Strawberry Parfait [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

This strawberry parfait is like a single serving of strawberry shortcake deconstructed into its fruity, creamy and crunchy elements and layered on top of each other into a beautiful, secretly healthy dessert or breakfast.

Strawberry Parfait [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Creamy layer:

  • ½ cup plain soy yogurt (or plant-based yogurt of choice)
  • 1 teaspoon xylitol (or sweetener of choice)
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

Strawberry layer:

  • 2-4 strawberries, chopped

Crunchy layer:

  • 3 tablespoons old-fashioned oats (use gluten-free if desired)
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter (or other nut or seed butter)
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon xylitol (or sweetener of choice)
  • optional: ¼ teaspoon guarana powder
  • Mix the yogurt with xylitol or other sweetener and vanilla, spoon half of it in a tall glass (mine was about 1 cup in volume).
  • Add the chopped strawberries on the yogurt layer.
  • Combine oats, almond butter, vanilla and xylitol. Add guarana in case you need an extra energy kick this morning.
  • Put the crumbly mixture on top of strawberries. Cover with the rest of yogurt mixture and decorate with any leftover strawberries or oats.
  • Enjoy!

Xylitol is toxic to dogs, if you have a dog, make sure he doesn't come into contact with this parfait or use a different sweetener.
