4 Healthy Ways to Eat Homemade Pumpkin Butter

pumpkin butter recipe In an earlier post, I showed you how to make homemade pumpkin butter.

Now, what do you do with that delicious jar of pumpkin-y goodness?

Here are 4 very simple, but delicious ways to eat pumpkin butter:

1.  Greek Yogurt with Pumpkin Butter

pumpkin butter and greek yogurt Greek yogurt is not only delicious, but a wonderful source of protein and Calcium!  In fact, the Cabot lowfat plain Greek yogurt I buy has (in one cup) 150 calories, 22 grams of protein (the same amount as about 3 ounces of lean meat!), 40% of your daily calcium along with 25% of Vitamin A, D, C and E!

2.  Waffle Topped with Pumpkin Butter and Yogurt

Pumpkin butter and yogurt (preferably Greek yogurt) can be a wonderful topping for waffles.

Be sure to choose a whole grain waffle for maximum nutrition!  This would be a very good balanced, nutritious and delicious breakfast.

3.  Cottage Cheese with Pumpkin Butter

Always choose either low fat or fat free versions.  One 1/2-cup serving of low fat cottage cheese has only 90 calories and 13 grams of protein.

4.  English Muffin Topped with Pumpkin Butter

Again, choose a whole grain bread.  My all-time favorite is Food For Life’s 7 Grain english muffin.
