Protein Packed Pumpkin Pie Yogurt Bowl

GF VG

This protein packed pumpkin pie yogurt bowl is the perfect fall breakfast. Loaded with protein packed yogurt, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice and all your favorite toppings!

I’m always looking for easy protein-packed breakfast ideas. Currently I’m hooked on my hormone balancing breakfast, but recently I decided to bring an old favorite back — this pumpkin pie yogurt bowl.

Bowl filled with yogurt and pumpkin and topped with seeds, granola and almond butter. Spoon and pumpkin off to the side.

Pumpkin is my favorite fall flavor and during this time of the year I like to put it in everything — including yogurt. Many mainstream yogurt brands have a pumpkin pie flavor now, but it’s so easy to make it at home. Especially when you have leftover pumpkin sitting around after baking something pumpkiny (like these pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip cookies).

You can use whatever type of yogurt you’d like and even make the recipe vegan by using coconut milk or almond milk yogurt. Neutral flavors like plain and vanilla will work best and if you’re trying to amp up your protein skyr or Greek yogurt will give you the most per serving.

Since a true pumpkin pie yogurt bowl isn’t complete without toppings, I added an extra scoop of pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice pepitas, grain-free granola and a drizzle of almond butter.

Each bite is filled with thick, creamy yogurt and a bit of crunch. Most importantly, this meal keeps me full all morning! I’ve found the key to keeping myself from being ravenous between meals is to make sure I have a combination of protein, carbs, healthy fat and fiber — this breakfast did the trick!

Aren’t recipes with one step the best? I think so, especially when it comes to breakfast and I’m running around the house like a mad woman trying to make it to the gym, shower, eat and look presentable for work.

      Is canned pumpkin the same as purée? I am only able to find purée in baby food. Thank you!

        Yes! It’s definitely the same thing!

      I tried this and again failed at what I am trying to make at home to save on money. The noosa pumpkin yogurt is by far the best pumpkin yogurt I’ve ever tasted but the price is so high! When I did this recipe it was so gross I had to throw the whole thing out and wasted all my ingredients! The pumpkin taste so raw and disgusting! What do I have to do to make some pumpkin yogurt at home actually taste like noosa or at least good enough to eat!

        Hi Chantal. I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy this recipe. I’ve had the Noosa pumpkin yogurt and it is really good. The reason this doesn’t taste similar is because the Noosa yogurt has a lot of sugar, 30 grams total and 17 grams are added sugar from cane sugar and honey. This recipe has only 15 grams. What brand of yogurt and pumpkin did you use? I’ve found that some canned pumpkin brands taste far better than others.

      Hi!
      What are your thoughts on fat free yogurt?
      Thank you,

        I know this response is way late, but I wanted to share that I don’t love fat free yogurt. I think 2% or full-fat is much better because it tastes better (less tart, more full-bodied), it’s more satisfying, will keep you full longer and fat is good for us! 🙂
