1 cup vanilla greek yogurt
(or plain, but vanilla is sweeter)
2-3 heaping spoonfuls of pumpkin (from the can!)
3-5 shakes of pumpkin pie spice
1 shake of cinnamon (i like extra!)
1 tsp. of brown sugar
1. Start of with your greek yogurt in a bowl, depending on how much greek yogurt you use, adjust the rest of the recipe. If you use plain greek yogurt, it will be more bitter and may need some vanilla extract!
2. Add pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and brown sugar, still and sample. Add a little bit more of "this or that" depending on what it needs
3. Enjoy by the spoonful, scoop up with gluten free graham crackers, slather on apple slices
- This is more of an idea for everyone to turn INTO a recipe, based on their own taste preferences. I like things sweet, so in reality, I actually add more brown sugar than 1 tsp....
- PUMP IT UP WITH PROTEIN - add in vanilla protein powder and remove the brown sugar for extra protein and a sweet flavor. Isopure Creamy Vanilla works wonders with this!
- Serve as a parfait in between layers of graham cracker crumbles
- If you're patient, freeze for 30-45 minutes so it can firm up and become a frozen yogurt!
Peanut Butter Pumpkin Mousse
1/4 cup pumpkin
2-4 tbsp. PB2 - depends how much flavor you want
(using regular peanut butter will NOT turn this into a mouse, it will be delicious none the less, but not a mousse like texture)
3 shakes of pumpkin pie spice
1 shake of extra cinnamon
1. Combine pumpkin, PB2, and spices together
2. Whip together with a spoon or fork and watch the PB2 transform the pumpkin into a mousse consistency
3. Eat plain, with a spoon, because it's just that good!
- This recipe is great when you've got a small amount of pumpkin left over that simply can't be put to waste!
- Again, those are loose measurements, use whatever amount your taste buds fancy!
- I have not made this with regular peanut butter, but I can imagine the consistency created would not be the same as mine, it would be MUCH thicker and not mix in as well
- PB2 can be found at Walmart, most health food stores OR ordered online at amazon, iherb, vitacost, etc.
