Not all yogurt parfaits are created equal. In fact, we’ve come to distrust these pretty layered things. While conventional yogurt and granola can be a total sugar bomb and hide chemical ingredient galore, this ultra-clean coconut yogurt parfait from nutritionist, Kelly LeVeque is renewing our faith in the simple, pretty brunch dish.
Layered into one of Lauren Conrad’s The Little Market glasses – all made “for good” by artisan groups around the world – this little recipe is a perfect match for a lazy Sunday morning or even a gathering of girls for bridal showers and the like.
The recipe is dairy-free, gluten-free, protein-rich and high in fiber – and tastes so much better when you take the time to layer it right!
