Ingredients

  • -1 sugar pumpkin
  • -1 tablespoon melted coconut oil optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Wash pumpkin well, then cut in half and scoop out pumpkin seeds and pumpkin “guts”.
  • Lay pumpkin, flesh side down, on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove tray from oven. Check that the pumpkin skin is a beautiful burnt orange color and can easily be pierced with a knife. Flip pumpkins so they are skin side down and baste with melted coconut oil.
  • Cook for another 30 minutes or until pumpkin flesh is soft and can easily be scooped from the skin.
  • Allow the pumpkin to cool, scoop out the flesh and put in your blender (we use a Blentec in my house). Add 2 tablespoons of water and blend, stopping blender to scrape down sides as needed.
  • Use in your favorite recipes and/or portion into freezer bags and freeze for upcoming months.
