Had some request from readers for a yogurt recipe so here you go – Pumpkin Greek Yogurt.
Hey guys! I am still riding a high on this new site layout. I am in love with all the features of this site, the home page, the thumbnail category archives… everything! The cooking has been simple this week because I was so occupied with the site changeover and the fact that I have a full-time job that is sometimes a more-than-full-time job.
One of my favorite creations of late (I only put up my favorites on Tasty Little Crouton) is this healthy pumpkin Greek yogurt. Now that I’m thinking about it, this is the first pumpkin recipe I’m posting! That’s a little insane since Pinterest, all the recipe sites, and so many blogs are plastered in pumpkin everything! I did have a little pumpkin rant in September, and I stuck with my gut and waited until October to get in the pumpkin spirit. To be honest, pumpkin is not one of my favorites for fall. I l.o.v.e. butternut squash, acorn squash, and spaghetti squash, but pumpkin falls behind the other gourds for me. That said, pumpkin pie is awesome. And so is this Greek yogurt, which kind of tastes like pumpkin pie.
It starts with plain, nonfat Greek yogurt, which is thick and creamy and delicious on its own, but it’s not dessert. Too tangy. Thanks to the addition of pumpkin puree, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice, this is sweet enough that it can be either breakfast or dessert. That’s pretty dope.
Four ingredients. 105 calories per 3/4 cup serving. Less than 1 gram of fat and over 12 grams of protein per serving. Read that again. It’s right.
Compared to the flavored pumpkin pie Greek yogurts you can get in the store, this has less than half the carbs. I checked a couple brands, and they have 26-30 grams of carbs in a 6-ounce serving. This is better. And cheaper. And tastes really, really good.
This is to-die-for topped with granola, and I’ll be dropping a recipe on ya really soon for a great option (pumpkin and almond granola, anyone?). But even on its own, this yogurt is lick-the-bowl good.
This is a must-try. Save the extra naughty desserts and real pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, and try this healthy pumpkin pie flavored Greek yogurt to hit the spot. And stay tuned for that granola recipe. Maybe I’ll get it posted tomorrow! Cheers!!
