Pumpkin Parfait #breakfastofchampions

As the school year sets into full swing, I choose my go-to breakfast. It takes a little effort but I make it sunday night and I’m set for a full week! This combination of pumpkin, walnuts, cinnamon, blueberries and yogurt contains appetiteĀ suppressants, antioxidants, omega-3, and beta-carotene. So in a nutshell, it’s a superfood parfait.

Ingredients for Pumpkin Mix:

1 container of Activia low-fat vanilla (or plain) yogurt

1/4 cup of honey

2 tsp of pumpkin spice [I like mine spicy]

1 container or pure pumpkin puree

______________________

Ingredients for Walnut Crunch:

1/2 cup of chopped walnuts

1/2 tsp of butter

3 pinches of brown sugar

Steps:

  1. Combine all Pumpkin puree ingredients into a container that has a seal or lid.
  2. In a small pan, melt butter and coat 1/2 cup of walnuts. Add brown sugar and mix until caramelized.
  3. Once walnuts are caramelized, remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes.
  4. Add walnuts to pumpkin puree and put container in fridge.

In the mornings I love adding the pumpkin puree to kashi’sĀ cinnamon cereal and topping it with blueberries. I refrain from adding the cereal to the mixture to prevent the cereal from becoming soggy.

Enjoy!
