For those of us who want a healthy and naturally green treat for St. Patty’s day, I present to you the leprechaun parfait. This would make a wonderful breakfast or dessert for this special day in March.
1/2 cup coconut cream
1/8 cup lemon juice
3 tbsp vanilla extract
4 packets stevia
4 kiwis, sliced
1 cup pistachios, crushed
Place a can of coconut milk in the refrigerator for a half hour or so to allow the liquid and “cream” to separate. After it has separated, remove only the thick white “cream” from the top and set aside the liquid for use in a smoothie or other recipe later. Place the coconut cream into the food processor along with the meat from two medium sized avocadoes, 1/8 cup of lemon juice and 4 packets of stevia. Mix until smooth. Peel an orange and add to the mix along with 3 tbsp of vanilla extract. Process again until smooth.
Pour a small amount of filling into the bottom of the wine glasses. Top with a layer of pistachios and a layer of sliced kiwi. Add the remainder of the filling to each glass before adding a final layer of topping.
