How to make a Pumpkin Spice Frozen Yogurt with a Healthy Twist

I love anything pumpkin spice, but I also love it when sweet treats manage to be a little bit healthy too.

Our family loves gelato in the summer time, and I wanted to create a delicious alternative that I could enjoy while still meeting my healthy eating goals.

The resulting pumpkin spice frozen yogurt recipe is low calorie, non-fat, lower in sugar than many deserts, and provides some fiber and protein in one delicious summer dessert!


Homemade Pumpkin Spice Frozen Yogurt

Makes 6 servings | 100 calories per serving

Ingredients

  • 2 cups vanilla non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup pureed pumpkin (I used canned)
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Directions

Whisk together all of the ingredients, then freeze in any ice cream maker, following the manufacturer’s instructions.

Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator.

I sprinkled it with a tiny bit of chocolate, but that’s totally optional. It would also be delicious with a little dollop of light whipped cream.

It’s actually that simple.

This recipe makes six approximately 1/2 cup servings which a recipe calculator estimates at 100 calories, 17 grams of carbs, 0 fat, 6 grams of protein, and 1 gram of fiber.


Eat Your Veggies for Dessert

If you love pumpkin spice, and you love healthy alternatives to summer treats, give this a try! With only a few ingredients, the pumpkin flavor really shines through. You can adjust the syrup and spices if you like things a bit sweeter.

If it’s a vegetable, dessert first becomes totally legitimate, right?
