Today has been ‘one of those days.’ You know the kind where you feel like jumping right back into bed, pulling the covers over your eyes, & turning all electronics off? Yah. I’m definitely dragging my feet. Totally wasn’t a smooth sailin’-kinda Wednesday.

So!

Since it’s hot as balls outside, I made froyo [ created by my blogger friend, Mara ]. Because there’s nothing better than pumpkin frozen yogurt to cure a shitty, humid day.

Oh, & P.S. working out also helped me feel better. Whenever you feel sad/mad/depressed/angry/annoyed/frustrated/pissed/gross- go workout. Exercise increases endorphins, which can eliminate a bad mood instantly. Along with this pumpkin froyo, Pilates also helped pull me out of my funk today {!!!).

XO.

+ Vegan Pumpkin Froyo

[ Recipe adapted from Cheap & Simple Vegan Recipes ]

1 cup cooked pumpkin puree

1 cup plain soy yogurt

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

A pinch of ginger

A dash of pumpkin pie spice

1/2 teaspoon liquid vanilla stevia [ or you could try a different sweetener–liquid stevia is very concentrated sweet, so if you’re using something else, adjust amount to your taste preferences ]. I used Pyure sweetener.

+ Directions: Blend everything in a bowl & whip until well combined. Put in the freezer for about 20 minutes; take it out & stir well. Put back in the freezer for another 15-30 minutes, checking periodically and stirring. You want it well-chilled but not frozen, otherwise it will be icy and crunchy, not smooth and creamy. Serve immediately.

    Ugh, I’ve been in SUCH a funk lately. Thanks so much for this nice reminder to get my bum into the gym. This froyo looks amazeballs and it’s so easy to make – I can’t wait to whip it up tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe!

    Thanks for sharing this! Only thing is it would be difficult to find pumpkin puree here.. Could i use something else? :)
    And another question (don’t want to make things too easy for you 😉 ), is there a huge difference with using dairy and soy products? Is soy yoghurt that much healthier? :)

    Thanks! :)

      Either yogurt works! And pumpkin puree is at most stores in the baking section ; ). Libby’s is my favie!

    Mmm … I made a pumpkin “ice cream” today myself my blending a frozen banana with some pure pumpkin, vanilla almond milk, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla protein powder, and the tiniest pinch of brown sugar … also really good! And this morning I made your 2-ingredient pancakes (followed your recipe adding in a little protein powder) and they were awesome! Didn’t need any syrup or honey or anything because the banana was sweet enough. :)

    Yum! That looks so refreshing! Lately, my go-to breakfast has been my rendition of “pumpkin pie.” I take 1/2 cup of canned pumpkin, 1/4 cup of egg whites, some sweetner, and pumpkin pie spice. Mix it all up in a mug, and pop it into the micro for a couple minutes. It’s delicious, filling, and tastes like the inside of a pumpkin pie!
