Pumpkin Pie Dip

Mmm... pumpkin pie-creamy, cool, sweat, unbelievable high in fat, calories and sugar (Wait! that wasn't suppose to be in my day dream about pumpkin pie!) Well-I guess that's one of the downfalls of being an obsessive health freak! Even the sweetest day dream of a sweat treat gets interrupted by the nutritional statistics and gets my mind brainstorming the ways I can have taste but not the guilt of my favorite indulgences, which is exactly how this recipe was born!

I knew I wanted something that could crush my craving for some pumpkin pie but was also a tad quicker to make, would give me at least some sort of nutrition and wouldn't cause a sugar crash or saturated fat slump I experience after an unhealthy snack... Hmmm....

A little bit of this, sprinkle and dollop of that later a star was born!

1 can pure pumpkin
1 cup yogurt (can use either plain or vanilla, Greek or regular-whatever you'd like!)
1/4 cup light whipped cream
1 TBSP vanilla extract
1 TBSP pumpkin pie spice (if you don't have this-add 1 tsp of : cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg)

I love enjoying this dip on apple slices!


1. Pretty straight forward...add all ingredients except whipped cream to a large bowl and mix well
2. Fold in whipped cream
3. Refrigerate (you can eat it right away, but the flavors will be more enhanced after a few hours)

Oh man... this dip + more whipped topping + pecan crackers = one happy (and healthy!) girl! :)
