My family and I had a summer full of sickness so I am ready to kiss summer bye-bye-bye and eat all the pumpkin spice spice spice.
Easy Pumpkin Breakfast Recipes
These Pumpkin Pie Yogurt Overnight Oats combine two of my favorite things: pumpkin and Greek yogurt. In the words of Ina Garten, "How bad could that be?"
It can't. There's just no way in a cock-a-doodle-doo these oats could be bad. Creamy, protein-rich yogurt, sweet pumpkin, and chewy old-fashioned oats make for an incredibly easy pumpkin breakfast you'll want to eat all year long.
This Maple Pumpkin Spice Trail Mix is a *HUGE* hit and everyone loves it! It's by far one of my most popular recipes. The pecans and granola are candied in pure maple syrup before being baked. Yes, you have to turn on a oven for a second, but it's worth it!
Once cooked, dried apricots, tart dried cherries, and delicious cinnamon chips are added to the mix. It's so good and not too pumpkiny so it's a great way to start off the fall season!
This Pumpkin Banana Smoothie is a pure crowd pleaser especially while it's still warm outside!!!

Move over sweet tooths, there's a new attitude in the mix, and it comes in the form of this savory and Easy Pumpkin Toast.

Add your favorite toppings, and you're good to go.
You truly get the best of both worlds with this Leftover Pumpkin Pie Milkshake.

If they require nothing more than throwing everything into a blender, giving them a whirl, then pouring everything into a dish to set? Yes, please!

I am absolutely obsessed with this mini pumpkin cheesecake recipe because the crust is nothing but a gingersnap cookie placed into the bottom of a muffin liner. How effortless is that?!? Top these babies off with a dollop of homemade nutmeg whipped cream, and you're good to go!

I love this Spiked Pumpkin Horchata recipe because it is so versatile. First off, you can easily skip the alcohol and have your kids help you make it. Then you can make for a friend or family member in need or make a big batch for a Halloween party.
Speaking of parties, this Boozy Pumpkin Party Punch will make an excellent addition to any autumn shower, wedding, or event. Erica gives some excellent tips on how much punch you'll need for your shindig as well as different ways to customize the party punch to fit your own liking and theme.
