Pumpkin Pie Yogurt Bowl

GF VG

This pumpkin pie yogurt bowl is made with protein-packed yogurt, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, maple syrup and all your favorite toppings for the perfect nutritious fall breakfast!

I’m always looking for easy protein-packed breakfast ideas. Some of my favorites right now are my protein overnight oats, protein pancakes, baked egg muffins and protein shakes. But with fall right around the corner, I decided to bring back an old favorite of mine – 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 (I have tons of pumpkin recipes on the blog) and during this time of the year I like to put it in everything from yogurt to oatmeal to smoothies. Check out my favorite pumpkin oatmeal and pumpkin pie smoothie recipes for more pumpkin inspo.

Many mainstream yogurt brands have a pumpkin pie flavor now but it’s so easy to make at home. Especially when you have leftover canned pumpkin sitting around after baking something pumpkiny (like these oatmeal pumpkin cookies or this pumpkin bread).

Here’s What You Need

  • yogurt – can’t have pumpkin yogurt without yogurt! You’ll need 6 ounces of either plain or vanilla yogurt. Use a dairy-free option to make this vegan.
  • pumpkin puree – you can use canned pumpkin or homemade pumpkin puree. If you use canned pumpkin, make sure to grab pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling, which is loaded with added sugars.
  • pumpkin pie spice – make your own pumpkin pie spice or use store-bought.
  • cinnamon – cinnamon pairs perfectly with pumpkin pie spice!
  • maple syrup – a natural sweetener that elevates this pumpkin yogurt and adds a touch of sweetness. Feel free to use your favorite liquid sweetener here.
  • toppings – a true pumpkin pie yogurt bowl isn’t complete without toppings. My go-to’s are an extra scoop of pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice pepitas, pumpkin granola and a drizzle of almond butter, but feel free to use your favorite toppings! It would also be delicious with a scoop of my pumpkin butter.

What Type of Yogurt Is Best?

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.

One thing I recommend is to avoid buying fat-free yogurt. I think 2% or full-fat is much better because it tastes less tart, it is more full-bodied and satisfying, it will keep you full longer and fat is good for us!

My favorite brand of dairy yogurt is Fage 5% Greek yogurt or Stonyfield whole milk Greek yogurt and for a non-dairy option I love the Culina coconut yogurt.

How to Make Pumpkin Pie Yogurt

This recipe is SO easy to make and only requires one step! Simply combine your yogurt, pumpkin, spices and maple syrup in a bowl and stir until everything is mixed together. Add your toppings of choice and enjoy!

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 and mindlessly snacking is to make sure I have a breakfast with a combination of protein, carbs, healthy fats and fiber – this breakfast does the trick!

Can I Meal Prep This Pumpkin Yogurt Bowl?

Absolutely! This recipe makes one serving, but you can easily multiple the recipe to make a big batch. I love meal prepping this pumpkin yogurt over the weekend so I have breakfast ready to go for the week ahead.

Just combine all your ingredients in a bowl and store in an airtight container glass container or mason jar in the fridge for up to 5 days. Add toppings of choice immediately before serving.

      This recipe is delicious. This was the perfect mix of pumpkin to yogurt with the right amount of sweetness. I’ve made it with plain Siggi yogurt and added walnuts as a topping as that is what I had in the pantry.
      It’s great to have a flavored yogurt without all the added sugar.
      Totally love this.
      Thanks for the recipe.

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

      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.
