*Pumpkin Yogurt Topping:

To make the pumpkin yogurt topping, mix ½cup unsweetened vanilla coconut milk yogurt with ½ cup pumpkin purée. Add honey or pure maplesyrup to taste if you prefer a sweeter flavor. 


Garnish with crushed pecans or walnuts. If you prefer, you can use vanilla yogurt instead of pumpkin flavored, and if you are not dairy intolerant, Greek yogurt is delicious, too!
