I was buying these breakfast parfaits at Publix and decided to make my own. This recipe is for a 6 ounce serving size of yogurt but I am not opposed to buying a larger container and making a large container of pumpkin spice yogurt. It’s delicious and so easy to make.
1 6 ounce container of vanilla yogurt (I used fat free but feel free to use Greek, just use vanilla flavor
1 heaping Tablespoon of puréed pumpkin (canned packed pumpkin)
1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin spice (feel free to add more if you wish)
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1 small apple, diced in bite size pieces
3 small ginger snaps or cinnamon graham cookies, or granola (Publix uses cinnamon cookies), crushed
Open yogurt and add pumpkin, pumpkin spice and cinnamon. Stir to combine. Put in your favorite bowl. Top with apples and crushed cookies or granola. The yogurt alone is delicious on its own. Adding the apples and cinnamon takes it over the top. Enjoy!
I was given Barleans Greens Chocolate Silk Powder to create a recipe #Choctoberfest2017. Barleans makes healthy and nutritious products that are delicious. This Perk Me Up Smoothie has antioxidants from fruits and vegetables from the Barleans and protein from the Greek yogurt I used. This is one healthy coffee smoothie.
Coffee Ice Cubes, I froze one cup of coffee in an ice cube tray the night before
1 8 ounce plain or vanilla Greek or regular yogurt
1 scoop of Barleans Green Chocolate Silk Powder
1/4 – 1/2 cup whole, low fat, almond, soy, coffee creamer, whatever you prefer
Strawberry for garnish, optional
Place ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. You may add more liquid if your smoothie is too thick. This is my new replacement meal in the morning. It has everything, coffee, antioxidants from fruit and vegetables, chocolate and protein. It was my pleasure to work with Barleans again.
