Pumpkin Breakfast Parfait

October 26, 2014

Author Notes: I stole this idea from a friend of mine who brought pumpkin and yogurt parfaits to breakfast meetings in the fall. It's a perfect start to a brisk fall or winter day, with sweet pumpkin, warm spices, and tangy yogurt.fiveandspice

Serves: 1


  • 1/2 cup pumpkin purée (I use canned)
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup, plus more to taste
  • 2 pinches ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground ginger
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt (or vanilla if you prefer)
  • Granola for sprinkling on top, if desired
In This Recipe


  1. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the pumpkin, maple syrup, and spices. Taste and add a little more maple syrup if you want.
  2. In a bowl or glass, make alternating layers of the pumpkin-spice mix and the yogurt until you've used them up. Then, sprinkle a little granola on top if you want a touch of crunch. Serve.
