Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked and cooled white quinoa
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (I like Stonyfield organic)
  • 2 cups chopped strawberries

Instructions

  • Cook quinoa if you haven't already. Cook 1 cup of dry quinoa according to the package directions. Allow to cool and then place in fridge to chill for a 1-2 hours. This step is best beforehand so you can prep the parfaits quickly.
  • In a medium sized bowl, stir together 2 cups chilled quinoa, unsweetened almond milk, 1 Tablespoon of maple syrup, vanilla and sea salt.
  • In a separate bowl combine Greek yogurt with remaining 1 Tablespoon maple syrup.
  • Layer quinoa mixture, Greek yogurt and berries in a dish. Repeat layers however many times you’d like. Top with a few berries and enjoy.

Notes

  • Almond milk: I like to use unsweetened almond milk, but any milk will do.
  • Maple syrup: Feel free to use any liquid sweetener of choice like honey, agave, monk fruit or stevia.
  • Yogurt: Use dairy-free yogurt to make this recipe vegan.
