Strawberry Peach Paleo Parfait

Crunchy, creamy, and fruity layers come together in this quick and easy paleo dessert. Loaded with nutritious ingredients, this dessert also makes a good breakfast. For the coconut cream, skim the thick layer off the top of a can of full-fat coconut milk that has been refrigerated overnight. There may be leftover ingredients that don’t fit in the jar, which can be stored in the refrigerator and used for a parfait the next day.

Ingredients

1/2 cup almonds
1/4 cup pepitas
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
2 tbsp sunflower seeds, shelled
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
2 tbsp honey
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups coconut cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 peach, pitted and diced
1 cup strawberries, diced, divided
2 tbsp almond butter

Instructions

1. Place the almonds, pepitas, coconut flakes and sunflower seeds into a blender and pulse to break the mixture into smaller pieces. Transfer to a pan and cook on low heat, stirring in the coconut oil, honey, and salt, until the mixture is golden brown. Remove from heat and set aside.

2. Add the coconut cream and vanilla to a blender and blend to combine. Remove half of the cream and set aside. Add 1/2 cup strawberries into the blender with the remaining coconut cream and blend to form a strawberry cream layer.

3. To assemble place some of the nut mixture into the bottom of a jar or cup. Add a thin layer of diced fruit, followed by a layer of coconut cream. Add a thin layer of almond butter, followed by a layer of strawberry cream. Continue layering the nut mixture, diced fruit, and coconut cream mixture until the top of the dish is reached. Serve immediately.
