Yogurt parfaits can be healthy, but they can also be packed with added sugar.
Depending on the recipe, some parfaits are loaded with sugar thanks to using sweetened yogurt, high sugar granola, and concentrated jams rather than fresh fruit.
But that doesn’t mean a healthy yogurt parfait recipe isn’t possible. Here are the keys to making your recipe a healthy and filling breakfast:
For this recipe we’re actually skipping the fruit altogether and using vitamin A-rich pumpkin puree instead.
You sure can!
While there are natural sugars in the yogurt and pumpkin, you can control how sweet your yogurt parfait is by using a mix of nuts and seeds instead of a granola or breakfast cereal.
Of course, you could also use a lower sugar cereal, like Original Puffins, too.
Still have more pumpkin puree leftover? Here are some healthy ways to use up your leftover pumpkin puree:
Yes, you can freeze pumpkin puree. Simply place it in a freezer-safe container (I like using these herb freezing trays) and store for up to 4 to 5 months.
It can be helpful to save the puree in measured amounts, such as 2 tablespoons or ¼ cup. This way you won’t have to thaw it all out at once.
