During the Fall, everyone is enjoying pumpkin pies, coffees, doughnuts, and basically everything pumpkin flavored. I wanted to whip up an easy snack that everyone could enjoy even if you are sugar free, gluten free, or on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.
This Easy Cinnamon Pumpkin Dip is the perfect snack that you can easily whip up and serve at your holiday parties.
- 15 ounce can of Pumpkin
- 4 Tablespoons of Honey
- 1 & 1/2 cup of Yogurt
- 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 Teaspoon of Ginger
- 1 Teaspoon of Nutmeg
Add Pumpkin to bowl and mix in honey, spices, and vanilla extract. Once all of the spices and extract are combined, add the yogurt in and stir until everything is mixed together.
Refrigerate until the dip is cold, this will vary depending on how cold you would like your dip. I refrigerated mine for about an hour before serving with apple slices.
Not only is this snack free of gluten, sugar, and preservatives, but it allows you to have a tasty way to add some probiotics into your diet. I try to add yogurt into at least one meal or snack a day, this is my new favorite go to recipe and I will be serving this at my holiday gatherings this year.
I love to make dips like these for everyone in my family and when they ask for the recipe, they are always surprised when I tell them that there is no sugar or gluten. Some people hear gluten free and immediately think that there is no flavor but the truth is that ever since I have been eating this way, I have been enjoying the best foods I have ever had in my entire life.
If you are like me and love peanut butter, try mixing in a cup of creamy peanut butter into this cinnamon pumpkin dip, you will be glad you did!
