Healthy Halloween Snack

 'Tis the season for pumpkins and all kinds of pumpkin recipes to try! While doing a little recipe surfing, I found this Dairy Mom approved Pumpkin Cheesecake Shake that looks perfect for healthy Halloween  snacking or a special treat with family and friends.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Shake


1 can (14ounces) pumpkin,chilled
3 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
1  container (6ounces) low-fat vanilla yogurt
2 cups low-fat milk
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
6 teaspoons graham cracker crumbs,optional

Place all ingredients (except graham cracker crumbs) in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and top each serving with a teaspoon of graham cracker crumbs, if desired.

You can find other nutritious recipes and information about dairy at Dairy Makes Sense.



  1. I'm going to try this for the girls. Looks great!

  2. This looks amazing! I often mix pumpkin with my yogurt, but this is a new twist!
