Happy Halloween! I haven’t figured out my trick for today yet, but I’m already covered on the treat part! Earlier today I made this delicious Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt.

I found the recipe in the most random of ways – no Pinterest, no blogs. Instead, I tore it from the page of a magazine I found on a train ride I took to San Diego a few weeks ago. And I have no idea what magazine! (It was a newspaper insert, similar to Parade).

I set it aside to make after we finished with the craziness of moving. And today is the perfect day to make it!

The recipe is simple, and most of the ingredients I have on hand at all times (other than whole milk – but I think nonfat will work just fine).

Does anyone remember two years ago when there was an alleged pumpkin shortage (here & here)?? My roommate and I stocked up on Libby’s to make sure our supply held through the year (she had a seriously delicious pumpkin cookie recipe that was often requested). Seems like that won’t be a problem this year, though.

I am a huge fan of this frozen yogurt! It tastes just like pumpkin pie, but with a tangy kick from the Greek yogurt. I added a sprinkling of ground cloves into the mixture, but I do think there’s a touch too much cinnamon. You know that back of the throat dryness that comes with eating cinnamon? It’s barely there in this recipe. Not enough to make me stop eating it, but I would cut it down a third next time around.

After running the pumpkin yogurt mixture through the ice cream maker, it was still a bit soft. So, I stuck in it the freezer for a few hours and now it’s perfect.

I think it would be fun to turn this into Pumpkin Pie Frozen Yogurt, just by adding some crumbled pie crust to the mix. I’m so excited to try making more frozen yogurt – both plain (to add berries to!) and flavored.

 

Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt

1 1/2 cups Greek lowfat yogurt

1 1/2 cups whole milk

1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar

2 cups puréed pumpkin

3/4 teaspoon cinnamon (I’d recommend trying 1/2 teaspoon, first)

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

 

Whisk all ingredients in a bowl until combined. Place in container of ice cream freezer and churn for 30 minutes. Store in plastic container in freezer.
