Creamy Pumpkin Pie Popsicles

While the calendar may say it is fall, it’s certainly not feeling like it here in Florida. And despite my attempts to make it feel like fall inside our home by burning apple and pumpkin scented candles, it has been in the 90’s this week and it has been pretty yucky and humid! What’s up with that, yo?!! As I was driving home from work this week, I got this idea to make these amazing creamy pumpkin popsicles. I drove straight to the store to get the ingredients. Back in August, I saw this recipe for oreo popsicles from Kita at Pass the Sushi. I bookmarked her recipe because it sounded so simple and looked so delicious! I used her base of cream cheese and Cool Whip for these pumpkin popsicles and they turned out SO good!! (By the way, Kita, I also made your PB Oreo version, they were amazing!).

The best part about these popsicles is that they are really low in fat and really low in sugar! I used fat-free cream cheese and sugar-free Cool Whip. These pops were the perfect fall treat for these never-ending warm days!

Creamy Pumpkin Pie Popsicles

Ingredients:

– 1 8-ounce package fat-free cream cheese

– 1 container sugar-free Cool Whip, thawed

– 3/4-1 cup canned pumpkin (depends on how much pumpkin flavor you want!)

– 1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

– graham cracker crumbs (optional)

Directions:

1. In a bowl, whip the cream cheese until it is light and fluffy. Add in the pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice and mix until well-combined. Fold in Cool Whip. Pour mixture into molds and sprinkle some graham cracker crumbs on the bottom. Freeze overnight.

Notes:
– Note that I didn’t indicate a serving size for this recipe. How many popsicles this makes will depend on your popsicle molds. Mine are pretty big so I only got 5 out of this. But, if you use smaller molds or dixie cups, you will get more!
– I did not add sugar or artifical sweeteners to this because I felt they were already sweet enough for my tastes, but you can certainly add some if you would prefer!
– While I really loved the graham cracker crumbs with these, I found that most of the crumbs just fell right off when I removed them from the molds and it made quite a mess. Not sure if I would use them again. If anybody has better suggestions to make them stick better, please let me know! :)

  1. Ohh those look and sound great. It’s still hot here too so I’ve been thinking of doing a fall-type popsicle. I’m sure the kids would love this one!

  2. Delicious! I live in Florida too….and the change in weather is so subtle that I judge the season by the card department in the stores!

  3. MMmmmmm….I love pumpkin!!! And these popsicles look so amazing and creamy!

  4. These sound freakin awesome! I used low far cream cheese and qhipped cream too – took some of the guilt off ;) Thanks for the shout out.

    • Thanks, Kita! My mind has been reeling with all of the different types of popsicles you could make with this cream cheese and whipped cream base!

  5. What a novel idea – love it! It sure doesn’t feel like fall here in Houston either!

  6. These popsicles look absolutely delightful. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Amen to craving some cooler weather. Us Floridians really need crisp air. I am over the heat!

  8. This is perfect for the calendar saying fall and it still being in the 80’s here in Texas. These frosty treats look delicious. Yum!

  9. Mmmm I’m LOVING all these pumpkin recipes, I especially love these!! How creative! :)

  10. OMG – love these!!! Really obsessed with anything pumpkin but what a cute idea!!! Totally stealing this one :) ;)

  11. Oh! How cool is this idea! No pun intended lol. I love pumpkin pie ice cream so this would be right up my alley. As for the crumbs, could you possibly mix them in rather than use them on the outside?

    • I thought about mixing the crumbs right in, but then I thought it might just turn out grainy and not really have that “crusty” feel. I’m thinking maybe try to find a way to swirl the crumbs in so they aren’t just fully mixed in. Either that or I might try crushing my own next time so I can leave them in bigger chunks instead of a fine crumb! Either way, they were so tasty! :)

  12. Yummy and refreshing, just what us Florida peeps need. Gotta try these!!!

  13. Those are so fun–I love that you’ve even got the crust in there!
