Where we live it doesn’t start to get cold until Winter time so baking warm bread and pumpkin pie isn’t something we can enjoy during Fall.
Turning a yogurt smoothie into a pumpkin pie is our way to stay cool but not miss out on those delicious fall flavors.
Before I go into the recipe let me take you on a trip to the past…*cue warpy video imaging and time capsule music*
When I was a little girl I was NOT A FAN of sushi so my Godfather would pack on the soy sauce for me to get me to eat it. After that, he would pour less soy sauce on my plate each time he would make it.
Little did I know, he was training my tiny taste buds until one day I could have the sushi without any added flavor at all and really actually enjoy it.
*fast forward to present day* when I use his method for everything new with my kids, including yogurt!
WHAT IS GREEK YOGURT?
Greek yogurt and regular yogurt are made using the same ingredients but Greek yogurt is thicker because more of the whey has been strained off.
(If you strain the yogurt long enough then you can even turn it into cream cheese.)
WHY NOT JUST USE MILK TO MAKE THIS PUMPKIN PIE SMOOTHIE?
The probiotics in yogurt are what make this sweet treat HEALTHY!
DO I NEED GREEK YOGURT TO MAKE THIS?
No, I just prefer to make ours using homemade greek yogurt but store bought regular yogurt is fine to use also.
