We’ve been in a breakfast rut recently interchanging whole-grain waffles with oatmeal, constantly paired with green healthy smoothies.
It’s early morning. Basic regimens required!
When I do break out of the waffle/oatmeal breakfast rotation, the women are stired!
Okay, they are most stired when it’s pancakes.
But, also quite happy to see a beautiful breakfast parfait like this …
These vegan yogurt parfaits are an especially simple and fast breakfast treat. They look so classy but really rather easy to make!
You can prepare the vegan yogurt the day before, and after that layer your favorite fruits into parfaits the next morning. Put them in unique cups or parfait glasses and the kiddos think it’s extremely elegant. (My wee girl stated “this is the very best day ever“!)
The parfaits begin with Vanilla Cashew Yogurt. When I composed LTEV I used storebought vegan yogurts in numerous of the dishes– the< a href=”https://dreenaburton.com/short-and-sweet-creamed-cheese-brownies-with-salted-dark-chocolate-topping/”rel =”noopener noreferrer “target =”_ blank”title =” Short and Sweet: Creamed Cheese Brownies with Salted Dark Chocolate Garnish “> Creamed Cheese Brownies, the Gluten-Free Chocolate Yogurt Cake, and the Banana Butter Pie (I have GOT to get that dish and pictures up for you)! I went a little overboard offering allergy-friendly and storebought replacements with LTEV, so I decided to consist of a homemade vegan yogurt dish.
This Vanilla Yogurt is not exactly like storebought brands. It’s not cultured with probiotics. What it does deal is the characteristic tang and texture of a plain or vanilla non-dairy yogurt. While it doesn’t consist of the priobiotics, you can quickly include your own probiotics when consuming. (I add probiotics to storebought vegan yogurts all the time!). Simply open a pill of whatever probiotic you are using, and stir it into the yogurt.
Enjoy this vegan yogurt directly or as a topping for granola, baked items, or to layer in breakfast parfaits. Here, they are layered with fresh kiwi, nectarines, and blueberries. Many other fruits might be utilized, and in the fall an apple/pear/orange combination would be incredible! You could likewise layer in homemade granola for an even heartier breakfast (or snack).
The recipe follows. If you have actually currently tried it, please share you how you have actually enjoy it. x Dreena
Vanilla Cashew Vegan Yogurt
This cashew-based vegan yogurt is an exceptional substitute for commercially ready soy, coconut, and other non-dairy yogurts in dishes. Plus, it’s delicious straight off a spoon!
- 1 cup presoaked raw cashews
- 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce (preferably organic)
- 1 1/2– 2 tbsp lemon juice (see note)
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
- 1/3 cup non-dairy milk (or more to thin if preferred; but keep to 1/3 cup for use in dishes)
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract OR 1/4– 1/ 2 tsp vanilla bean powder
- pinch salt
- In a high-powered blender, puree all ingredients up until extremely smooth. If utilizing a standard blender, this might take a couple of minutes, and scraping down the sides a couple of times throughout. Serve, or shop in an airtight container. Makes about 1 1/4 cups.
Kid-Friendly Notes: I created this vegan yogurt mostly as a substitute for premade yogurts in my recipes (ex: BF Blueberry Muffins, Fresh Orange Cake). It isn’t extremely sweet. Feel free to make it a little more fun for your children, by stirring in additional maple syrup, or try a couple of spoonfuls of a berry, peach, or other fruit jam. Note that this vegan yogurt is nutritious for little ones that may not otherwise consume nuts or nut butters due to the fact that of textural problems– nuts being too hard, and nut butters too sticky. This dish brings cashews into a pudding-like type that can you can personalize with additional taste and sweetness! If This Apron Could Talk: Use 1 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice for usage in recipes, and if you ‘d like it tangier for eating straight, include the additional lemon juice to taste. Probiotics Note: Do not hesitate to add probiotics (by bursting acapsule), and stir into this yogurt.
