Dietitian's Tip: 

Pumpkin is a great source of Vitamin A which keeps your eyes healthy and acts as an antioxidant. The yogurt adds an extra punch of calcium too. You can also serve this as a dip with apple slices or as a smoothie by thinning it out with a little fat free milk.

Ingredients: 

2 cups low fat plain yogurt
½ cup pumpkin puree
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
¼ cup walnuts, chopped
Honey or other sweetener, drizzle (optional)

Preparation: 

In a medium sized bowl thoroughly mix the pumpkin puree with the spices.
Add the yogurt to the bowl and mix well.
Place in serving dishes and sprinkle with walnuts and a drizzle of honey or other sweetener.
