It’s a beautiful fall morning in the mountains! It’s hard to believe that fall temperatures have already arrived. It’s a cool 43 degrees this morning. While taking my usual morning walk, I was amazed to see so many fallen leaves on the ground. It’s a little early, but it truly feels like fall in Kentucky! I love everything about fall. I love the temperatures, the beautiful foliage, the holidays, and recipes with pumpkin!
I have had many ups, and some downs since I started the wonderful journey of clean eating my way to a better quality of life. Some of the ups include the joy that I have found experimenting and modifying my favorite recipes to qualify as clean recipes. With the success of each recipe, I have been able to expand my food choices, menu, and my pantry! However, one of the hardest modifications for me is modifying snacks that remain both tasty, and satisfying. But, with trial and error…eventually comes success.
Once again, I was inspired to experiment with pumpkin puree and Greek yogurt to create a clean and delicious pumpkin fruit dip. I have found fruit to be a very satisfying and filling snack, and with fruit dip, an even more satisfying treat. Finding snacks that are clean, healthy, and tasty also helps reduce the desire and craving for many of the unhealthy snack that I once indulged in. This pumpkin Almond Fruit Dip, is a winner, and totally satisfying! If you love pumpkin as much as I do, I am anxious for you to try this clean and tasty Pumpkin Almond Fruit Dip.
