These quick and easy Pumpkin Pie Cheesecakes feature a no-bake Greek Yogurt filling that is not only a healthier dessert option, but also effortless to prepare!
This year my green thumb was feeling a bit lazy and I didn't want to plant the elaborate garden I've conjured up in previous years. However, since I have a labyrinth of raised beds in my backyard, I needed to plant something to take up the space that didn't require me doting over it all summer long, like some sort of leafy intensive care patient.
Cue the pumpkins.
I figured pumpkins were perfect. Not only do they sprawl out like an invading horde, blanketing my naked raised beds, by definition pumpkins don't need to be worried about till pumpkin season in the fall! It was the perfect lazy man's garden.
However, I was a little over zealous with my pumpkin planting this spring. Not only did the vines succeed in taking over my raised beds, they became overly crowded and my pumpkins never reached full size. I was a full-fledged mini pumpkin farmer!
What better way to celebrate a mini pumpkin harvest than with mini Pumpkin Pie Cheesecakes?
Even if you aren't laboring away in the field harvesting a trove of mini pumpkins, life gets busy for many people this time of year. Making delicious desserts can become more stress than they are worth.
How about this year you make these Quick and Easy Pumpkin Pie Cheesecakes?
These things are great for multiple reasons. First of all, they are perfectly portioned individual servings. Second of all, they take only minutes to prepare since there is no baking involved. Finally, they use Dannon® Oikos® Pumpkin Pie Greek Yogurt® as flavoring, making them a much healthier option than traditional sugar-ladened cheesecake.
To make quick and easy mini pies at home you really only need three things: Mini pie crusts, Dannon® Oikos®, and Reddi-wip® for topping! These are perfect for customizing to your own tastes and getting creative with as well. I blend cream cheese with Dannon® Oikos® Pumpkin Pie Greek Yogurt® for my Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake filling.
I found everything I need for this recipe at Walmart. Plus, they had the Dannon® Oikos® and Reddi-wip® next to each other in a refrigerated bin. It was meant to be!
