Every year when fall rolls around we recount a story about my son, the foodie. We were at a restaurant for brunch and, after looking over the menu for a good long time my son had a question for the waitress.

“Um, excuse me, do your pumpkin pancakes have actual pumpkin in them, or just pumpkin spice?” The waitress had to go and ask, but that is when we learned my son is a true pumpkin lover.

Now, when “Pumpkin Spice this and that” commercials start to appear he scoffs. “That's not even real pumpkin!”

And you know, I am with him- Real pumpkin is not only tasty but healthy too! It is naturally fat free and has fiber plus healthy vitamins and minerals.

So we all know any food is healthiest when eaten in moderation, so of course that goes for these healthier versions of your favorite decadent pumpkin desserts. We all deserve a treat once in a while, and it is nice to sneak in some healthy nutrients while you indulge.

  1. Pumpkin Nice Cream – If you have never heard of nice cream, it is the clever name that refers to ice cream made entirely out of frozen banana chunks (although you can add things to it!).

This version adds pumpkin and omg is it heaven.
