Yogurt Parfait

 
Paleo Yogurt Parfait

I'm headed out of town tomorrow to go to a crossfit competition. Two other girls from our crossfit and I are competing together as a team on Saturday in the Gotcha 6 Garage Games Partner Throwdown. We have 7 teams competing from our box. It should be a blast!!
I made this yogurt earlier in the week, and I've had it for breakfast every morning. I just made another batch to bring with me tomorrow to have for breakfast before the competition. It's good stuff!

I recreated this recipe from the delicious raw yogurt that I got while I was in Florida. I didn't have measurements so I had to just play with it. I had never actually worked with a real coconut and I must say its pretty difficult. I had to use a hammer and a nail to get it cracked open initially. Totally worth it though.

To make yogurt parfait:
3/4 cup unsalted cashews, soaked in water for 20 minutes
1 cup coconut water
1 cup meat from inside the coconut
1 tsp vanilla.
Drizzle of honey

1. Start by cracking your coconut and draining the water inside into a small bowl
2. Now use a knife to cut out the inner meat of the coconut.
3. Pour soaked cashews, coconut water, coconut meat, and vanilla in a blender and mix well
4. Serve for breakfast or dessert with blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries. Drizzle honey on top.

    This was a lot of work, but I had a lot of fun trying to break open the coconut and get all the meat out. Mine turned out a bit thin after I whirled it up in the Vitamix, so I added a spoonful of coconut butter to thicken it up some. Thanks for the great recipe!
