Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt

Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt

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!

Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1 15 ounce can pumpkin
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Instructions

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Taste, and add a bit more honey if you’d like a sweeter taste.
  2. 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.)

    This looks fantastic – I’m always impressed at the texture and flavor of homemade frozen yogurt made using Greek yogurt. I, too, like it right out of the ice cream machine – super creamy. This is a perfect “fall” dessert for us here in the tropics!

    This looks so good! I only have 0% Fage Greek yogurt at home right now. Do you think that would work too?

      Hi Maria! Our spice mix says cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves. I think any combination of those would be delicious (I would for sure use cinnamon, ginger and either nutmeg, cloves or allspice — or you can do all if you have them!).

    For those on a diet or have to watch their sugar I bet agave would taste as good as honey. That’s what I’m going to try.

    Would soy yogurt work in this recipe for a dairy free version? Love pumpkin!

      We’ve never tried it, so I’m not sure. Sorry!
