Faux-Yo Parfait

Faux-Yo Parfait

If you follow me on Instagram, you know one of my favorite things to get for breakfast is the Faux-Yo Parfait from The Gem here in Dallas. It’s so yummy and I just had to recreate it at home for you guys that don’t live near The Gem. Even though this treat is really a bonafide smoothie bowl, it’s fun to get that yogurt parfait experience without all the added dairy.

Recently, I tried Paleo Passion Foods Grainless Granola and it’s my new favorite granola for throwing on smoothies, yogurt, or even for snacking! I love the flavor and I really love how it doesn’t upset my stomach… I find that most granola has too much added sweeteners that make me feel a little icky all day; however, I don’t have that reaction at all with Paleo Passion Foods. I topped off my “Faux-yo Parfait” with Paleo Passion Food’s Caribbean Coconut Grainless Granola and I have to say, the final result of my parfait came out awfully close to the one I love so much at The Gem. WIN!!

    What would you suggest using in place of a banana (allergic), if anything?

      I think with the cauliflower in it, it will still have a creamy texture without it.

    Your dishes always look soooo delicious!! I love parfaits but have found that dairy is beginning to make me feel sick. I’m cutting most of it out of my diet so this will fit perfectly into my new diet! I really wanna try out the granola too. YUM!

    You are missing a “D” in your coupon code…just an fyi. Love following you on Instagram and your blog — it’s funny bc someone else I followed for the past two years is an old HS friend of yours (ohsweetjoy). Small world!
