Pumpkin spice and a lot of other things that are nice! That’s what we have here – cinnamon-sprinkled smooth, creamy pumpkin, yogurt, and nut butter. Mix in some fruit, nuts or seeds, and you have a darn delicious meal or snack.

This recipe is very flexible and substitute-friendly! All measurements are approximate, so please experiment to find what works best for your taste. 😋



1/2 cup pumpkin puree

1/2 cup plain yogurt of choice 

1/2 cup diced fruit or berries of choice

1/41/2 scoop of protein powder (optional)

1 tablespoon nut butter

12 teaspoons ground flaxseed 

1 tablespoon chopped nuts (optional)

1/21 teaspoon cinnamon (I just give the jar a few good shakes.)


Combine all ingredients in a big-enough bowl.

Mix well. 

Eat with a diligent spoon. 😉



  • Pumpkin subs: Applesauce, although not as nutrient-dense, makes a great substitute.
  • Dairy-free subs for yogurt: plant-based yogurt or milk, mashed banana or 1/2 avocado.
  • Yogurt subs: sour cream, crème fraîche, ricotta, or cottage cheese.
  • Fruit: I love pears in my bowl (so “fall”!). Apples, oranges, berries, plums, peaches, bananas … Really, almost any fruit will be great.
  • Almond butter: try peanut, cashew, sunflower, hazelnut butter.
  • Flaxseed: Chia seeds or hemp hearts.


Sprinkle in whole or chopped nuts or seeds as you like.

Nutrition information is based on nonfat plain yogurt, almond butter, 1/4 scoop Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard protein powder, no nuts, and 1 tsp flaxseed.
