This healthy chocolaty vegan yogurt parfait is a great afternoon pick-me-up snack that takes only one bowl and less than 5 minutes to make! Besides its simplicity, you’ll enjoy the perfect creaminess combined with fresh flavour that’ll lift you up!
Tips on my chocolaty vegan yogurt parfait:
- Use any plant-based yogurt you like, i.e. oat, hemp, almond, cashew, pea and even flax! Or make your own oat yogurt.
- Coconut flour can be substituted with any nut flour or nut/seed-based protein powder.
- To spice things up, you can make layers of yogurt mix, berries and/or applesauce.
- If you’re not on Candida diet, use any sweetener you like such as agave, maple, coconut nectar or sugar, date paste.
- You can easily take it on the go as well – prepare it when you can and store in sealed Mason jar or a container. Grab it from fridge and enjoy your afternoon snack wherever you happen to be!
- Finally, I also like to add a teaspoon of baobab or rosehip powder for vitamin C. However, should you top the parfait with some wild berry, pomegranate or lemon juice, you’d have it covered.
- You absolutely don’t need to use clove and nutmeg if you don’t like them. Or add a bit less of them. I included those spices for their anti-fungal properties and because I love the taste!
What makes this vegan yogurt parfait so perfect as a snack is that it’s:
