We've officially crossed over the threshold into "pumpkin season" and escaping the scent of pumpkin spice is futile. Don't even try.
But you know what? We don't hate it. In fact, fall — and by association, pumpkin-flavored everything — provides a cozy comfort we are totally ready for after that hot girl summer in the desert.
If you're ready for Pumpkinfest 2019, curl up with a blankie and check out three of our favorite pumpkin and fall-inspired recipes we've ever featured on the Stasher Life blog.
Maple-Glazed Pumpkin Donuts
One of the best donut recipes we've ever tried. For real. These maple-frosted pumpkin donuts are high in protein and refined sugar-free.
Warming Pumpkin Smoothie
The smoothie itself isn't warm, but the spices in this delicious pumpkin smoothie certainly are. Ginger, cinnamon, turmeric, and cardamom not only help soothe and relieve GI issues, inflammation, and lower blood pressure, but they really warm you up to match the mood of the season. Cheers to your gut health!
Vegan and Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins
This amazing seasonal muffin recipe features fresh pumpkin puree — which, before you freak out, is actually a heck of a lot easier than it seems to make — and satisfy all the essential dietary restrictions you might find in the workplace, brunch, or within your own household. Eat away!
