Choose your glass. Show off the layers in tall slender glasses, or adapt pint or half-pint jars for a fun and practical breakfast on-the-go style. (For making ingredients from scratch, see links in notes or blog post.)
Start with a few tablespoons of vegan yogurt, in the bottom of your glass or jar. Add a couple tablespoons of fruit sauce (less if using jam), being careful that at least the outer edges of the yogurt are covered (so you can see the berry sauce layer later).
Sprinkle in a layer of granola and then add a variety of berries and cut up fruit on top of that.
Starting with yogurt again, repeat the layers until your glass or jar is full! Enjoy right away if you prefer crunchy granola, or if you don’t mind softened granola, put a lid on it and take it with you for later!
Top with vegan whipped cream and a berry or two for garnish right before serving! Enjoy!
If you want to make your ingredients from scratch, check out these links:
Vegan Yogurt – making your own vegan soy yogurt is impossibly easy. It literally requires two ingredients and the switch of an instant pot. It is also completely sugar free so I recommend swirling in a dash of vanilla and a bit of agave nectar before using it in these parfaits. Silk is my favorite yogurt brand if I’m buying.
Granola – your favorite vegan granola works great here too, but this recipe is hands-down my all-time favorite.
Simple Berry Sauce – I highly recommend this easy and delicious sauce. It is also refined sugar-free, but it can be replaced with fruit jam in a pinch! (This sauce needs to be made ahead and chilled for several hours before adding the the parfaits.)
Vegan Coconut Whip Cream – I’ll be honest here – I often end up buying the quick squirt vegan coconut-whip topping. However, I love making my own too.
Fruit – fresh, frozen, or canned fruit ingredients all work great. Berries, peaches, banana, mandarin oranges etc. Dice or slice larger fruit for a better tasting experience!
