This is a recipe for just a really good and fun snack I’ve been loving so very much recently.
Does it need a full-blown article on the internet? Questionable.
Does it deserve a full-blown article on the internet? Absolutely.
I’m a big big fan of pumpkin, cinnamon, and all-things fall. This truly is my favorite time of year (followed closely by winter), and I feel like a whole new person when wearing my turtlenecks, boots, and jackets.
So I want to incorporate the very best things about this time of year into my every day. And if I can add a little fall flare to my snack time, it’s a huge win.
This parfait situation is so good, full of good fall flavors, and just really fun. Anything with the name “swirl” in the name is automatically fun, right? And it really couldn’t be more simple.
You’ll take some plain plant-based yogurt (use your fave, but I’ve been loving the unsweetened cashew stuff from Trader Joe’s), and swirl in some vanilla extract (or vanilla bean paste if you have it for those cute little vanilla specks!). Then set it aside.
In another bowl, mix some pure pumpkin puree with cinnamon, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, cardamom). In the US, you can find pumpkin pie spice already mixed in the spice aisle, but feel free to skip it and use more cinnamon. Similar vibe and way easier for a simple snack like this!
Of course, you could totally just mix all of this (aka the yogurt and the pumpkin mixture) together and save a bowl, but then you wouldn’t have the swirl, and as previously established, swirled food is more fun. That said, you do you!
Then layer it in a cute little glass with granola. I used a store-bought maple granola for the fall vibes, but feel free to use your fave.
A perfect little fall treat in a jar! It’s simple, cute, super fun, and really very delicious. Enjoy, my friend!Print
