This is my favorite time of year. The chill in the air leads to a change in color of the leaves on the trees. I get to pull out my coziest sweaters and pull out the down comforter. Chilly weather and pumpkin recipes go hand in hand, which is why it was so easy to decide what recipe I wanted to make when I was assigned to make something Nicole’s blog, Daily Dish Recipes.

Nicole has lots of delicious pumpkin recipes on her site. I took at look at her recipe index and pulled up the archives to see what she made last October, and nearly all of the recipes had pumpkin in them. Her recipe for Easy Pumpkin Parfaits with Greek Yogurt is the one that caught my attention, though. It’s a healthier option than her Oreo Candy Corn Bark or her chocolate pumpkin parfaits.

The pumpkin yogurt parfait is also healthier than my pumpkin streusel muffins and my crustless pumpkin pie.

Nicole lives in St. Louis and is the mom to FIVE teenagers! Can you imagine the hustle and bustle around her house?! She’s been blogging for 10 years, so when you visit her site, be prepared to spend lots of time drooling over her recipes.

I’ve made a couple of parfait recipes on this blog. My Fluffy Fool Dessert Parfait was very good, but I think this pumpkin yogurt parfait recipe might be my favorite now. It’s creamy, with a perfect pumpkin flavor and awesome fall spices, and the crunchy granola makes it the perfect snack!

Are you ready to make this yummi and healthy pumpkin spice yogurt parfait?

Grab your apron and I’ll meet you in the kitchen!

  1. What a great dessert idea. I make a big batch of yoghurt every week, and apart from using it in my breakfast and frequent batches of frozen yoghurt, I am always looking for new and creative ways to use it. This definitely ticks a few boxes.

    1. I love that you make yogurt part of your breakfast routine! I hope you enjoy this pumpkin yogurt parfait 🙂

  2. What an awesome combo of flavors! I eat Greek yogurt + granola almost every morning…and I love the idea of mixing some Fall flavors in there. Fun!

    1. Thanks, Dave. It’s nice to be able to customize a breakfast for the seasons. I’m already thinking of ways to jazz it up for the Christmas season 🙂

    1. A little healthy now and then helps to balance out the indulgent desserts 🙂 I figured the healthy should be tasty, too! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    1. Thanks so much, Chris! Greek yogurt has been an obsession for me lately. I sub it out for sour cream and use it in almost all of my morning smoothies. LOVE the versatility!

  3. Becca, your photos are gorgeous! This is one of our favorites and we change it up all the time and have fun with it. My crazy teens will eat it even when I healthify it further 😉 They just love all the pumpkin I think.
    Thanks for choosing this recipe!! 🙂 You made it look GORGEOUS!

    1. You’re so sweet, Nicole… thank you! I really did have a great time perusing your recipes. There are SO many I want to try!

  5. 5 stars
    What a great dessert idea for Thanksgiving, Becca! I love that these are so beautifully decadent looking yet still relatively healthy.

    1. I hope I can control myself when eating it this year, Stacy. Last year, I picked all of the marshmallows off and popped them into my mouth before the sweet potato casserole had even been put into the oven 🙂

  6. Hello to every one, it’s in fact a nice for me to pay a quick visit this site,
