If you try to avoid dairy, eating yogurt parfaits doesn’t have to be a thing of the past. This quick, easy, gluten and dairy-free parfait is easy to make and so tasty. The crunchy part of the parfait is made using almonds instead of granola that offer a great source of anti-inflammatory properties and heart-healthy fats. The plain and unflavored coconut (or you can also use almond) yogurt are rich in probiotics that are good for your digestive and immune systems. And last but not least, the tiny but powerful berries are loaded with antioxidants.
If trying other dairy-free recipes is on your list of to-do’s, you’ll love our Dairy-Free Egg Nog and these Dairy-Free Ice Cream Sandwiches. If you’re wondering if you should steer clear of dairy, here are more reasons why.
