Pumpkin Yogurt Dip

Pumpkin Yogurt Dip

Someone should just go ahead and take the canned pumpkin puree away from me.  I can’t stop.  I get an idea and then I can’t get it out of my brain.  This pumpkin yogurt dip is came about that way.

Have I mentioned yet how easy it is?  Well, let me explain: one bowl, one can of pumpkin, one container of yogurt, a little pumpkin pie spice and some cinnamon chips.  Stir, stir, stir, done.  See?

Oh yes, there are cinnamon chips in there.  Cinnamon chips.  These little babies have become my new favorite treat in the baking isle.  And they fit right in with this whole fall food thing we have going on.  I had to start a Pinterest board – sorry, except not.  I mean, I couldn’t help it – all of my foodie friends are sharing such amazing fall-inspired treats that I just needed one place to find them all.

I originally meant to serve this pumpkin yogurt dip with graham crackers and sliced apples but then I just kept taking tastes from the spoon.  I think it would also be fabulous added to a graham cracker crust, refrigerated and then served with whipped cream.  Oh yes.

Pumpkin Yogurt Dip Recipe

Yield: 3 cups of dip

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Pumpkin yogurt dip: a simple seasonal dessert dip with brown sugar, pumpkin pie spices, yogurt and cinnamon chips.

Ingredients:

1 can pumpkin puree
6 ounces fat-free vanilla yogurt (I used StonyField Organic)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cinnamon chips
1 tsp. ginger
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp. cloves
Small pinch of salt

Directions:

Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl and stir until well combined.

Serve with graham crackers and fruit.

Cassie’s Notes:
Pumpkin pie spice is made of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves. If you have pumpkin pie spice on hand, feel free to substitute 2-3 teaspoons of it rather than adding each individual spice.

    Pumpkin and yogurt is always great. I make a dip sort of like this one but it’s far less healthy. It uses cool whip in place of the yogurt. But gosh, it’s good :)

    Genius, Cassie! This just looks amazing, and I love your idea to turn it into a pie even more :)

    Why did you make this so easy?! No It’s all I can think of. And I still have some homemade puree just waiting to be used!

      I think I remember seeing a post about homemade cinnamon chips recently. Even better to go along with October unprocessed!

    I made pumpkin dip recently but definitely didn’t add cinnamon chips. Boo! This looks great. Yours seems even healthier than mine. :)

    • Cassie replied: — October 3rd, 2012 @ 2:09 pm

      Your stuff is usually waaaay healthier than mine!!

      You just made my day, Kathryn! Thank you for your sweet comments!

    Maybe my sweets are a little but you more than make up for it by making healthy non-sweets! What do I eat as real food? Pizza, fried chicken and lasagna. Not so healthy. :) In my dip, I used lots of white chocolate to sweeten it. I’m a white chocolate + pumpkin maniac!

    • Cassie replied: — October 3rd, 2012 @ 2:17 pm

      Yes! White chocolate + pumpkin = amazing (aka – deathly) combo!

    I’ve never had cinnamon chips, but I am definitely going to search them out. This looks yummo!

    Eating this right now for breakfast, so delicious!!! The kids are grubbing on it too. I sprayed a little cooking spray in flour tortillas, sprinkled with cinnamon/sugar,baked for 10 minutes @ 350, and am scooping up the dip with it. Thanks for the recipe!!
