Failure in the Freezer

It's only mid-September and pumpkin flavored pastries are already *popping* up everywhere. I was planning to make PUMPKIN POPS for Thanksgiving, but I just couldn't wait! And I'm glad I didn't. This recipe needs some serious tweaking. I combined:

1 can unsweetened pumpkin puree
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbs ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tbs orange peel
1 tbs raw honey

The pops are decent. They're edible. But I'm disappointed. Next time I'll add yogurt for a creamier consistency. The clove flavor is quite strong and overpowers the pop and think I may eliminate cloves all together in the next batch. I'll try again and update ya'll on my pumpkin pop progress.
