This time of year the cool crisp weather has us dreaming about the flavors that come with the season. Fall always reminds me of the pumpkin bundt cake my grandma used to always make. I think of my grandma as I create new pumpkin recipes like this easy homemade pumpkin spice yogurt recipe that I am going to share with you today.
I love having lots of pumpkin frozen and ready to use in the freezer, of course you can always use pumpkin puree from a can too if you desire.
For this recipe, you will need:
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt (I use my homemade yogurt)
- 1/4 cup pumpkin
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ginger
- 1/8 tsp cloves (or a drop of doterra clove essential oil)
- pinch of nutmeg
- pinch of turmeric
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- Qi’a or hemp/chia seeds (optional)
(Note: If you do not have all these spices, you can use 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 a tsp pumpkin pie spice which makes a similar result)
Mix first 8 ingredients together, top with Qi’a or hemp/chia seeds if desired – you may also add more syrup on top if you desire a sweeter flavor.
It’s as easy as that – a simple fall treat that you can feel good about eating. My girls love to call it “Pumpkin Pie Yogurt“.
