3 fall flavored Greek yogurt recipes

November?  No way.

I’ve been trapped in a time warp better known as dougnnutland.  I hit a big deadline yesterday and 50% of the book is now complete.  Woohoo!!  Super exciting! 

How did I celebrate?  Wine + popcorn + TV.

And then by getting back in the kitchen to make the following.

Last spring, I made a few quick dips using Greek yogurt and they ended up being quite the hit.  I decided to revisit that idea with a little fall twist.  You know, because I just can’t help but transform everything I eat into tasting like fall.

First up, we have Cinnamon Apple Spice with Caramel + Walnuts.

Caramel is one of my all time favorite treats.  Caramel apples?  Even better.

I’ve sweetened and flavored the yogurt with apple butter + a few spices, then topped it with diced apples, walnuts, and a caramel drizzle.

Next up?

You knew there was going to be a pumpkin version.  There was just no question.

Pumpkin spices, maple sweetened, and topped with graham crackers + pecans.

I like my pumpkin pie with a graham cracker crust.  Gives it a nice little crunch.  And I’m currently obsessed with unsalted, roasted pecans.  So those were thrown in just because.  Just because they are awesome.

Last but not least, my favorite, tiramisu.

With no ladies or fingers or lady fingers in site. Unless that is you want to dip lady fingers into this jar of cocoa-espresso-Kahlua laced, honey sweetened, Greek yogurt goodness.

But I think I’ll just stick to a spoon.

3 Fall Flavored Greek Yogurt Recipes

My absolute favorite brand of Greek yogurt is Wallaby Organic Plain 2%.  It’s the lowest in sugar that I’ve seen, is packed with 23 grams of protein per serving, has a super creamy texture, and a light tang.  I recommend 2% fat [or higher] Greek yogurt for these recipes.  Add more sweetener to any of these if desired. All Greek yogurts vary in their tanginess so more may need to be added. 

Cinnamon Apple Spice with Caramel + Walnuts

  • 2 cups 2% plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup no sugar added apple butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1-2 apples, diced
  • chopped walnuts
  • caramel

Pumpkin Spice with Graham Crackers + Pecans

  • 1.5 cups 2% plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup full-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon clove
  • crushed graham crackers
  • roasted, unsalted pecans

Tiramisu

For adults!

  • 2 cups 2% plain Greek yogurt
  • 6 tablespoons mascarpone cheese*, softened
  • 1/4 cup Kahlua
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • dark chocolate chips to top

*sub full-fat cream cheese instead of mascarpone if needed

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl for 1 of 3 recipes.  For the pumpkin + tiramisu recipes, use a hand mixer to beat the mixture until smooth.  A blender would also work.  The apple version can be stirred together with a spoon until well combined.
  2. Top with desired toppings and chill before serving, which will help thicken the mixture.  When topping the apple cinnamon with apples, be sure to toss the diced apples with lemon juice and drain any excess juice off, then place on the yogurt.
  3. Serve in dessert cups, jars, or even shot glasses with mini spoons.  Or, serve in a bowl and offer with a side of dippers. ie: sliced fruit, vanilla cake, cinnamon tortilla chips, etc.

These are perfect little treats for the kiddos or maybe even a baby shower or wedding shower.  Just don’t serve your kids the one with kahlua + espresso in it, k?
