Now that fall is here it’s time for pumpkin everything! Use this nutrient packed vegetable to create three variations on pumpkin butter. It is so easy and delicious. Your kids will love it.
Coming up with healthy snacks can be a challenge. Kids want sweet and tasty. You want quick and nutritious.
Honey sweetened pumpkin butter is the perfect solution!
Pumpkin is not a vegetable most people eat very often. But it really is packed with nutrients. Pumpkin contains vitamin A (a lot of it!), vitamin C, potassium, copper and iron in addition to lots of phyto-nutrients. So it makes the perfect component to a healthy snack like pumpkin butter.
There are three variations of pumpkin butter – original, chocolate and sunflower. They each have a unique flavor that your kids are sure to love. And with only three or four ingredients they are all easy to make.
It only takes about ten minutes to make all three pumpkin butters! It is that easy. After a few minutes in the refrigerator they are ready to eat. I like to prepare them in advance. Then snack time is easy. The pumpkin butter will last up to a week in the refrigerator.
Are you ready to whip up one or all three of these tasty fall treats? Head on over to Super Healthy Kids where I show you just how easy it is. Then surprise your kids with a delicious after school treat.
Don’t forget to really add to the fun by making a batch of pumpkin spice graham crackers to go along with the pumpkin butter. Maybe homework time will go a bit smoother with a fun snack. At the very least your kids will have their mouths and bellies full of good stuff.
