refined sugar-free raspberry and coconut parfait

this is SO refreshing after a hearty meal and a long day.

its a bit like a smoothie, but thicker and more satisfying – it feels like pudding! (without all the nasty ingredients)

the toasted coconut chips add an earthiness and a crunch that gives this dessert (or snack) a lip smacking texture.

the coconut milk needs chilling, but once cold, this will take you 10 minutes to make (even less if you already have the toasted coconut chips waiting for you in a sealed container, from the last time you made it!  wink wink)

replace the raspberry with any fruit you like – boysenberries, blueberries, banana, mango……… whatever takes ya fancy

add chia seeds to the final product for extra texture!

you can modify recipes as much as you like – use different nuts, remove the cacao – add dates or dried apricots instead of maple syrup.  experiment!
