It’s fall, and I am sure by now all of yinz have seen our beloved pumpkin squash hit the markets. We have everything from pumpkin spiced lattes, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bread, even pumpkin beer. With all the pumpkins around the area at this time of year, I figured that I would post a fun and festive fall recipe for all of you. This recipe made it’s original debut on Primalburgher.com, but it is worth an encore if I do say so myself 😉 Today’s blog post is dedicated to eating smart while still savoring a treat in our healthy life. Check out my recipe below for my Primal Pumpkin Parfait!
Primal Pumpkin Parfait
1 Cup Canned Pumpkin (I use the Organic Farmers Market Brand)
1/3 Cup Coconut Milk(I use the Organic Thai Kitchen Brand)
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1-2 tsp Organic Raw Honey
Chopped walnuts (optional)
Directions: Place coconut milk can in your refrigerator overnight to make a thick, coconut pudding. See my YouTube video here for more information. Once the coconut pudding is ready to go, you’re in for the final few steps. Take your canned pumpkin and mix in the cloves, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice in a small mixing bowl. Layer 1/2 cup of the pumpkin mix into a parfait cup. Then, layer 1/3 cup of the coconut pudding on top of the pumpkin. Layer the final 1/2 of pumpkin on top of the coconut pudding. Add some chopped walnuts if you desire and drizzle the honey on top of it all. Might I say, this is simply DIVINE! It’s a perfect fall treat that will have you enjoying your life with every bite. GUARANTEED!
Well, that’s about all I have for yinz today. Enjoy your festive fall treat featured above! As always, remember to eat smart, train hard, and enjoy your life!
