Looking for a delicious dessert recipe that’s actually HEALTHY for you? Here ya go!
This Vegan Strawberries and Cream Parfait dessert is:
As you can see from the video, this is pretty simple to make. Add it all to your food processor, give it a couple pulses to combine, then let it set in the fridge. The last step allows the chia seeds to get plump!
Full Fat coconut cream gets it creamy and delicious, we aren’t afraid of healthy fats here, and fresh strawberries add natural sweetness and a beautiful color! If you live in Los Angeles or Orange County try getting your fresh fruit from Milk and Eggs. It’s a new grocery delivery service that gets their produce directly from local farms. I’m LOVING their service and the high quality of their products.
I love making this over the weekend and having it to snack on all week. Sometimes I eat it for breakfast, and other times I enjoy it as a mid day snack or dessert.
You’ll also notice that the only added sweetener is a couple drops of liquid stevia. This makes it the perfect treat for someone following an Anti-Candida or sugar-free diet.

Vegan Strawberries and Cream Parfait Recipe
Strawberries & Cream Chia Parfait
- 2 cups fresh strawberries
- 1 can full-fat coconut cream*
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 6 drops liquid stevia
- Pinch sea salt
- Fresh berries
- Nuts of choice
- Unsweetened shredded coconut
Place the strawberries in a food processor and give them a quick pulse. Now scrape down the sides of the food processor, add the coconut cream, chia seeds, liquid stevia, and sea salt and process until fully combined.
Taste for seasoning and add more stevia if desired.
Pour into a container with a fitted lid and place in the fridge to set for about 2 – 3 hours. This should firm up and get slightly thick.
Eat as is or create a parfait by layering the coconut cream, fresh berries, nuts of choice and shredded coconut into a small serving bowl, jar, or glass. Continue layering several times and enjoy.
*Do not buy the Trader Joe’s brand of coconut cream for this recipe. They have recently reformulated their coconut cream, and although it is organic and great quality, it is too clumpy and watery for this recipe.
