I know I’m running the risk of pumpkin overload here but frankly, I can’t get enough of that orange goodness (heck, we just did a Recipe ReDux orange theme that resulted in over 60 delicious pumpkin, squash and carrot recipes.) But one morning I wanted to jazz up my bowl of greek yogurt and thought why not pumpkin pie yogurt? And really, why should I have to wait until Thanksgiving to enjoy the flavors of my favorite fall dessert? (just hold the cloves, please.)

I realize this isn’t all that unique – I mean there are pumpkin pie lattes, pumpkin pie donuts, pumpkin pie beer, pumpkin pie oatmeal – the list goes on this time of year. But of course, a lot of these recipes are really treats vs. everyday type foods. I wanted to make something I could enjoy more than one day out of the year.

I was inspired by this Frozen Pumpkin Yogurt recipe from Relish magazine – I significantly lowered the sugar content, upped the yogurt amount and tweaked the spices – along with skipping the ice cream freezer step. So simple but this really is like eating a healthy version of pumpkin pie that you can enjoy every fall morning if you like.

The fresh nutmeg makes a huge difference in recipes! We like to grate it over our lattes at home.

Great idea! I'm planning to make yogurt this weekend, and I will try this variation. My children have been bugging me to make pumpkin pie, but this would be a nice alternative.

YUM. I myself am also about to embark on pumpkin overload...but who cares?! It's fall! This looks delicious and I'm trying it today, as I already have an opened can of pumpkin just waiting to be used up :) Kudos!
