All About Pumpkin Seed Butter

May 12, 2022

Cashews are out, no dairy creamy is still in! We’re taking the cashew butter out of our products, but we’re keeping the same texture and taste you know and love with pumpkin seed butter. Learn a little more about pumpkin seed butter nutrition and why we’re innovating our most-loved formulas with this real ingredient upgrade.

What is Pumpkin Seed Butter?

If you’re new to this ingredient, the name might conjure up jack-o-lanterns and pumpkin pie. Pumpkin seed butter is actually made from pepitas, and looks, feels, and tastes nothing like traditional pumpkin flavors or ingredients. Read on for more info on this innovative ingredient we’re adding to our real food roster. 

Is pumpkin seed butter the same as pumpkin butter?

Nope: pumpkin seed butter is not the same as pumpkin butter. Pumpkin butter is made from pumpkin puree blended with other ingredients and features a very distinct flavor profile. 

What does Pumpkin Seed Butter taste like?

Smooth, mild, and only a touch sweet, pumpkin seed butter blends into other formulas and recipes to create a creamy taste without distracting from the other flavors. 

What is pumpkin seed butter good for?

Pumpkin seed butter is good for adding creaminess to your favorite food items without dairy. Instead of butter, cream, or milk, we can use pumpkin seed butter to create that smooth, velvety texture you know and love.

What color is pumpkin seed butter?

Pumpkin seed butter is dark green–think of it as a color somewhere between peanut butter and homemade guacamole. This new hue will be unnoticeable in many of your favorite products. With Alfredo sauces and White Pizza Sauces, you might catch a glimpse of a greenish tinge. 


Why is pumpkin seed butter green?

Pumpkin seed butter is made from pepitas, which are small and green (about the size of a pine nut) and are only found in certain pumpkin and squash varieties. These blended pumpkin seeds result in butter that’s dark, earthy green.
