It’s not quite autumn, but it’s already that time of year: pumpkin spice season!
From a pumpkin spice smoothie to spiced pumpkin oatmeal to pumpkin spice muffins, we’ve got the recipes to satisfy your pumpkin spice cravings! And they are all packed with actual pumpkin—a nutrition powerhouse loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can boost your health!
Pumpkins get their bright orange color from beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant that supports the immune system, promotes healthy skin, and may even reduce cancer risk. That’s because beta-carotene inhibits oxidation and protects the body from free radicals, which can damage the cells and lead to cancer and other chronic illnesses.
