Pumpkin bread pudding: The bakery and lounge recently added a bread pudding made with pumpkin. It’s a milder sweetness of the pumpkin mixes well with the crumbs and cream. $9. Find it: Creme Cupcake, 543 28th St.

Pumpkin pie smoothie: A smoothie made with pumpkin, and frozen yogurt, or banana if you want something a little lighter. You can also add oatmeal for extra fiber. $4.50. Find it: The Juice Company, 845 42nd St.
