Parfaits are my favorite go to morning meals. Now, that the weather is about to change and the sun would spread some warmth in the next few days, I decided on a parfait recipe. Mangoes are just occupying the fruit section in the stores. Pineapples are popping out from the center of the fruit shelves. Oranges are almost everywhere. Hence, Tropical Yogurt Vegan Parfait was created. I am extremely sensitive to dairy. However, I love yogurt so for me to find dairy free yogurt with good taste tends to be complicated. I keep comparing the taste of vegan yogurts with the regular yogurts. I am not very fond of coconut yogurts and all almond yogurts are flavored and sugar loaded.
However, I continued my search for a perfect yogurt that would suit my taste buds. Finally, I found almond based vegan plain yogurt from Kite Hill. Now, I am a happy yogurt eater 🙂 . So, I decided to create a parfait with yogurt base and bring out tropical favors to welcome spring. It’s a simple but beautiful breakfast. Easy to assemble and can be made a night before. Just grab it from the refrigerator and enjoy while on your way to work. The flavors are so refreshing that it will help you fight with morning blues or anxieties.
Tropical Yogurt Vegan Parfait has become my comfort food. You can be as creative as you want with this recipe. If you use coconut yogurt, you may garnish it with coconut flakes. Feel free to adjust the sugar measurements as per your palate. Since, I am on low sugar diet, for me the mentioned measurement was perfect. However, sugar quantity will also depend on the sweetness of your fruits. You may add more sugar if desired or simply avoid sugar altogether if you are on a low/no sugar diet mission. If you think your yogurt is too plain fell free to whip some sugar in your yogurt to balance the taste.
The most addicting part of this parfait is the blended mango and pineapple compote. Well, it’s not the real compote but its texture is definitely like one. The thick blended puree of mango and pineapple sweetened with brown sugar is lip-smacking. I am a total fan of this parfait. What about you?
