Pumpkin Greek Yogurt + Granola Parfait

In case you haven't walked outside or gotten anywhere near social media in the past two weeks, IT'S FALL Y'ALL (#itsfallyall has been a trending hashtag)!! And it's been quite a big deal, as it rightfully should be. Who doesn't just love this time of the year - it's the perfect temperature, you can drink apple cider out of a cute little mug, and pumpkin-flavored everything is everywhere!! I'm pretty darn happy about all of it! So I'm sharing our first pumpkin-flavored recipe of the year!

This is super easy to throw together and makes a tasty afternoon treat or healthy dessert! I may have to throw some dark chocolate shavings on top to dessert-ify this bad boy, though! What can I say, I love chocolate! Either way, this is yummy. If you enjoy yogurt + granola for breakfast, then put a little pep in your step with pumpkin!

Pumpkin has some AWESOME health benefits (look out for a future blog post) and I've added in some ground flax for some super nutrition. If you don't do dairy, there are some awesome soy and coconut milk yogurts out there. Oh and this pumpkin parfait is PERFECT with our original goin' nuts granola

Pumpkin Greek Yogurt + Granola Parfait

Grab it!
1 cup (or single serving container) vanilla greek yogurt
4 heaping tbsp organic pumpkin
spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice OR pumpkin pie spice
1-3 tsp honey, for desired sweetness
2 tsp ground flax (it won't change the flavor .. just adds some great nutritional benefits)
1/2 cup Goin' Nuts granola

Stir it! Layer it!
1. Combine all ingredients except for the granola. For your spices, you can use pumpkin pie spice OR use a combo of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice. Don't have all of the spices? Just use whatever combo of these spices are in your pantry - it'll still be delicious, I promise!
2. Layer pumpkin yogurt with granola in a bowl or container (glass containers are awesome because then you can see the deliciousness you just created!).
3. Enjoy, my loves!

You can buy our fresh + healthy, organic-based granola here
