Strawberry Banana Faux Yogurt

The perfect combination of yogurt, layered with fresh fruit and granola is a hard treat to resist. I’m all for the health benefits of probiotics, but the 18+ grams of sugar per serving is a major downside (probiotic supplements are a calorie-free alternative). What may seem like a “healthy” breakfast or dessert, can surely be filled with added sugars and unwanted calories (at least vegan options). After discovering Chef Chloe’s vegan blog, I had to try her recipe for Summer Smoothie Parfaits. I added frozen strawberries and almond milk, and refrigerated overnight for a refreshing breakfast the next day, sans sugar. I was surprised to find out that the taste and texture were almost identical to yogurt! So yummy!
