chocolate cherry parfaits
This recipe for chocolate cherry parfaits was posted on facebook this week by the Raw Guru.
We used an alternative chocolate mousse using avocado instead of cashews from this link http://www.choosingraw.com/raw-chocolate-avocado-pudding/
We added 1 tablespoon of lucuma powder and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to the chocolate pudding recipe. (there are several on the web, this one is sweetened only by dates).
For the Cashew whipped cream we used raw honey instead of agave (maple syrup would also be a great substitute but use 1 tablespoon instead of 1.5). This is sweet, next time we will reduce the honey by a third.
Because i am not crazy about coconut, and coconut flour is overwhelming to me, we used almond flour instead for the walnut crumble. Coconut Oil or butter doesn't seem to bother my taste buds as much.
We used frozen organic cherries.
Our son loved this as a snack!!!!
