Pumpkin nut butter recipe

Did you know that pumpkin is for more than just pumpkin pie, and is also healthy for you? Rich in fibre, it can support a healthy digestive system, help balance your blood sugars, and even contribute to healthy weight maintenance. It is rich in vitamin A and beta-carotene to help fight cancer cells, treat and prevent eye disease, and support healthy, youthful skin. The vitamin C and vitamin A can also boost your immune power. It even has more potassium than a banana.

Pumpkin Nut Butter
I chose cashews and sunflower seeds here, but you can choose other nuts and seeds, if you like.
