Vegan Apple-Yogurt Parfait with Maca Powder
When it comes to presenting dessert to guests, there is nothing like a jaw-dropping, multi-layered parfait. And this low-fat version of the classic, with apple sauce, coconut yogurt, maca powder, and lots of other whole ingredients, is a winner! I am slightly obsessed with coconut yogurt and with making my own carob nutella… so towering these 2 ingredients in a delicious parfait enriched with a hint of Austrian apple strudel was a temptation I couldn't resist.
