pumpkin and granola parfaits in glasses

Granola Pumpkin Parfait

Spiced pumpkin puree is combined with cream cheese and low-fat whipped topping, then layered with vanilla Greek yogurt and nut-studded granola to create a taste sensation in contrasting color and texture. These parfaits can be put together at mealtime or made ahead and chilled for a few hours.
