Oh my goodness! A recipe that isn’t hummus! I can hardly believe it!
This last Month of Hummus has been super fun, but I have to admit to being ready to eat and blog some other delicious things around here. And what a perfect way to start but with a taste of fall — Pumpkin Pie Popsicles!
I got a text from my lovely friend Nicole, asking if we could make Pumpkin Pie Popsicles. Of course, my answer was an enthusiastic “YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!”, and we made them on our very next date!
We used pureed 100% pumpkin here from a tin that I had on hand for pumpkin emergencies, but you could also use pumpkin or any winter squash that you’ve roasted and pureed (and if you need to learn how to roast a pumpkin or a squash, I have a whole blog post on it here).
I think this would also be awesome with my Chai Spice Blend; if you have it on hand you can use a teaspoon of it instead of the cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice below.
Pumpkin Pie Popsicles
Adapted from A Healthy Jalapeno’s Pumpkin Pie Popsicles, makes 6 popsicles
- 1 c. (250 ml/8oz) almond milk
- 1/2 c. (113g/4 oz) pureed pumpkin
- 3 Tbsp. maple syrup
- 1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp. ground allspice
- 1 pinch sea salt
Place all ingredients in blender, and blitz until well combined. Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary, remembering that once frozen the popsicles will be a little less sweet.
Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for at least two hours, until completely frozen.
When you’re ready to eat, take out a popsicle from its mold, and enjoy the taste of fall!
