Let’s talk about how amazing this little parfait treat is, k?

OMG.

I’m not one to brag about my recipes but come ON.

Can you not dive right into this?

Like, do you not want to face plant head first into this jar of yumminess?

Thought so.

Dairy-free desserts never looked so good.

I could barely take pictures of this recipe without licking my fingers clean.

The coconut yogurt alone is enough to lure me in.

And the cherries?

O the cherries.

Why do I not use more cherries?

This made me feel like a little kid drinking a Shirley Temple.

This is like the treat that saves.

Saves what?

Everything.

Trust me. You’ll get it once you make it.

And when you do, leave me a comment because you’ll wanna have it for breakfast or a snack or dessert every.single.gosh.darn. day.

Yes, you will.

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo

  1. Sounds delicious! I live in the Deep South, where good wholesome, organic foods are not available. Most fruits and veggies are on the verge of rotten by the time they hit the shelves, so this is doable for me. PS – I’d LOVE to win the Flora giveaway. Since moving here, my autoimmune disorder has spiraled out of control.

  2. I’ve been playing around all summer with different combos in my yogurt parfaits. This looks scrumptious. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Looks absolutely fantastic. I LOVE pumpkin seeds and often snack on them when I feel a bit peckish. I think I might try this but leave out the extra honey/maple syrup and see how it tastes. Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

  4. Oh my goodness!
    I’m currently on a diet and Ive been soda free for the last 3 months. Ive been looking for delicious dessert ideas to keep me up with my diet and not ruining the hard work! This recipe looks yummy and easy to make. I havent tried pumpkin seeds yet! Excited to make this at home 🙂

  5. Yum! I’m always looks for easy breakfast recipes I can make ahead and grab in the morning on my way to work! I am going to try this and add goji berries 🙂

  6. This looks wonderful! Great, fun breakfast, I’m thinking. Only problem is that where I live, and I don’t often get to the city, coconut yogurt isn’t available (along with a long list of other ingredients that I need for clean eating). Is there a source for the culture so I could try making my own? I make my own blender coconut milk that works fine for most recipes, but I’d like to try making my own yogurt… then I could make this!
