Recipe: Almond Butter-Coconut Milk Parfait

Just because I’m whole30ing doesn’t mean I don’t like an occasional treat. This came to me one day and it’s been my go-to for dessert or a quick snack when needed.

One of the loveliest things about this WOE is how it breaks down the psychological barriers we’ve built up in our minds about how food should be so that we can discover the myriad ways food can be. I never would’ve thought of this pre-Primal, and maybe not even pre-Whole30.

Nothing complicated here. I don’t mean to insult anyone’s intelligence. I’m just sharing in case you didn’t think of it already. What simple but surprising concoctions have you come up with?

Almond Butter-Coconut Milk Parfait

Amounts given are per serving

1/4 cup almond butter

1/4-1/3 cup coconut milk (I think Native Forest brand works best for this because it’s already blended together. If using something else that separates, like Thai Kitchen, try heating it up a bit first to combine it.)

Handful fresh or frozen/thawed berries (I used huckleberries)

— In a dish, layer almond butter on the bottom, pour coconut milk on top, and sprinkle berries over. Now put it in your face. *Yum*
