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 large avocado, peeled and pitted
- ¼ cup culinary coconut milk, more as needed
- 1 lime, juiced and zested
- 2-3 tablespoons raw honey
- pinch sea salt
- 1 cup granola of choice
- Place all of the ingredients in a blender except the granola and blend until smooth.
- To serve, place ¼ cup granola in a cup and top with ¼ cup key lime pie mousse. Repeat the granola and mousse layers once more. Enjoy!
