Pumpkin Pie Yogurt



I love pumpkin pie, especially at this time of year; it is the quintessential fall dessert. By blending two of my favorite foods together, I was able to create this healthy pumpkin pie alternative that is high in vitamin A and calcium and works great as a meal or a dessert…

This is my new favorite breakfast (and on occasion, 4:00 snack too): pumpkin pie yogurt with a granola bar and a piping-hot cup of black tea.

This is so easy to make – just combine equal parts of plain greek yogurt and organic pumpkin pie mix and serve with a granola bar for dipping. I use the pumpkin pie mix because it is already seasoned with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, allspice and evaporated cane juice – it is pumpkin pie in a can.

This makes a great after-school snack for the kids too.

    Where do you buy the pumpkin pie mix? I’m in Evanston too!

      Hi Jen! I picked it up at Dominick’s – in the baking supply aisle.

    Love this combination of flavors in my morning yogurt/oatmeal mix. Roughly the same as your recipe, but with some milk and oatmeal and flax seeds added, shaken up in a mason jar, and left overnight in the fridge for tomorrow’s breakfast.

      That sounds fantastic! Do you use steel cut oats for that?

    Wow, that sounds fantastic! I have some leftover pumpkin puree, so I might have to spice and sweeten it up and then mix it with my yogurt. :)
