Well, it's Monday and I'm back with another new recipe! You may have noticed the last post was on Monday, instead of the usual Wednesday/Saturday posts. If you missed that Vegan Chocolate Cherry Parisian Mousse, get to it. By the way, I've started a new posting schedule here for the blog. Every Monday and Thursday will be shiny new emails from yours truly. Excited? You should be. I sure am. Lots of exciting things coming this year from the blog!
So, with that announcement, I have a really perfect recipe for you today that is just screaming summer. A lime whipped cream and blueberry granola parfait. This is super healthy and can be made for breakfast or a midday snack. When it's as hot as it is currently here in Texas, I start craving citrus. So, when Sunwarrior contacted me to create a recipe for them and I got the chance to select which product I wanted to use, I chose their "Supergreens". I loved that it didn't have any sweetener in it and that it was literally green.
That got my mind spinning to create something green and citrusy. Lots of fresh lime juice and lime zest. I have never had a whipped cream like this one. To be honest, I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but oh my, it was incredible with the contrast of the sweet, crunchy granola. This granola is nut-free and just about as simple of a granola you can make too.
I chose to create a ridiculously, easy granola for this parfait, to really let the lime whipped cream stand out. This vegan sunbutter molasses granola is perfectly sweetened, nut-free, dairy-free, oil-free and forms nice, beautiful clumps.
You only need 8 total ingredients to make these amazing granola parfaits. Only 7 if you omit the supergreens, but they do give a nice dose of healthy greens and a beautiful color to the whipped cream.
I can't wait to hear what you think of these parfaits! You have to come back and leave me feedback and tell me. You can also tag me on Instagram with a photo using my hashtag #thevegan8, otherwise I will likely miss it. I seriously love seeing your awesome photos of my recipes and recreations!
