Pumpkin Spice Butter

Published on: 10/21/2018

I LOVE all things pumpkin this time of year.  It’s super simple to get canned pumpkin and add a fall flair to any recipe from quick breads to chili to oatmeal to yogurt.  Pumpkin adds a special festive flavor, as well as nourishing boost to your bowl, plate or cup!

I am going to whip up a simple pumpkin spice butter with only 3 ingredients and no added sugar!.  You gotta love it, right?  Tasty, sweet, and sweetened naturally.   So, how is it sweet?  Prunes a.k.a. dried plums.  Puree prunes into this pumpkin to give it a sweet kick, plus a nourishing boost.

Did you know that prunes are great for bone health as they are packed with good-for-your-bones nutrients, such as potassium, vitamin K, phosphorus and boron. I love that they taste great!
