Healthy Meals – Pumpkin Yogurt Parfait

Image

Another great and easy breakfast item that can be prepared ahead of time! I have not tried this yet so I will edit the post later this week after I try it. I’m looking forward to it, and it probably has a lot less sugar than typical fruit or flavored yogurt from the store.

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tsp. maple syrup
  • 1 cup nonfat plain yogurt (I used Chobani plain Greek yogurt – this may give it less of a sweet taste since it’s Greek yogurt, not regular)
  • 2 tablespoons granola
  • 1 tablespoon raisins
  • 2 tsp. chopped cashews (I used whole cashews and a crab mallet to crush them in a baggie)

Directions:

Stir the yogurt and pumpkin puree together, then add pumpkin pie spice and maple syrup. Put half the yogurt mixture in a glass and layer the granola, raisins, and cashews on top. Next, add rest of yogurt and top with crunchy granola mix. Enjoy! *If making ahead of time, do not add granola mixture until the morning you plan to eat it.*
