If I were you, I’d eat this for breakfast.
That is what we did. And oh goodness it was mega super delicious, because this is the most epic yogurt parfait EVER.
Yogurt parfaits can be such snooze-fests. Like those ones you see with the runny berries and mushy granola and boring yogurt. That is not what I want in a parfait. But this IS what I want in a yogurt parfait. Actually I think there could be an even epic-er parfait with more color. I’ll get on that.
Side note: Andrew is using my phone for something and he just said, “why is your phone almost dead?” Does he not know me at all? My phone likes to live on the verge of death at all time. End side note.
So this recipe is pretty much like a banana pudding that has been coconut-ified and is filled with probiotics. I don’t think being “filled with probiotics” is a major selling point of a banana pudding, but here we are. Life takes you on many unexpected turns. And probiotics are a pretty legit thing to incorporate into your life…so bring on this coconut yogurt banana pudding.
Are you a Noosa fan? I am. They didn’t pay for this post or anything, I just like their coconut yoghurt SO much and think you should try it. If you don’t like coconut, that is fine. Just pick another yogurt flavor.
Hmm. What should you know about this recipe? You should know that you need pretty much nothing to make it. We are in a stage of the kitchen remodel where we have no sink and no oven and no patience. I’m over the house feeling unsettled. It makes me feel ungrounded and like my head is filled with a mess because the house is such a mess. I’m so not a tidy person, but this type of messiness is too much. Ahhhh. But you don’t need to know that. You need to know about this recipe.
I’m still very much in love with the graham-nut butter crumble that is adorning the top of this. I put that crumble on the latte almond butter smoothie last week and I think it’s gonna be the new trendy topping.
It should be put on many things. But before you get overwhelmed with thinking about all the things you want to put it on, just put it in this parfait.
Coconut Banana Pudding with Graham-Nut Butter Crumble
Yield: serves 2
Total Time: 10 minutes
8 oz Noosa coconut yoghurt
2 ripe bananas
graham-nut butter crumble
7 graham crackers
2-3 tablespoons almond butter (i used Justin's Maple)
Mash one of your bananas. In a bowl, mix together coconut yogurt and mashed banana. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, use your fingers to crush/crumble the graham crackers into a sand-like consistency. Add in almond butter 1 tablespoon at a time and work it in with your fingers until crumble starts to stick together. Layer crumble, yogurt and bananas. EAT!
