This delicious pumpkin spice yogurt recipe makes a perfect, autumn-inspired snack!
I haven’t had dairy in a really long time, but my little guy is another story. He loves flavored yogurts at the moment, but I hate the ingredients found in most store-bought flavored yogurts.
So I started making them at home. Over the summer, he preferred a mixed berry flavor. But it’s that time of year when he is seeing pumpkin pie in the stores, so he is much more interested in pumpkin pie flavors.
I couldn’t find a single one that wasn’t loaded with processed sugar in the grocery store. Not one.
But then a friend and one of my fabulous readers came to my rescue and suggested this recipe for a homemade version. (Thank you, Erica!!) I snuck a taste to get an idea of the flavor and, oh my! It’s pumpkin pie!
This is an easy recipe you can pack for school or work lunches, enjoy at home, or even serve as dessert at a party. It’s a yummy treat! It would even be amazing as a pumpkin pie-inspired breakfast with some cinnamon granola for a pumpkin pie parfait. And all of it is made with natural ingredients that give you natural flavors. No garbage, chemicals, or artificial flavors.
Turning Pumpkin Pie Yogurt Into A Pumpkin Pie Smoothie
This can easily be made into smoothies with the addition of some milk. You may need to adjust the spices and sweetener, but it works well.
Can This Be Made Vegan Or Dairy-Free?
Yes, it can! Simply use maple syrup for the sweetener, and opt for a plant-based, dairy-free yogurt. Easy!
Is This Gluten-Free?
That will depend on the ingredients you purchase. Nothing here has any added gluten. So as long as you individual items you use are gluten-free, then this recipe is too.
Can I Make This With A Hand Mixer Or Electric Mixer?
You can, but it’s kind of like using a sledgehammer to crack an acorn. A simple whisk will do. A mixer would be more appropriate if you are multiplying this recipe many times over.
