An Autumn Twist On A Summer Classic

There are no rules that say you can only eat frozen yogurt in the summer. With the addition of pumpkin, it takes it to the next season!

Frozen yogurt is the perfect sweet treat no matter what time of the year. This version is lightly-flavored with fresh (or canned) pumpkin puree and Greek yogurt. If you don't have an ice cream maker don't worry! You can add the ingredients to a bag, put it in the freezer and give it a good stir (or smoosh around in the bag) every half hour until you reach the desired consistency. Healthy, easy, delicious and the perfect light ending to your Thanksgiving meal.

Is there any way to get rid of the yogurt's sour taste? I added twice the amt. of sugar & you could taste it. Otherwise it was good.
