I cannot wait to share this Greek Yogurt Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe with you! It is so rich and creamy yet much healthier than typical cheesecakes. I lightened it up by using low-fat Greek yogurt and neufchatel cream cheese instead of regular. There is a whole can of pumpkin in this recipe for lots of vitamin A and C. I used less sugar yet is still tastes totally sweet. It tastes so indulgent and I am so excited to have come up with this recipe. I hope you enjoy!

It was recently my dad's birthday coming up and I was going to be making a pie for the blog. I couldn't decide what kind to make and I thought, why don't I make my dad's favorite since the timing worked out perfectly for his birthday. Pumpkin cheesecake is my dad's favorite and my husband's favorite so it works out perfectly. I brought this Greek yogurt pumpkin cheesecake to the farm to surprise my dad.

When I started experimenting with using Greek yogurt in a cheesecake a year ago, I haven't stopped trying different kinds. Try my Carrot Cake CheesecakeBerry Cheesecake Tart and Banana Bread Cheesecake. I think that they are amazing! They are so much healthier than traditional cheesecake yet taste just as rich and creamy. It's one of those hacks like banana ice cream that I want to scream from the rooftops!! I also love these Pumpkin Cheesecake Overnight Oats.

Greek yogurt pumpkin cheesecake is actually really easy to make and is kind of a foolproof recipe. You know how I know?

My mom has always made my dad's pumpkin cheesecake with pie crust instead of graham cracker crust. It is just how we like it! I was definitely not about to make my own crust so I used one that I trusted that was a tiny bit healthier than typical pie crust: Wewalka pie crust. What makes it better? It uses no lard like many pie crusts do. It is 25% thicker than other crusts and fits perfectly in a 9" pie pan. It is beyond easy to use. Just unroll it, lay it in your pie pan and bake. It has no artificial flavors or colors added either. It was the perfect addition to this Greek yogurt pumpkin cheesecake!
