Before we get into the recipe, let’s talk about the benefits of pumpkin! Pumpkin is high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals while being low in calories and high in fiber. It’s also a great source of beta-carotene, a carotenoid that your body converts into vitamin A. Because pumpkin is high in vitamins A, C and E, it can also help boost your immune system.
