It’s fall time and Halloween is just a week away. That means there are pumpkins everywhere. Not only are pumpkins great for carving, but they are also great for eating as well.

Here are four recipes using the big orange squash:

Pumpkin Green Smoothie via EatDrinkBetter

This recipe calls for canned pumpkin, but why use that when you have so many fresh ones readily available?

Not feeling the green smoothie? Then check out:

You can have this with your breakfast or as a snack during the day. There are many substitutions that can be made as well.

This dish is dairy-, gluten- and sugar-free.

The sweet pumpkin dishes aren’t for you? You might want to make this,
