It’s that time of year again, the leaves are changing colour and pumpkin is making an appearance everywhere. I can’t help but jump on the pumpkin bandwagon every Fall. But I’m not talking about pumpkin flavoured products, I’m taking about 100% pure pumpkin. It’s one of my favourite Fall flavours and it is so versatile, especially if you keep cans of pumpkin purée in your cupboard. I love adding it into my morning oatmeal, or mixed into macaroni and cheese to add vegetables and a wonderful orange hue. But, you can’t beat the flavour that pumpkin brings to baked goods.
My sister-in-law over at Maman Loup’s Den gave me my Christmas present a little early this year – a Zoku Quick Pop Maker! My present came with one condition; I had to come up with a recipe so that she could review the product. We both have a mutual love of all things pumpkin spiced so I decided to make a healthy popsicle using greek yogurt, pure pumpkin puree, and crushed gingersnaps for a little crunch.
I am very fortunate to have a close extended family that gets together every few weeks for family dinner. I usually bring dessert, one because I love to bake, and two I get to test out new recipes without having tons of leftovers tempting us at home. I’m sure my family doesn’t mind being guinea pigs!
