These New Pumpkin Spice Yogurts Will Crush Fall Cravings
Fall is just around the corner and that means ’tis the season for everything pumpkin spice. While we totally understand the sweet appeal of seasonal PSLs—over 70 percent of millennials wish that the latte would be available all year long!—these bevs are way too caloric to be sipping on regularly.
Get your fall fix by spooning into something more slimming and satiating instead. Our favorite yogurt brands such as Siggi’s and Chobani have officially rolled out their versions of pumpkin yogurt and we couldn’t be more excited to dig in!
Siggi’s fall-inspired flavor, Pumpkin & Spice, features a clean ingredient list including skim milk, cream, pumpkin, and Madagascar Bourbon vanilla. And the nutritionals ensure you’re indulging in a guilt-free snack: One cup contains 140 calories, 3 grams of fat (1.5 grams saturated), 14 grams of carbs (0 grams of fiber, 11 grams of sugar), and 15 grams of muscle-building protein.
Siggi’s Icelandic skyr is made from grass-fed milk that’s strained multiple times to achieve its unbelievably creamy texture. While you’ll love it on its own for breakfast or a midday pick-me-up, if you’re up for getting creative in the kitchen, try making energy bites with the ‘gurt. Just combine a cup of the spiced skyr with dates, pecans, chia seeds, and oats for a chewy and portable protein-packed treat.
For another sweet and savory option, try Chobani’s Greek Yogurt Blended with Pumpkin & Spice. This pick is sweetened with cane sugar and warmly spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. The best part is it’s got real pumpkin puree. One 5.3-ounce container packs in 120 calories, 2.5 grams of fat (1.5 grams saturated), 14 grams of carbs (less than 1 gram of fiber, 12 grams of sugar), and 11 grams of protein. You’ll also get a whopping 40 percent of your daily value of skin-rejuvenating vitamin A as well as 15 percent of your DV of bone-building calcium.
For a more decadent—and occasional—choice, try the Chobani Flip Pumpkin Harvest Crisp, which packs in crunchy pie crust pieces, glazed pumpkin seeds, and pecans. Just be sure to save this cup for dessert, as it contains 200 calories, 17 grams of sugar, and 12 grams of protein.
