Pumpkin Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bowl is a delicious and healthy breakfast that is perfectly seasonal for the fall, but also delicious year round. Any simple roasted pumpkin will work for this recipe, or if you are in a pinch, you can use a canned pumpkin puree in this breakfast.
We love this Pumpkin Greek Yogurt year round. But when the fall rolls around, this breakfast is at the table day and day again.
This Pumpkin Greek Yogurt is a Healthy Breakfast that is filling and nutritious
Pureed roasted pumpkins and bananas are the base of this recipe, while the Greek yogurt gives it a tinge of tang. Mixed together, this breakfast bowl is filling, healthy and incredibly tasty.
How to make Pumpkin Greek Yogurt
This is an easy to make pumpkin yogurt recipe. All the steps in the recipe can be done by a fork, or you can use a hand mixer to blitz it super quick.
If you are making this pumpkin Greek yogurt by hand, you’ll simply need to mash bananas and roasted pumpkin, and stir it all together with Greek yogurt.
Use a fork or hand mixer to make this pumpkin yogurt
Hand mixed Pumpkin Greek yogurt will have a bit more texture than if you blitzed it with a hand mixer. So if you want a very creamy breakfast bowl, break out the hand mixer.
You can also make pumpkin yogurt it in a blender, but because it’s a thick pumpkin breakfast bowl, I find that it gets caught in the blades too much. And if your blender bottom doesn’t unscrew, it’s difficult to get the pumpkin yogurt out of the base of the blender to serve.
You can make this breakfast with canned pumpkin puree or roasted pumpkins
I prefer to use roasted pumpkin to make this recipe because it gives the pumpkin yogurt more of a savory edge and depth of flavor.
Usually, we use leftover roasted pumpkin from the day before. Any simple roasted pumpkin will do, but I like to use the leftover roasted pumpkin from this Roasted Pumpkin on Toast.
However, you can use canned pumpkin too for this breakfast. We make it both ways and enjoy both.
It’s definitely a quicker breakfast when using canned pumpkin. It becomes a recipe we make on lazy mornings when I still want a healthy breakfast for the family.
This is a great pumpkin yogurt breakfast for babies and toddlers
It is becoming more common for our baby to serve as the inspiration for recipes on The Worktop.
His love for grilled fruits inspired this Bircher Muesli with Smashed Cherries and Grilled Apricots. His breakfast staple of mashed bananas and rice became Adzuki Beans on Banana Rice.
He strikes again with this Pumpkin Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bowl!
Babies love pumpkins and bananas mashed together! Add some Greek yogurt for extra protein.
I was watching baby eat breakfast. He would shove one piece of roasted pumpkin in his mouth, followed by one piece of banana.
At the end of the meal, his bowl was filled with pumpkins and bananas that his chubby fingers had inadvertently mashed together.
Being the designated garbage disposal, I ate his leftovers. My little boy had it figured out!
Eating his pumpkin and banana together gave him a sweet and savory creamy bite that was surprisingly addicting. Mixed in yogurt, the breakfast became even more creamy and delicious.
This Pumpkin Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bowl is a delicious breakfast recipe for the family year-round
Pumpkin is such a good year-round ingredient because you can buy it canned. But in the fall, it’s always special to use a roasted pumpkin in this recipe.
Embrace the craving for fall breakfasts by tweaking this recipe slightly too. How can you make this fall breakfast even more fall-like?
Love pumpkin spice? Make this into a pumpkin spice yogurt!
Yes you can! Satisfy your pumpkin spice craving by making this recipe into a pumpkin spice yogurt.
For the most basic pumpkin yogurt recipe, just add in a bit of cinnamon. But if you want pumpkin spice yogurt, simply swap out the cinnamon for pumpkin spice.
Store bought pumpkin spice works if you have that handy. Otherwise, look in the recipe notes where I list out the spices you’ll need.
Use your favorite toppings on this pumpkin Greek yogurt
To give contrast to the otherwise creamy texture of the Pumpkin Greek Yogurt, I top it with a handful of granola and some toasted pecans.
Feel free to top it with your favorite granola, nuts or seeds though. If you are making this Pumpkin Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bowl gluten free, make sure you use a gluten free granola topping.
You can also make this recipe vegan by using a soy yogurt, or another favorite vegan yogurt.
