Gluten free, Dairy free and almost sugar free pumpkin parfaits that are legit delish.

Just look at the layers of loveliness
Just a dollop of Tru Whip'll do ya
Coincidence with the lines and colors matching our newly covered Missoni-esque chairs in the background? No, my friend


So I've been on and off of this really boring and annoying diet which is dairy/gluten/soy/sugar free and for the most part I avoid those things unless there's something I simply cannot pass up that contains those ingredients, or its a weekend dinner date with my hubs, etc.  I find it fun and challenging to look at super decadent recipes and make them healthier or tweak them to meet my crazy diet standards at the time.  I actually probably posted about this recipe at this time last year.  So the real recipe is here and here's my version below, a lighter happier parfait.  Enjoy!

  • 1/2 (15-oz) can organic pumpkin
  • 2 packets of stevia
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 box sugar free vanilla pudding
  • 1 1/2cups almond milk
  • 1/2 cup plain soy, greek or goat's milk yogurt
  • 1/2 cup homemade or favorite granola
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tub of Tru Whip  
  •  4 (6- to 8-oz) glasses
  • Whisk pudding mix, almond milk and yogurt according to directions.  (I use a kitchenaid stand mixer). Allow to chill 5 minutes. Whisk together with pumpkin, stevia, spices, and salt in a large bowl.
  • Spoon about 1/4 cup pumpkin mixture into bottom of each glass, then sprinkle with 1-2 tablespoons of granola and top with about 2 Tbsp Tru Whip. Repeat layers once, ending with cream.
  • Chill until set, at least 2 hours.
