Key Lime Pie Parfaits – For breakfast or a healthy dessert!

If you’re stuck in a rut eating the same old oatmeal, yogurt, or eggs for breakfast… shake things up with this ridiculously delicious Key Lime Pie Parfait. It’s creamy, tart, and full of fiber and nutrients that will keep you satisfied all morning long. These parfaits make a yummy cool summer treat! 

The secret to this recipe is the avocado!

That’s what gives it a rich and creamy texture that is soooo decadent. If you’re worried about the amount of fat in an an avocado, don’t be! Avocados are packed with healthy fats that have been shown to protect the heart and are also a good source of fiber and fat-soluble nutrients such as Vitamin E. You see, you need to eat fat in order to absorb all of the healthy goodness and antioxidants from the avocado, so it’s all good! 

To get started, you’ll just need a blender and a few simple ingredients… 

Add one peeled and pitted avocado, ¼ cup of culinary coconut milk, a couple tablespoons raw honey, a pinch of salt, and the juice and zest of one lime to your blender. Whip the ingredients until well blended and creamy…

I like to serve this key lime pie mousse with crunchy granola… but, I don’t bother with buying those pre-made boxes of granola at the store, because they are usually full of GMOs, refined sugar and inflammatory oils. Instead I make my own delicious granola that only takes about 5 minutes to prep for the oven! Get my homemade granola recipe here.

To assemble your parfait, scoop about a quarter cup of granola into a cup and top it with a quarter cup key lime pie mousse. Repeat the granola and mousse layers once more. Enjoy! Mmmm….crunch, crunch, crunch….

  1. What is “culinary” coconut milk? Is it the stuff you drink in a carton, or in a can?

      1. Thank you! I was just going to ask the same question! Does it matter if its lite coconut milk or regular?

  2. Some clarification would be nice on the “culinary coconut milk”. Looks to me like it’s just plain full fat coconut milk, sold in a can – correct?
    Also, an approximation of the amount (even just an estimate) would be helpful on the amount of lime juice used.
    It does look tasty though!!!

  3. OMG this is DELICIOUS! I didn’t measure the ingredients out but it was close. This is a MUST dessert! It took like 2 minutes to make! I wanted to burn my blender carafe inside out to lick it 🙂

  4. I was SO excited when it said ‘key lime pie parfait”!
    And then (GROAN) so disappointed when it said AVOCADO, which makes me sick.

  5. We have peanut, tree nut, and coconut allergies in our family. That really narrows the options down for milks :). Would you suggest just regular cow or goat’s milk? Or is there another milk option I’m not thinking of?

    1. I can’t digest coconut milk, so I was going to use the high protein (pea protein) silk almond milk..

  6. This recipe is so simple and so incredibly yummy, not to mention incredibly healthy. I love the meal prepping idea, to cook once and have a delicious lunch. Yum!

  7. On on the Keto way of eating and would love to know if Stevia could be utilized instead of honey.

  8. Can this be made ahead of time? My mornings are busy and would love to make it the day before

  9. Everyone talks about substituting stevia for the sweeteners – which I’ve tried, but it just doesn’t cut it for me. How about Xylitol – under the name of Xyla? I’ve been using that for years to decrease my sugar, and I like it. Vani, do you have any information out on that yet? Note: not TOO much or it works like a laxative.
