My roommate thinks I have a pumpkin obsession. Every time I come back from Target, I have a new can of pumpkin. I’ve made pumpkin cookies, pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin spice creamer, and now pumpkin pie dip!
Last night, the ladies of Aspen Residence Hall had a ‘Girl’s Night In’ complete with chick flicks, nail polish, games, music, pajamas and snacks. Even though it was after dinner, I wanted to bring something healthy and light instead of dessert. So I made a Pumpkin Whip Dip with fruit dippers and it was a hit!
Pumpkin Whip Dip
1 1/4 Cups Tbs Lite Cool Whip (half of a container)
½ Can of Pumpkin
1 (6 oz.) Non-fat Plain Greek Yogurt
1 heaping Tbs cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp All-spice
Cut whatever fruit slices you like (I used Gala apples and De Ajou pears) into long strips for dipping. You could also use graham crackers or ginger snaps for an extra sweet treat ;)
It was the perfect balance next to the cookies and cupcakes!
After some ultra competitive but hilarious games, the feature presentation was What a Girl Wants. And naturally, we painted our nails Glow in the Dark…..
By keeping away from the dessert table and sticking to a healthy snack, I felt great at this morning’s workout! I hit the gym with a fellow cross country teammate to feel the burn with some weight training. Let the fun of a Girl’s Night be in the company you are with, not the junk food you mindlessly eat.
