You know that Pumpkin Granola I gave you, well you just have to use it to make this Pumpkin Granola Yoghurt Parfait
Vanilla Yoghurt, crisp sweet apple, sweet pumpkin and golden pumpkin granola - is just a match made in heaven and perfect for breakfast, dessert or even a snack.
When I made the granola I just didn't comprehend how amazing it would be in these Pumpkin Granola Yoghurt Parfaits, the combination of all the little bits together in every spoonful is delicious.
It's a great way to use up any pumpkin you have left from the Fall season,
To make the pumpkin puree I like to bake the pumpkin, as I find the flavour is better, you can steam it, but the flavour can become a bit watery.
Using a large knife, I cut the pumpkin in half, scoop out the seeds (save those if you want to roast your own pumpkin seeds), then lay them flesh side down on a parchment lined tray. Bake at 200c/400f for about 45 minutes, a knife should skewer into it easily as this point (and if you push on the skin, it should indent). Allow to cool slightly and then you can add to a blender and puree. Place in small tubs and freeze, that way you have pumpkin on hand for all the delicious Pumpkin recipes right here on Slimming Eats.
Don't worry if you don't have any fresh pumpkin on hand, canned will work fine too, just make sure you select 100% pure pumpkin, which is calorie free, there is another canned variety which is a pumpkin pie filling which is loaded with sugar and other ingredients.
This one here is pretty good:

I like to use cute stemless wine glasses like these to serve the Pumpkin Granola Yoghurt Parfait
But any kind of glass, jar or even a bowl will do the trick.
