Pumpkin Power! 12 Things To Do With All That Leftover Pumpkin This Month

October means one thing – it’s nearly Halloween. Which means we’re all going to be left with a lot of excess pumpkin at the end of the month after carving all those scary faces.

So what do you so with all that pumpkin? Well sneakily stuffing it in the bin like you do every year is a bit of a waste. Instead why not try one of these yummy recipes?

1. Pumpkin Spice Latte

2. Classic Pumpkin Soup
