Fall is here! It’s the time of year for carving pumpkins … and craving pumpkin spice. The only issue? Pumpkin spice lattes are pumped full of sugar. Here’s how to get your pumpkin spice fix the healthy way — no matter how much time you have!
1. Under 5 Minutes: Pumpkin Spice Greek Yogurt
Busy? This healthy treat comes together in less time than you’d spend in the latte line! Plus, it’s packed with protein. Just sprinkle some pumpkin pie spice and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup into plain Greek yogurt and stir. Want to go over-gourd? Add a scoop of canned pumpkin into the mix!

Already carving jack-o-lanterns? This time, save the seeds and roast them — pumpkin spice style! If you’re short on time, stick with store-bought. Either way, you’ll wind up with a seasonal snack that won’t throw your healthy goals off track.
