Take 4 ingredients - an autumn twist on a summer classic

 
Halloween´s coming and the Portuguese pumpkins are getting plump.This recipe is all over the worldwide web and has pinterested itself all over Portugal, but I have to say I am going to flag it up again because its a classic.There are no rules that say you can only eat frozen yogurt in the summer. With the addition of pumpkin, it comfortably transports to the next season.Frozen yogurt is the perfect sweet trick and treat no matter what time of the year. This version is lightly-flavoured with fresh pumpkin puree and Greek yogurt. If you don't have an ice cream maker don't worry,you can put all the ingredients in a freezable container, put it in the freezer and give it a good stir and smoosh it around every half hour until you reach the desired consistency. Healthy, easy, and if you are American or someone who celebrates Thanksgiving, a delicious and perfect light finale to your Thanksgiving dinner.

Homemade Pumpkin Frozen Yogurt

1 cup greek yogurt, strained

1 cup pumpkin puree
1 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix everything together in a large mixing bowl until completely combined. Churn the mixture in an ice cream maker for a few minutes until it is a smooth, cool consistency. Alternatively, place the bowl in the freezer and stir mixture every half hour until it reaches desired consistency.
