Ingredients

  • ½ cup pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie mix!
  • 2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk or preferred milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract or 1 teaspoon if using vanilla flavoring
  • 4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice use more or less depending on personal preference
  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • 16 ounces plain or vanilla yogurt
  • 8 ounces pumpkin granola

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and pumpkin pie spice. Whisk until smooth and well combined. Taste test to see if you prefer more maple syrup or pumpkin spice and adjust accordingly.
  • To the bowl, add the chia seeds. Stir together until combined then cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours. You'll need to stir the chia pudding once or twice during the chilling period to keep it from forming any large lumps.
  • Once the pudding has thickened you can assemble your parfaits. In small jars or lidded bowls, layer a few tablespoons of yogurt in the bottom, top with a handful of granola, and another layer of chia pudding. Repeat with yogurt and then finish with granola on top. You should have enough to make 7 parfaits total.
  • Serve immediately or seal the jars and refrigerate for up to 1 week. Note: the granola will soften as it sits so if you'd like your granola crunchy you can store the chia pudding in the refridgerator then assemble the parfaits the morning of.
