Pumpkin Pie Yogurt

I think by now you know how much I love fall!  I can’t get enough of being outside this time of year, running through the falls leaves, hiking in the perfect crisp weather, not to mention all of the festive parties and holidays!

Last weekend the hubs and I went to Boulder for an early morning hike when we came across this really cute old fashioned restaurant that neither of us knew existed.  We love being spontaneous so we shared breakfast and a bloody Mary on the deck and watched the deer come down from the hills. Then we grilled and made the most of the sun being out on a Fall day. By the way, if you don’t have a smoker, you need one. Yep, it was all really that cool.
The breakfast was perfect and full of comfort foods, one of which was a yummy little pumpkin yogurt recipe…so, being the blogger I am I had to recreate it and add my own twist…and being the generous blogger I am I had to share it with you.

Pumpkin Pie Yogurt

You’re going to love this recipe, it’s packed with protein and you’ll have it whipped up in no time. Also, using one of the best smoothie blenders will help speed up the yogurt making process!
What you need:
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 8 ounces plain Greek yogurt (you can use vanilla for a sweeter flavor but it has more sugar and less protein than plain Greek yogurt)
  • 1tbs raw nuts and dried cranberries (optional)
  • Drizzle of maple syrup
What you do:
  • Stir the pumpkin puree and the pumpkin pie spice into the yogurt.
  • Sprinkle with nuts and cranberries.
  • Add a drizzle of maple syrup.
This yogurt recipe is naturally sweet and adds raw nuts for extra crunch and protein.
