Okay I know what you are thinking… pumpkin recipe overload maybe? This is the last one I promise! (Maybe). I have wanted to make this recipe for so long but have just not had the time. There are so many flavors going on here; spice, tart and tangy and super creamy and different textures of soft and crunchy.
This recipe is a little more work than most of my recipes, but I assure it’s so worth it!!! There are a lot of components but you will only require a blender and food processor. And… this recipe is perfect for thanksgiving and Christmas cocktail parties; you can make mini parfaits in cute little glasses and really blow your guests away!
I think by now, you all know it’s no secret that I LOVE pumpkin and pumpkin spice, there is just something so warming and comforting about it. Although i don’t like the cold of fall and winter I do like a lot of the food, so I guess you could say it makes up for it in a way!
They say your favorite season is the one you were born in. Well… I happen to be born on Christmas Day, so should I not LOVE winter? But sadly I do not! My favorite season is summer because I love to be outside in the sun and nature, walking my dog. Maybe it’s because I live in one of the coldest places in Canada.
I’m not going to write much more because I’m currently visiting my sister and new nephew in BC and I want to spend as much time with them as I can.
Enjoy this recipe as much as I did, and be creative!!!
