Happy Almost November Bella Diva
I had to create at least one new pumpkin recipe this year. This one is light dessert for a fun evening with friends or maybe make it a small batch and keep it in the fridge for a treat each day for yourself.
This light and fluffy dessert dip can most definitely satisfy your sweet tooth for a low-calorie and low sugar option. Besides, its pumpkin!!!
Just keep saying to yourself, its ok to indulge in this dessert..it is pumpkin and pumpkin is a veggie and full fiber! Ha. Just remember..portion control is KEY!
Just FYI, I was told this box of pumpkin puree…YES Box, that I found at Sur la Tab is the best pumpkin I would ever taste. Um…YES it IS. OMG!!!!!! You must try it while it’s around for the holidays!!!!
