Make Your Own Pumpkin Yogurt

Healthy Holiday Swap: DIY Pumpkin Yogurt

I love pumpkin-flavored anything — pies, muffins, cheesecake, even ice cream! But gorging on too many sweet pumpkin treats can leave me with a sick stomach full of unhealthy fats and sugars. One way I've been satisfying my pumpkin cravings is by making my own pumpkin-flavored yogurt at home.

It's really easy to do, just mix plain yogurt with canned pumpkin puree. If you're trying to cut back on sugar, use 100 percent pure pumpkin puree and add your own spices and sweetener. If you want the instant flavors of pumpkin pie, mix yogurt up with canned pumpkin pie puree that's been sweetened with sugar and spices.

I sometimes use vanilla yogurt with the pure pumpkin mix just to give it a little sweetness, and if I'm craving the texture of pumpkin pie, a nice sprinkling of healthy granola or oats seems to do the trick.

Wow, this sounds really yummy. I will definitely have to try that one! Normally we do a "crustless" pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving for the people that don't want to eat the crust, but this is a good way to do it for everyday pumpkin cravings.

I tried putting a dab of pumpkin on my oatmeal in the morning, with a little bit of brown sugar...it was fabulous!

I love pumpkin smoothies with yogurt, ice, spices, and touch of agave or maple.

I did this a few months ago when I had extra pumpkin after making bread. It's good with a sprinkle of cinnamon added -- tastes just like pumpkin pie filling :-)
