Perfect Fit Pumpkin Spice Parfait

As mentioned in a previous post, I have been following the Tone it Up nutrition plan for a while now, and one of the things I love about it is that every week or so they share a new recipe with us to try! The women behind Tone it Up (Karena and Katrina) have developed their own plant-based protein powder called Perfect Fit Protein that I have been trying out, and I think it’s a winner. I mean, considering it is a protein powder, it’s actually quite good!
One of the recipes they shared the other day is for a pumpkin spice parfait that I was, of course, dying to try the moment I saw the recipe. It turned out very well, although I wasn’t a huge fan of the dates. I think it is going to either have to be a flavor I will need to get used to or just not use in future recipes…
I made my parfaits with the Perfect Fit protein powder and they were so filling I almost couldn’t finish it- almost.

The recipe is from ToneItUp.com! I hope you try it and enjoy it as much as I did.

Pumpkin Spice Parfait

Makes 2 servings ~ share with a girlfriend or save some for later!

Ingredients
1 large banana, sliced on a plate
Sprinkle of healthy granola + 1 Tbs of pumpkin seeds ~ we made the ‘Great Start Granola’ from your Tone It Up Nutrition Plan

Pumpkin Layer
1 cup Pumpkin Purée
4 pitted dates
Splash of almond milk
1 tsp of cinnamon
2 shakes of pumpkin spice (or to taste)
Chocolate or Vanilla Perfect Fit Protein ~ optional

Yogurt Layer
1 cup Greek or Almond yogurt (almond yogurt is dairy-free)
1/2 tsp of Pumpkin Spice  (or to taste)
1 Tbs of unsweetened coconut flakes ~optional

Directions
Start by soaking pitted dates in warm water for a few minutes to soften. Next, add soft dates to a food processor or blender and pulse into a paste. Add a splash of almond milk if needed to help it blend if it’s too thick. (I had to add a splash)  Once smooth, add your pumpkin purée, Perfect Fit (optional) cinnamon and a shake or two of pumpkin spice and blend again. Add another splash of almond milk if needed, especially if you add protein :)
In a separate bowl, mix yogurt, pumpkin spice and coconut flakes (optional) until well incorporated.  Sprinkle your bananas with cinnamon on your plate before dropping into parfait.
To assemble parfait: Layer banana slices, pumpkin spice mixture and yogurt in a mason jar and top with your granola.  Tone It Up© Recipe
