Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups pure pumpkin puree
  • 3 cups full fat plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½-1 cup granola

Instructions

  1. Blend the pumpkin, yogurt, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, and honey in a blender until smooth. 

  2. In a popsicle mold, add a pinch of granola to each mold. Fill each mold halfway with the pumpkin mixture and top with another pinch of granola. Fill each mold the almost to the top with the pumpkin mixture. Add popsicle sticks to your molds and top each one with enough granola to fill the popsicle molds. 

  3. Freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight.

  4. To remove the popsicles from the molds, run the bottom of the molds under very hot water for about 30 seconds. Pull firmly but slowly on the popsicle sticks to remove from the molds. Don't pull too hard to get them out or you will break them.

  5. Once the popsicles are out of the molds, store in plastic bags in the freezer and enjoy frozen whenever you wish. 

Recipe Notes

  • If you don't like full fat plain yogurt, any thick, creamy yogurt will work (like greek yogurt). If you use vanilla flavored yogurt, don't add the vanilla extract and the honey, as it will end up too sweet.
  • Make sure that you use pure pumpkin puree and NOT pumpkin pie filling. Homemade is best, but canned is a really wonderful option that we use most in our kitchen. Just read the label and make sure the only ingredient is pumpkin.
  • Make them vegan by substituting the yogurt for plant based plain yogurt of your choice or use coconut milk. Replace the honey with maple syrup.
  • Instead of honey you can use any sweetener you'd like. Maple syrup or white sugar would be great.
  • We like oats and honey granola, but any granola of your choice will work. Make sure your granola doesn't have raisins or other dried pieces of fruit or nuts, as those won't be pleasant to eat while frozen.
  • You can certainly make your own pumpkin pie spice, although there are great spice blends at the grocery store in the spice section. Here's a homemade pumpkin pie spice recipe to try.
