Maybe by the middle of October you are sick of all things pumpkin-flavored. But not me. On Saturday, while I was digging through my cabinet looking for spices to make that delicious pumpkin cheesecake bread, I found a bottle of pumpkin pie spice that had been pushed to the back when the pumpkin-flavored season came to an end last year. Determined to get my fill of the spice du jour I came up with my own pumpkin pie-flavored concoction. Pumpkin Pie Spice Greek yogurt! Here's what you'll need.
Pumpkin Pie Spice Greek Yogurt (one serving):
- 1 cup of Greek yogurt
- 1/3 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or a pinch of each of the following: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove)
- Splash of vanilla extract
- Spoonful of honey (maple syrup would also be delicious!)
- 1/4 cup granola (I like this homemade recipe)
- One apple, sliced
These flavors were so good together that you better believe I tried it with my morning coffee. Yep. Add a dash of spice, a splash of vanilla extract and a bit of honey and you have a heavenly homemade pumpkin-spice flavored coffee. Take that, Starbucks!
ohhhh thanks for the idea! sounds delicious!!ReplyDelete
Yummy, spiced yogurt sounds delicious right now - far more exciting than my cereal and almost as easy!ReplyDelete
That sounds wonderful! Made a wallet-busting trip to Whole Foods yesterday to restock our house and have a huge container of greek yogurt just waiting to be jazzed up.ReplyDelete
I had my first pumpkin-flavored thing of the season this morning - steel cut oats with flax meal, cloves, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and coconut palm sugar - was super good until I over killed it on the cloves. Should probably stick to pumpkin pie spice in the future ;)
Regarding your comment on my last post: It would be so wonderful to get to meet you - The Rose is the perfect place too! That's where we shot my bridals and I haven't been back since Jenn helped me with that :)
Australians don't do the pumpkin as a sweet food thing. Pumpkin is a savory vegetable for making soups out of or roasting or putting in risotto. I think I've only tried pumpkin pie once & didn't really like it. Everyone raves about pumpkin spice lattes, so if we're ever in America in the fall, I'll have to try one.ReplyDelete
Greek yoghurt, however, we love. Lulu ate so much greek yoghurt last night for dinner, among other things. She also has it smeared all over her face, hair, her tray....
Yes, just gotta love that pumpkin spice. My favorite is (your recipe) for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies made with a boxed spice cake mix. I'll have to try both your recipes. My office mate makes our coffee in the morning and today, She made a pumpkin flavored coffee (pre-flavored). It was good, but I think it will be better made with adding our own spices. Thanks for sharing. xoxoReplyDelete
Oh, this looks so good! I am currently addicted to Target's Greek yogurt with honey-- I think the brand is The Greek Gods-- such a yummy treat (and great breakfast too)!ReplyDelete
