I love Greek yogurt but can't get used to eating the plain variety. Recently while in the Amish Country in Pennsylvania I bought something called pumpkin butter (it doesn't contain butter -- it's more like a pumpkin pie filling) I add a tablespoon of this to my plain Greek yogurt and it's delicious. And the calorie count is no higher than if I were to eat the vanilla flavor. Sometimes I add a sprinkle of cinnamon.

I buy canned pumpkin (not pie mix -- just plain ol' pumpkin) and blend with my plain, non-fat yogurt, banana/frozen berries, and protein powder. If I don't use frozen fruit, then I toss in some ice. The pumpkin makes the texture almost fluffy, plus I start my day with a veggie!
Just check the label: no salt, no sugar, no flavorings or preservatives. It's just 100% Pure Pumpkin YIPEE! Slather some pumpkin mixture on wheat bread and mic with 1 wedge of Laughing Cow light vceamy swiss cheese & a slice of Bordens Fat Free Cheese and Grill with onions to get Pumpkin Grilled Cheese.
