Yogurt parfaits typically made with regular or Greek yogurt don’t fit the paleo lifestyle. However, because we live in an exciting time in the era of food production, there are now many products in the market that are paleo-friendly including non-dairy yogurts. Use a coconut yogurt as your base, along with this exciting paleo granola, and a mix of your favorite fruit to create a delicious snack or breakfast option.
We know you'll love this macro-balanced recipe, prepared with specific ingredients to bring you a deliciously deadly paleo-approved yogurt parfait. With a healthy dose of fat from the yogurt and granola, mixed with some carbohydrates from the fresh fruit, and some protein from the nuts, I couldn’t be more excited to share this recipe with you. This recipe is also dairy-free, and vegan.
Since there are many non-dairy yogurt options out there currently, feel free to pick the one you enjoy the most. However, for taste and texture purposes I chose to use So Delicious plain coconut yogurt. This option has the lowest amount of added sugar while still maintaining a decent flavor.
The granola we use in this recipe is a separate recipe of its own I developed for you. If you happen to find a store-bought paleo granola, feel free to use that instead, but note the macronutrients will vary from this recipe.
There are now many plant-based yogurts in the market. Pick your favorite and create your own paleo parfait recipe!
If you’d like to make 8 or 12 servings, simply multiply the quantities by 2x or 3x respectively.
This recipe is incredibly simple to make, as it only calls for 4 ingredients, so let’s get to it.
