To make Blueberry-Orange Parfaits, mix together 14 ounces of reduced-fat plain Greek yogurt, 1 1/2 tablespoons of turbinado sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of grated orange rind. Layer the yogurt in single serving-size glasses with 2 cups of fresh blueberries and 2 cups of orange sections. Top the parfaits with 1/4 cup of wheat germ.

Make Pumpkin Pie Pudding by adding 2 tablespoons of sugar and 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to a saucepan and whisking together 1 3/4 cups of low-fat milk and 1 large egg in a separate container. Heat the saucepan at medium, and slowly stir the milk and egg mixture into the sugar mixture. Bring everything to a boil for one minute, and remove the pan from the heat. In a bowl, stir together 1/2 cup of canned unsweetened pumpkin, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg and 1/8 teaspoon of salt. Add the pumpkin mixture into the milk mixture, and heat on low for three minutes.

Roast 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts, 2 tablespoons of sugar and a dash of salt in a skillet on low for three minutes. Whip 1/4 cup of heavy cream into peaks. Spoon the pudding into serving dishes, and top with the whipped cream and nuts.
