some powerful healthy perks…as long as you take it easy on the pie 🙂  See below for some wonderful health benefits.

  • Feel Fuller. Touting only 50 calories per cup, mashed pumpkin has 3 grams of fiber, fiber keeping you fuller longer so you eat less overall.
  • Boost Vision. A cup of cubed pumpkin contains almost twice the recommended daily intake of vitamin A, which promotes good vision, especially in dim light.
  • Sleep Better. Pumpkin seeds are rich in tryptophan which contribute to after-meal sleepiness.
  • Have a Healthier Heart.
  • All that fiber can also help your heart.

    1. Hi Rhonda! You can sub dates with any natural sweetener of choice. 🙂 Dates add a lot of fiber so just keep in mind using honey, maple syrup or another sweetener will provide less fiber to your smoothie. Hope you enjoy this one! Warmly ~ Tarashaun

  1. The recipe sounds great, but I have a question. What in that recipe has trans-fats in it? I’m surprised there are any trans-fats in it at all! Thanks for your answer and for some great recipes.

    1. Hey Pat! THANK YOU so much for bringing this to my attention! There are NO trans fats in this – there are healthy unsaturated fats but info put in the wrong place. 🙂 HAPPY BLENDING! ~Tarashaun

  2. I recently watched a YouTube video how to freeze bananas.

    Is it important to thinly slice bananas when you are going to freeze them ? Or does it work fine if you just cut one banana into 4 pieces ?
