Pumpkin Spice Yogurt Bowl

Pumpkin spice season is in full effect. Every basic witch has to start her day with something frightening good. This Pumpkin Spice Yogurt Bowl would leave all the witches AMUCK AMUCK AMUCK.

I think it looks really cute all put together too. A major plus in my book.

When assembling this Pumpkin Spice Yogurt Bowl, I tried to make it look like a PSL. Here’s the ingredients I used to make it look like that…

  • Yogurt (I use chobani vanilla)
  • Pumpkin spice
  • Granola
  • Pumpkin candies
  • Caramel drizzle

First, put the yogurt in a bowl and mix pumpkin spice in it. Like with most of my recipes, I eyeballed this one too. Depending on how much you like pumpkin spice depends on how much you’ll want to add.

For the coffee look alike, the yogurt looks like whipped cream on top.

Then, lay a nice layer of granola at the bottom part of the bowl. I think it’d be a good idea to mix pumpkin spice in here too.

I thought this mimicked the look of coffee.

Next, line up a few candy pumpkins between the granola and yogurt. I’m not a huge fan of these, but mixed with the yogurt and granola, I enjoyed it. Again, it also made the bowl super cute too.

To top it off, I added caramel drizzle. I love it on all my coffees and it made the yogurt a little sweeter too.

I actually loved how this turned out. It tasted yummy and was quick to make.

Yogurt bowls are quick and easy breakfasts for our typical busy mornings. I also love that you can premake them to easily grab too.

This Pumpkin Spice Yogurt Bowl makes me feel like a Halloqueen and I think you’ll love it too.

DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte

One of my favorite parts about fall is a good Pumpkin Spice Latte. Not only does it warm me up, it tastes delicious too. Since we don’t live super close to a Starbucks, I love making my own DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte.

In this blog post, I’ve decided to show you all my two go to options. One’s more a weekend at home recipe and the other is a quick morning recipe.

Both taste amazing!

The first recipe is the one I make on slow mornings. It makes the house smell amazing and really sets the tone for the rest of the day.

Here’s what you’ll need for it:

For this Pumpkin Spice Latte DIY, you’ll need to warm the pumpkin puree, milk, pumpkin spice mix, sugar, and salt in a pot. Keep stirring these ingredients together until they’re simmering. While this is happening, you can make your coffee or espresso.

Then, add the coffee into the pumpkin spice mix and mix both of them together until frothed. You can also use a blender to speed up this process.

After, pour into your favorite mug, add whipped cream and pumpkin spice, and then enjoy your tasty drink.

If you think that was simple. You’ll love this even more.

Our mornings are BUSY. Getting myself, Mila, and the dogs ready for the day gets chaotic. I feel like we’re constantly running around. When I finally get to school, I need a pick me up. So, before the craziness, I make sure to make this easy drink to get me through the day.

All you need for a quick DIY Pumpkin Spice Latte is Javy Coffee and Pumpkin Spice Latte Creamer (I use Starbucks!).

Javy Coffee is SO easy to use. It’s coffee concentrate where you fill your cup up with milk or water, then one to two teaspoons of Jacy too! It can made both hot and cold. I change it up depending on my mood (and how it feels outside). Afterwards, add your creamer and take it to go!

Both of these recipes are perfect for parents on calm and busy mornings.

DIY Pumpkin Spice Play Dough Recipe

It’s almost fall, so that means it’s time for autumn themed play. This week, we made pumpkin spice play dough.

Not only does it smell amazing, it’s a ton of fun to play with… for kids and adults!

One BIG thing about this recipe is that it makes a lot of play dough. I was actually really surprised with how much there was after I made it. Honestly, I would suggest cutting this recipe in half. Unless you want to gift some to others!

The best part of this DIY play dough is that it’s only four ingredients and you don’t even need to cook it like other recipes.

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • Dash of pumpkin spice

It’s crazy that you can make good smelling play dough with only four ingredients… really only three main ones if you don’t want it to smell like pumpkin spice.

Mila helped make everything! We measured out all of the ingredients and she helped pour everything in. At first we started stirring it with a fork, then it got too thick and we had to start mixing it with our hands.

For the pumpkin spice, we poured a lot more than a dash. We poured it in until we could smell it!

She ended up playing with it for a long time. I think play dough really calms her. It’s also fun to watch her do pretend play with play dough. Another way you can challenge your toddler or preschooler to play with play dough is to have them make different shapes. It’s fun to watch them try to figure out how to make the shape with their hands.

To store this play dough, just keep it in an air tight container in the refrigerator. Mines in a ziplock baggie with all the air pushed out.

Before Mila plays with it, I just have it on the counter to warm up a little bit.

I’ve been trying to take more videos, but I’m forgetting to take pictures… oops. Thankfully I can share them on here.

It’s fun to watch the memories live instead of just pictures. I’ll try to do both!

I can’t wait to see all the times Mila plays with the play dough throughout the season. If we think of more fun ways to play, I’ll share them here with you.


Have you ever made play dough before? What’s your favorite type to make?

I definitely want to try different scented ones!
