Pumpkin Pie Popsicles

Pin It
Pumpkin! Pumpkin! Pumpkin!

It's finally that time of year where all the most amazing fall pumpkin and apple recipes come out of the wood-works. I have been drooling over all the amazing recipes that have been coming out from bloggy friends and I can't keep up with how many I wanted to make but luckily these made the cut!
 So I started to make these the other night and go figure I pull them out today to  test, taste and take my pic's and it just so happens to be the muggiest warmest day in a while... perfect for my fall pumpkin pie popsicles.


me = soooo happy!
The idea of these is so wonderful because who is to say that you have to wait till fall to enjoy the wonderful taste of pumpkin pie... you don't. Mix these puppies up (in like seconds), freeze, and before you know it you can be having your favorite pie in the middle of the summer.


Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays because it's simply a day of Thanks with friends, families and amazing food. Now I don't think we should all deprive ourselves in waiting all year long for this fabulous holiday just to bite into our favorite treat, instead were bringing the taste of pumpkin to an all year long treat.
Paul definitely snuck a popsicle the night I made them, to which I didn't know if they had even enough time to completely freeze but of course that didn't stop him.

I was waiting until Saturday because it's finally the weekend and with the weather and no plans today besides QT with my pups, I was absolutely going to be relaxing and enjoying my pumpkin pie.


It was fabulous. Creamy and 'dense' tasting just like that sliver of pie on Thanksgiving. Just as Marla mentioned in her Happy Pumpkin post, my almond milk rose to the top as the pop froze but every bite was rich and delicious.
Even though we are fully diving into fall with it's wonderful crisp air, the leaves changing and long sleeves, test these simple and healthy popsicle treats this weekend. Your family and friends will not only be impressed but they will be smiling ear to ear.


I mean come on, it's Pumpkin Pie... in a popsicle.
What could be better?
