Paired with crunchy granola and fresh fruit, this yogurt parfait is the perfect start to any day!

Homemade Coconut Cashew Yogurt Parfait [Vegan]

This Recipe is :



For the Yogurt:

  • 1 cup raw cashews, soaked in filtered water 2-4 hours
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk, cold (or any plant-based milk)
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1/8 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon shredded coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoons probiotic powder, optional (or open one probiotic capsule)

For the Parfait Layers:

  • 1/4- 1/2 cup granola
  • 1/4-1/2 cup pomegranate seeds

For the Topping:

  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Blackberries


  1. Drain and rinse cashews. Discard water. Place first seven ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth. It should be thick like yogurt. If it’s too thick, you can add a bit more milk.
  2. Layer each ingredient into your favorite glass. You can enjoy immediately, or let it sit in the fridge for a bit.
