Raw Easy Pumpkin Recipes

Favorite Pumpkin Recipes @Rawmazing.comPumpkin has become the star fruit of fall. Recipes for pumpkin lattes, pumpkin pies, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin breads, etc. flood food blogs this time of year. It may drive you a little batty but before you submit to pumpkin overdose. But before you pull all of your hair out…

Take a look at these nutritional facts:

  • Pumpkin is a great source of Vitamin A. One cup of pumpkin contains over 200% of the recommended daily allowance of this eye-saving,  wrinkle fighting, imune boosting vitamin.
  • Pumpkin is also a great source of natural fiber. Combine that with it’s low calorie count, pumpkin can fill you up and keep you feeling fuller, longer without tons of calories. There is only 49 calories per cup!
  • Pumpkin is high in beta-carotene. And beta-cartoene is your friend. It is a powerful antioxidant which means it helps get rid of damaging free radicals that damage your cells and DNA.
  • Pumpkin is also high in vitamins C and E.

In honor of fall and the nutrient packed pumpkin, we bring you some of the favorite easy pumpkin and pumpkin seed recipes from Rawmazing.

Is Pumpkin a Fruit?

And as for that fruit reference? Yes, pumpkin is considered to be a fruit. And if you really want to get technical…it is a berry! And don’t be surprised if I sneak a few more pumpkin recipes on the blog this fall. It’s just too good to pass up.

    Local gooseneck pumpkins taste something like bubble gum when raw, rich. It made me buy Craisins (you can get them raw & organic and do your own “craizining” w/agave) for a slaw. I added some raisin, too, and dates, but sometimes I’m such a sweety [they tell me]. Cardamom & real paprika. Soak just a few crushed onion and garlic in acid for 20 minutes as background, just a tiny pinch of real French Dijon if they have some near you (for background depth). I been waiting all week to get more of this local wonderkin. Sunday is the grower’s only market in West Reading, PA. Luv yer stuff & I wish I had one of those p’kn’ cookies of yers in my hand right this very windy, chilly moment. Soon enuf, the snows will come . . .

      Thank you so much, Ellim. I am not going to lie, it has been tough for the last 8 months with moving and the huge renovation project. They are almost done with the main house (addition to follow) and that will be wonderful.

    Just learned two new things – you can eat pumpkin raw, and pumpkin is a fruit!!
    Another one to add to the random-things-that-are-actually-fruits list (avocado anyone?!)

    Keep them pumpkin recipes coming, because I am definitely not complaining!

    These all sounds delicious and like great ways to incorporate pumpkin! I can not get enough at this time of year. I am especially looking forward to trying the Pumpkin Cranberry Ginger Cream Parfaits. They will be a gorgeous addition to a holiday table!
    Thank you!
