Skinny Pumpkin Dip

This my last pumpkin recipe of the season… I swear. I just can’t help it. Pumpkin tastes so delicious, is good for you and is just perfect with warm spices for the autumn season. 🍁🍂🎃

I wanted to make a healthy pumpkin dip for Halloween so I mixed pumpkin puree with nonfat vanilla yogurt, some neufchatal cheese and spices. That’s pretty much it… super easy. As for the dippers I attempted to make apple chips but apparently they stick to wax paper when in the oven 😕 (I learned the hard way that parchment paper should be used instead). So after my sad attempt at apple chips I just cut up my remaining apples into slices and just used them as dippers. To prevent browning I soaked them for a few minutes in a solution containing 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 2 cups of water. The dip turned out super delish and everyone seemed to really enjoy it! This would be a great addition for Thanksgiving dinner in a few weeks!

      Oh no! So sorry about your baking sheet! Luckily my only casualty was a bunch of apples and some wax paper
