Ok, back to Pumpkin. ( sorry, I had to share)
On Friday night I went to the grocery store because I decided I needed to make SOMETHING with pumpkin this weekend. Canned pumpkin is always associated with Pumpkin Pie, and perhaps junk food. Canned Pumpkin is a great item to keep in your pantry. It is extremely healthy, low in fat AND is much easier to deal with then an actual pumpkin:)
Making a Pumpkin Yogurt Parfait is deliciously easy!
2 cups of plain yogurt or plain Greek yogurt
1/2 can of pumpkin
2 teaspoons of honey
dash of cinnamon
1/2 cup of granola or gluten-free ginger snap cookies ( or something else comparable)
Mix all the ingredients together except the granola and bananas. After the yogurt mixture is done, layer the ingredients in a glass. Yogurt, Banana and granola. Your parfait should have 2 layers.
I added a little honey drizzle on top of this parfait.
I love Saturday mornings with my family!
