This Pumpkin Spice Fauxgurt recipe can easily be doubled or tripled. There’s no need to double the granola recipe, though, as it makes enough to serve four. You can serve it alongside the yogurt and have some left over to snack on later.


  • 300 grams soft tofu
  • Juice and zest of one lemon
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin spice (cinnamon, ginger, pinch of nutmeg, pinch of cloves, pinch of allspice)


  1. Add all fauxgurt ingredients to blender. Pulse a few times and scrape down sides of the blender with silicone spatula. Repeat pulsing, before stopping and scraping down sides to ensure all ingredients have a chance to be pulsed together.
  2. Blend on high until chia seeds have been broken down into tofu mixture.
  3. Place in a bowl or Tupperware container and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes so mixture can set up.
  4. If saving for later, store in an airtight container. This mixture can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days.
