Pumpkin Spice Whipped Greek Yogurt is an incredible make-ahead protein packed dessert that tastes JUST LIKE pumpkin pie filling – made with plain Greek yogurt, canned pumpkin, and sweetened only with maple syrup.
1 cup whole fat or 2% plain Greek yogurt (such as Fage)
1/4 cupheavywhipping cream (at least 36% milk fat)
2 tablespoonsmaple syrup
1/2 teaspoonvanilla extract
1/2 teaspoonpumpkin spice
1/4 teaspoonground cinnamon
pinch of salt (optional)
1/3 cupcanned pumpkin (unsweetened with pumpkin as the only ingredient)
Add ingredients: Add all ingredients except the canned pumpkin to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, or use a hand mixer.
Whip yogurt: Begin mixing on low for about 20 seconds, until the liquid cream begins to mix into the yogurt. Slowly increase power to the highest speed. After about 2 minutes of whisking, pause mixing and use a spatula to give the yogurt a quick mix – push down the sides of the bowl and make sure the very bottom is mixed in. Continue mixing for another 2-3 minutes, or until soft peaks form when the whisk is removed. The peaks will not be super stiff, but will still stand up.
Add pumpkin: Add the canned pumpkin to the mixing bowl and fold in by hand until well mixed.
Serve & store: Place the mixture into individual portion containers or a large bowl with a lid. Enjoy now or place in the fridge for 3-4 hours – the whipped Greek yogurt will thicken as it chills. Top with whipped cream if you wish! Store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
