3 Pumpkin Recipes to Enjoy Fall Mornings and to Kick Start Your Day
Dark, grey clouds, sunless day times and the cold, chilly wind blowing all conspire to make Fall early mornings to be among the laziest times of the year. Before you become tempted to stay in bed and call in sick for work, consider for a moment that all you probably need to motivate you to get up is a hearty breakfast.
Try these three quick, easy-to-do recipes that will not only liven up your senses but also give you the energy you need to take a stroll along streets lined with fired up trees, do what you got to do for a living and play out your very many roles as a mom, a wife, a daughter and more. Here are three of your best breakfast options for Fall – all made of this month’s favorite pumpkin, of course!
1. Pumpkin Waffles:
Is there a better way to start your day than with a waffle and a rich, flavorful and freshly brewed coffee? You know what the merits are! This duo is so easy to prepare that you can literally keep your eyes half-closed while you’re preparing your breakfast. First, cube your pumpkin and drop these in boiling water. Once they’re cooked, mash, set aside and cool. Prepare your waffle batter – premix, butter, fresh milk and half of your mashed pumpkin. Set it in the waffle maker as you prepare your creamy pumpkin spread.
To make the spread, pour sweetened milk and cream into your remaining mashed pumpkin and stir. Once your waffle is cooked, pour a generous amount of the spread on top then cover with another waffle. Wonderfully delicious!
2. Pumpkin Smoothie:
If you can only manage a few minutes to prep your breakfast whether you kept snoozing your alarm or simply just prefer a smoothie, this is the perfect pumpkin power up recipe for you. Scoop or dice your pumpkin. Pick up any starchy fruit that you can find in the fridge, ideally banana. Simply blend these with some honey and ice cold water. If you prefer to add in more nutrition, turn it into a yogurt or protein shake.

3. Pumpkin Scones:
When you seriously doubt you’ll get up earlier on a Fall morning to prepare a hearty breakfast for one, then you should consider preparing a pumpkin recipe ahead of time. How about some scones?
Pre-heat your oven to about 400 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. In a bowl, mix pureed pumpkins with pecan nuts or walnuts, butter, 2 cups of whole wheat flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, low-fat fresh milk. Add a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Fold in all ingredients well. Line your tray with oil or pastry paper. Spread the batter and cut with cookie cutter. Bake for 15 minutes or until you see the batter turn to golden brown.
Pumpkin – Fall’s favorite food, can be made into more than just delicacies for Halloween parties. These darlings can easily power you up for lazy, Fall days to come.
