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
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
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.
