Fall is the perfect season for a favorite flavor – pumpkin! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because our family travels from everywhere to come together and share a week playing together and preparing THE meal of the year. Our favorite dish? Undoubtedly, it’s the pumpkin pie! Pumpkin pie always brings up nostalgia for me, so I savor the flavor as much as I can throughout the fall season. However, eating pumpkin pie every day might wreak havoc on the scale! Here is a version I whipped up of Pumpkin Pie Cannoli that is awesome because 1) It’s delicious 2) No baking required and 3) It follows the rules of clean eating and 4) It’s a very filling (and nutritious!!) snack. Translation – easy deliciousness that’s easy on the waistline. 🙂
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, this recipe was created for 1, so you can eat the whole thing (without guilt! yay!)
To make this Pumpkin Spice Cannoli, you can easily put it in a bowl and whip it up real quick (that’s what I would call easy prep!), however, if you’d like a little smoother consistency, you can use your Ninja food processor (Amazon affiliate link). I use the smaller 2 cup processor and it will all fit (barely!).
Also, if you’re out of Pumpkin Pie Spice – here’s my pro tip: You can buy this spice at Aldi’s for half of the price you’ll see in the grocery store! You can also buy it on Amazon, but it’s much more pricier! If you’re in a pinch (pinch- spices…get it? ha!) here’s a homemade recipe I found that you can try: Pumpkin Spice Recipe – Oh She Glows.
