Pumpkin Pie Yogurt_-2

So… I have written about coming across my late grandma’s recipes and I finally had the opportunity to re-create one of the recipes, Applesauce Drop Cookies. There is another recipe that struck my interest, Orange-Pumpkin Pudding. Grandma clipped the recipe out of Better Homes & Gardens in October of 1968. The pudding consisted of beaten eggs, canned pumpkin, evaporated milk, grated orange peel, and a few spices. Sounds yummy, but not my style.

This Pumpkin Pie Yogurt Parfait recipe I found in Martha Stewart Magazine offers the same rich pumpkin-y flavor that Grandma got out of the pudding, and it’s healthier… however, just as sweet.

Martha Stewart. That chick is a genius. Obviously. She’s the only one who can think up something this simple & amazing. I did alter her recipe slightly to satisfy my own needs and taste, but still – she’s got it going on.

berry {coconut milk} yogurt parfait

Breakfast: My favorite meal of the day.
{coconut milk} Yogurt Parfait: One of my favorite breakfast dishes.
This dish made up of sweet, creamy yogurt, ripe berries, rich walnuts, and crunchy coconut satisfies my taste buds and my hunger. (every time)
I have made this dish hundreds of times over the last few years, serving it in fancy dishware which makes it feel like a special treat.
A few years ago, while on vacation with one of my girlfriends, we served ourselves a version of this parfait in martini glasses. Faaaaaancy. :)
