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.
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!

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!

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.
