Love all-things pumpkin, but don’t have time to measure millions of ingredients and wait for the dish to bake? Then try this easy pumpkin custard! With fiber-filled pumpkin and protein-packed yogurt, sneaking some extra spoonfuls is highly encouraged. Plus, this crust-less delight cuts out the fat-and-calorie laden traditional pie crust.
