Healthy Dessert Recipes – Pumpkin Frozen “Yogurt”
Fall is pumpkin time – pumpkin seeds, pumpkin pie, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin flavored frozen yogurt….
Fall is also a time when our diets start to go to shambles because of all the delicious “once a year” treats that are around.
HOWEVER, there are ways to enjoy some of those seasonal foods, like pumpkin, without derailing your healthy eating progress.
Because pumpkin is actually good for you, which you probably wouldn’t think considering it is most often consumed in the form of pie or pumpkin spiced lattes. (It is actually especially great for smoothies or treats on carb refeed days!)
So I decided to create a HEALTHY Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt using my awesome Yonanas which I’m mildly obsessed with.
Pumpkin Banana Frozen “Yogurt”
1/4-1/2 cup Frozen Organic Pumpkin (depending on how much you like pumpkin flavor…)
2 frozen medium bananas
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Sprinkle of nutmeg
Remove the frozen ingredients and let them thaw just a bit. Sprinkle bananas with spices.
Turn on the Yonanas and place a quarter of banana in the Yonanas followed by a piece of frozen pumpkin. Mash down. Keep alternating banana and pumpkin until all of the ingredients above have been combined in the Yonanas.
Give it one stir and enjoy! (You can also sprinkle a bit more cinnamon and nutmeg on top if you like!)
What are your favorite healthy fall treats?
