Pumpkin Pie Frozen Yogurt

It's pumpkin season, which means you'll find pumpkins piled high in the produce section of the supermarket, and in all kinds of recipes, from soups to dessert. With winter fast approaching, ice-cream may be the last thing on some peoples minds. But, I'm spending the winter months in Florida, where the temps are still in the 80's, so ice-cream is something my family is still thinking about. Pumpkin pie frozen yogurt to be exact.



I'm a huge fan of Greek yogurt. The thicker consistency it has over regular yogurt, and the slight tang it offers draws me in, and leaves me craving more. While I'm lactose intolerant, Greek yogurt doesn't seem to bother me the way regular dairy products, such as milk and cheese do. So I add some everyday in my morning smoothie, to enjoy the 22 grams of protein per serving it contains, as well as the three types of probiotics it provides. I even use it as a substitute for sour cream and mayonnaise.


Pumpkin pie frozen yogurt couldn't be easier to make. All you need are 3 ingredients, plus spices, and you are on your way to an amazing frozen treat. It's full of pumpkin pie flavor, but with less fat and calories than it's ice cream counterpart. I made this recipe as part of the #madewithChobani project. It's honestly the only Greek yogurt I use. It's made with all natural ingredients, non-GMO, and the milk they use has no rBST (bovine growth hormone). So you can feel good about serving it to your family.

Pumpkin Pie Frozen Yogurt

Ingredients

2 cups Chobani plain non-fat Greek yogurt
1 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup organic cane sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves

Directions

Place all the ingredients in a food processor, or blender, and process until thoroughly blended. (Taste and add more sugar if desired)
Pour mixture into a freezer safe container and cover.
Place in freezer and freeze for 4 hours, removing and stirring the mixture every 30 minutes, until it reaches an ice cream consistency.

Makes about 6 servings.

Notes: *Please remember that this is frozen "yogurt", not ice cream. It won't be as smooth as regular ice cream, and will have a few ice crystals. It is still creamy and delicious though.

*Greek yogurt has a tart flavor, so I don't recommend using less sugar in this recipe. Unless you like tangy frozen yogurt. :) However, you can add a bit more sugar, if you would like it to be sweeter.

Have you used Greek yogurt in any of your recipes? I’d love to hear about it!


*Chobani was kind enough to send me several coupons for their plain Greek yogurt, which were used in the making of this recipe. However, all opinions are my own.

I was wanting a recipe for frozen yogurt instead, a little more protein for my vegetarian daughter, and this is perfect!!!! No one in my family will eat pumpkin, just me , but I bet I could puree apples or blueberries instead. This is perfect for us, thanks so much for sharing!!! Pinning!
