Tasty Tuesday // Pineapple and Coconut Cream Parfait

RAW vegan pineapple & coconut cream partfait Here’s a pineapple & coconut cream parfait to help you cool off as the weather heats up! Spring is full of bright colors, blooming flowers, and fresh fruit coming back into season. So I wanted to make a refreshing treat that embodied the spring season. This parfait is easy to make and ready in minutes!

I always keep my fridge stocked with frozen fruit for smoothies, breakfast bowls, parfaits, and banana ice cream. This time I blended frozen pineapple together with a fresh banana in my food processor. Then I layered it with a simple 3-ingredient coconut cream made from: coconut cream, maple syrup, and vanilla.

This parfait reminds me of days spent lazying around on the beach with a coconut in one hand and fresh fruit in the other. It’s tropical, refreshing, and light not to mention incredibly healthy, raw, vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free.

I have had a major case of wanderlust lately and this treat transports me to the beach in an instant. I spent part of last year traveling abroad in Southeast Asia where eating whole, naturally grown foods was super easy. Especially on the beach in the Philippines, I would eat bowls of fresh fruit daily. So you could say my fruit obsession started then.

If you’ve never had coconut cream before, you can buy it from Trader Joe’s or a healthy food store or you can make your own by refrigerating a can of coconut milk overnight.
