Protein Packed Pumpkin Pie Yogurt Bowl

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! 🙂

      I’ve never seen pumpkin spice yogurt here in Canada (you guys get such a better selection of products in the US!) so I’ve always loved making my own pumpkin yogurt. The toppings on this look fabulous!

      Yum… Can’t wait to try. I recently found pumpkin spice yogurt at one of my local grocery stores, but of course, it’s onlt seasonal and they are out already… so can’t wait to try this. One question though is the canned pumpkin the same canned pumpkin you use for pumpkin pies, cause I know I have seen receipes where they call for canned pumpkin but state specifically not the pumpkin used for pumpkin pies?

      1. Brittany Mullins
        October 15, 2012 AT 9:49 pm

        I hope you love it Shannon. Just make sure you get canned pumpkin not canned pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin pie filling contains added sugar and spices which you don’t need for this recipe. 🙂

      If I were to use Agave nectar as a sweetener, how much would I use? I have a bottle I’ve never opened because I don’t know how much to use. Just looking for a guideline, really. I’ve often drizzled honey on my overnight oats, etc… but I wouldn’t mind trying the agave. Thanks for the recipe. It looks amazing!

        Hi Jen, I think agave’s sweetness is similar to that of honey. I would probably use about 1 teaspoon and see if it’s sweet enough for my tastes. Let me know what you think.

      I can’t wait to give this a try – but I do have a (silly) question. I have a can of pumpkin and once you open it, can you just store the remainder in a container in the fridge? I cherish my canned pumpkins during this season and would hate for them to go to waste. Thanks 🙂

      1. Eating Bird Food
        October 22, 2011 AT 3:37 pm

        Hi Colleen, that’s definitely not a silly questions. Once you open the can of pumpkin just put the remaining amount in a container in the fridge. It should last about 1-2 weeks so no worries about wasting it!

          Actually, it wii keep much longer if you freeze it! I use my ice cream scoop and level it with a knife. It’s exactly 1/2 cup. Scoop pumpkin onto a pan, lined with wax paper. The next day, put the frozen pucks into a zip-lock freezer bag and you have 1/2 cup, premeasured puree that’s ready to go! Simply thaw at room temperature or microwave for about 30 seconds when you need it.

      So every morning before heading into school (I am a teacher), I spend some time on the internet while eating my breakfast. My week has been a bit crazy, so I needed to catch up on your blog. When I saw this recipe it made my morning! I was looking for a change in my morning snack. After realizing I had all the ingredients I grabbed my pyrex and started mixing! It smelled awesome and couldn’t wait to try it on my prep this morning. It was awesome! I added Bear Naked Oats and Honey with Flax Granola (I took out the blueberries and added raisins) and since I didn’t have chia I added ground flax. Thank you so much for a change in my morning snack! I can’t wait to have another batch!

      Mmm this looks delicious 🙂
      I love overnight oats, I’m feeling pretty ill at the moment and it’s the meal that appeals the most right now!
      I want mine in a jar like yours! 😛

      This is a great snack idea! I love that you included pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. It is the season of pumpkins and they are so healthy too! I’m looking forward to trying the recipe.
