Clean eating, clean desert, summer, 20 minutes, easy recipe, Yummy healthy, Sara Stakeley,,

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

  • 1 can full fat coconut milk (refrigerated overnight)
  • 1 1/2 cup raw pecans
  • 2 T organic maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp ground vanilla beans
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup blackberries
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a bowl, mix the pecans, maple syrup and salt. Make sure everything is coated well.
  • Spread the nuts onto a lined baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, stopping halfway through to shake the pan. Let the nuts cool.
  • Make sure your unopened can of coconut milk has been chilling overnight in the fridge. Open the can and scoop out the fatty white part. Put it in a mixing bowl with the vanilla. Using a whipping attachment, whip the coconut into a cream. This should take a few minutes.
  • Once the coconut milk is whipped into a cream, you are ready to assemble the parfaits.
  • I started with a layer of cream, then a layer of nuts , more cream, and top it with fruit. You can really assemble them any way you like. I also think these would be just as good without the the nuts.
These parfaits will probably keep 4 days in the fridge. More if you keep the fruit and cream separate until you are ready to eat them. Enjoy!
