Pumpkin Parfaits

I've re-purposed my Coconut Pumpkin Pie Milkshake (recipe below) to make parfaits! The milkshake is thick enough to create perfect layers. I used unsweetened vanilla coconut yogurt and toasted coconut flakes and walnuts. So simple and feels like a decadent dessert!

I toasted the coconut flakes and walnuts at 350 F for 5 minutes. Next time, I'm going to add a crumbled graham cracker layer :)

Coconut Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

I can't believe it's already fall, although it's still quite hot here in Florida! This milkshake is helping me get into fall spirit though. It truly does taste like pumpkin pie in a glass!

Coconut Pumpkin Pie Milkshake


  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 Tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp/dash of pumpkin pie spice
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • Sweetener of choice-- I used 1 tsp maple syrup


Simply blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. I topped mine with coconut flakes and pumpkin pie spice. Hope you enjoy!
