Superfood Autumn Perfect Parfait!

Thank you for stopping by little island studios, please subscribe by email to follow along in family fun!

Today's post is sponsored by Stonyfield Organic Yogurt & Nature's Path!

Have I mentioned I completely love autumn?!  I am completely in love with everything about autumn - windy, chilly weather, pumpkin everything, hot cocoa, hot apple cider, scarves, boots - 
simply everything and autumn desserts are the best!

It sounds so eloquent and perhaps a bit complicated, but in fact, a parfait is one of the simplest dishes to make.  A parfait is perfect for kids who want to help out in the kitchen.  A parfait is a perfect dessert, snack or the yummiest breakfast - all-in-one!  Change out the ingredients according to what is in season and what's in your cupboards.  This is one of the most delicious parfaits we have made and it is autumn bliss - perfect for your next autumn picnic!

Ingredients:

Stonyfield Yogurt - plain or vanilla
Nature's Path Pumpkin Flax Granola
Nature's Path Qi'a - Cranberry Vanilla (the apple is amazing too)
Korintje Cinnamon - we use Frontier Coop
Pumpkin Puree
Pecans
Apples
Mini Chocolate Chips (we use Enjoy Life Foods - gluten free & non-GMO)

Mix one cup of Stonyfield yogurt with half-cup of pumpkin puree, add two teaspoons of Korintje cinnamon and stir well.
Spoon thick layer into your dish.
Add a layer of Nature's Path granola.
Add a layer of chopped apples (chop very small)
Add layer of pecans - just sprinkle a thin layer of finely chopped pecans
Add another layer of the yogurt mixture
Sprinkle generously Nature's Path Qi'a Cranberry Vanilla
Optional: add just a few mini chocolate chips on the top!


Make these for your next picnic.  If you don't have time to drive somewhere, grab a blanket and head outside to your front lawn and breathe the fresh air! 
Happy autumn, lovelies!

Qi’a, like all Nature's Path products is certified organic and Non-GMO Project Verified

My Notes:

I use Frontier Co-op Cinnamon, organic, fair trade, non-GMO, non-irradiated and non-ETO and absolutely amazing! 

I am happily a brand ambassador for Stonyfield. I love their passion, vision and they fight to label GMOs.

Nature's Path is a brand I already respect, as well and have in my cart weekly - the Qi'a is one of our go-to healthy breakfast favorites.  I try to have their Pumpkin waffles in my freezer at all time for mornings when there is just not enough coffee and the kids get a "fast" breakfast! 

Enjoy Life Chocolate is excellent for moms avoiding gluten and other allergens and they are Project Verified Non-GMO!  

I look for Organic, Fair Trade and / or Non-GMO Verified on everything I buy for my family!

FOOD MATTERS! 


If you follow me on Instagram you already know we eat Stonyfield and Nature's Path foods weekly!  I buy whether I am sponsored or not.
