It's fall ya'll! Which means pumpkin everything....or at least pumpkin flavored (sorta) everything. There are now end units upon end units at the grocery store trying to capitalize on our obsession with all things pumpkin. I have to be honest, I was tempted to load up and taste test everything myself, but after sampling just a smidget of what was out there I came to a conclusion that it was not worth the calories since nothing seems to taste like actual pumpkin anymore. I knew that if I wanted to enjoy the season in full pumpkin effect, I would need to make it happen on my own. I searched pinterest for some pumpkin-greek yogurt collaborations and found some great recipes. I did however tweak a few to add more nutrition and less sugar (duh)! This is what I came up with and it is probably the best thing ever created in my kitchen....I promise. This dip is loaded with antioxidants from the pumpkin and very low in fat since I used 0% Greek yogurt. Pair this amazingness with some apple slices and it is a super food snack waiting to happen. Enjoy!
This recipe makes a ton of dip, so it can be seperated into 8 serving. You will need:
1 small can of 100% canned pumpkin
5.3 ounces of 0% Greek Yogurt, plain
1/4 cup of brown sugar (unpacked)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon all spice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 Tablespoons chocolate chips
Mix all together in large bowl.
