These last couple of days I have been obsessed with having parfait for breakfast. It is such a simple, yet stunning dish, and this particular recipe contains a lot of plant-based protein as well which works wonders after my morning workout. I still cannot seem to find a vegan yogurt out there that is high in protein and does not contain added sugars I decided to make my own using silken tofu as my base. Do not be scared though, I promise it does not taste like tofu.
Traditionally parfait is a cold dessert made with layers of either ice-cream or whipped cream and fruit, but it can be made a more suitable breakfast by adding in a little bit of homemade sugar-free granola and yogurt instead of cream. I have also written a recipe for the more classic dessert parfait that is higher in fat and contains coconut cream, strawberry flaxseed jam and hazelnut granola, and I will post the recipe within the next couple of days.
- 150g silken tofu (preferably organic)
- 1/2 banana
- 2 tsp vanilla essence
- 1-2 tsp cinnamon
- Blueberry Flaxseed Jam (you can use a different berry if you wish)
- Homemade Hazelnut Granola
