Ever since I got a Kitchen Aid Ice Cream Maker attachment for my mixer, I have been salivating over delicious ice cream recipes that I want to try. But none of them are Weight Watchers friendly, so they always end up on the back burner. But when I was trying to decide what to do with some extra pumpkin puree I had in the fridge, I decided to take a stab at making some Pumpkin Pie Frozen Yogurt. This low calorie dessert literally took me minutes to make. And then my ice cream maker did the rest. It was so flavorful and creamy…and my kids loved it! Each 1/2 cup serving is just 2 Points +, and it’s a really healthier alternative to most frozen yogurts that you’d buy pre-made. After you eat all those Thanksgiving dinner calories, you can enjoy a guilt free dessert :). This year, I think I’m going to make this to put on top of my Apple Pie, instead of using the traditional vanilla ice cream. Yum! It’s like combining the best of the two most popular Thanksgiving desserts into one. Enjoy!
Pumpkin Pie Frozen Yogurt
What a perfect Weight Watchers Thanksgiving dessert recipe idea! This easy pumpkin frozen yogurt is healthy and delicious and makes a great end to any fall meal.
- 1 cup vanilla, nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1 cup pure pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup fat free milk
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
- If you are using an ice cream maker, churn it with that for a few minutes until everything is cold and creamy, and becomes an ice cream like consistency.
- If you don’t have an ice cream maker, just put the bowl in the freezer, and stir the mixture every 20-30 minutes until you get the correct consistency.
