Healthy Candy Corn Parfaits

With all the candy and treats floating around the month of October, it's nice to have a healhty snack that is still tasty and Halloween themed! Look no further, than the Healthy Candy Corn Parfaits recipe below. 

    (I got those little serving tumblers in a pack from Party City)

- Banana
- Butternut squash
- Organic maple syrup
- Dairy free vanilla yogurt, or plain if your kids like that. (Trader Joe's has cultured cocont milk, soy yogurt, and goat's milk yogurt.)

Step 1:
- Bake your butternut squash in the oven. There's some different ways to do this. I put the oven at 350 degrees, slice the butternut squash in half, scoop the seeds out, and then put both halves open side down in about an inch of water in a baking dish. Bake it for about an hour, until it's tender.

In the meantime, you can puree your bananas in the blender or food processor.

Step 2:
- Rinse out/wash the blender or food processor so you can also puree your butternut squash. Mix in some maple syrup to the butternut squash puree to give it some extra sweetness. You don't need to use a lot.

Step 3:
- Put the ingredients in the tumblers or whatever cups you have in candy corn order. Yogurt, butternut squash, then banana puree. Cover and refrigerate for a little while before serving.
