Whip It Up

I’m guest blogging today over on Australia-based WhipUp. Come check out one of my autumnal standbys-the great pumpkin face mask!

    This might be a really stupid question.. but how do you make pumpkin puree.. Doesn't it lose its properties if its cooked?

  • Nandini-I usually just use canned pumpkin for the mask. It's much easier. That said, fresh, steamed, pureed pumpkin would work just as well. As for loss of nutrients, it's minimally processed to get it into pureed form, so I think the nutrients would still be intact.
