I wanted to make a delicious, filling, healthy treat for my kids after school. A coconut cream parfait is the perfect treat. It is layered with fresh berries, whipped coconut cream, a secret chocolate sauce and gluten free granola.
First, I layered the fruit cups with sliced strawberries.
Then, I added the blackberries. You can add blueberries instead.
Then, I added some gluten free granola. I used Purely Elizabeth. It is gluten free, vegan and free of refined sugars.
Then, topped with coconut whipped cream. I did not add sweetener so it looks a bit thicker in the picture below, but adding sweetener makes it light and pillowy.
Then, add a sprinkle of granola, and more berries. Putting the strawberries around the sides makes a lovely presentation.
Now for the secret chocolate sauce. I top it use Barlean’s Essential Woman’s chocolate mint swirl. It is full of healthy omega-3 oils and sweetened with xylitol. It is also vegan.
For the final touch, place a whole strawberry on top! Now that is basically it! A delicious vegan, gluten free coconut cream parfait. This is perfect for Easter or any special event!
If you are grain free, you can use a grain free granola. My family loved these healthy after school snacks and I know you will too!
