Needing a quick and healthy breakfast option for those days when you’re rushing out the door? These Chocolate Coconut Berry Parfaits are the perfect vegan breakfast snack on the go!
At Love + Chew, we’re committed to healthy and clean eating, and this parfait recipe is no exception to that. It’s full of healthy fats from avocado, lots of protein from the coconut yogurt, and antioxidants and fiber from the berries. If you’ve never made a chocolate avocado mousse before, don’t worry – it’s easy and you can’t taste the avocado at all! Instead, it’s rich and silky smooth and perfect for adding a chocolate layer to these parfaits. It’s one of our favorite healthy hacks.
