Tasty Tuesday: Key Lime Pie Parfaits

I am transforming (or at least trying to) my eating into a more healthy lifestyle.  Less processed foods and more of making my own goodies.  I have to be honest, I struggle with some recipes.  The secret ingredient in this recipe is avocado.  Now, I know they are good for me BUT I just don’t care for them.  But, I am willing to give it a try…

This recipe is from Food Babe who is all about healthy clean eating.  So, if you want to shake things up in the morning, this creamy parfait is tart, but full of fiber and nutrients to keep you satisfied all morning long.

Avocados are packed with healthy fats shown to protect the heart and are also a good source of fiber and fat-soluble nutrients such as Vitamin E.

Let’s get started, you’ll need a blender and a few simple ingredients…

Prep time:  10 mins     Total time: 10 mins     Serves: 3      Weight Watcher Smartpoints: 7

Ingredients

1 large avocado, peeled and pitted
¼ cup culinary coconut milk, more as needed
1 lime, juiced and zested
2 1/2 tablespoons raw honey
pinch sea salt

Optional: 1 cup granola of choice (add these points)

Instructions

Place all of the ingredients in a blender except the granola and blend until smooth.
To serve, place ¼ cup granola in a cup and top with ¼ cup key lime pie mousse. Repeat the granola and mousse layers once more. Enjoy!

Note:  Please use all organic ingredients if possible.
