We couldn’t resist bringing you something seasonal in honor of Halloween, and in time for the pumpkin-themed season ahead!
Here’s a delicious and natural way to enjoy the flavor of the season. Instead of lots of cream and sugar, this frozen treat is made with just 4 ingredients — pumpkin, Greek yogurt, honey, and pumpkin pie spice. While it still has the slightly sour flavor of yogurt, it’s quite delicious and a great alternative to a lot of the sweets that start to creep in around this time of year.
We enjoyed the yogurt with a soft serve type texture right out of the ice cream maker. Enjoy!Print
- 2 cups 2% Greek yogurt
- 1 15 ounce can pumpkin
- ⅓ cup honey
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Taste, and add a bit more honey if you’d like a sweeter taste.
- Freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. You can eat the ice cream right away for a soft serve texture, or freeze it for about 2 hours for a harder texture. (Note that the yogurt is best eaten after a few hours of freezing; freezing overnight is not recommended, as we found that it compromises the texture and flavor.)
