Breakfast. Snack. Dessert!
Whether you’re looking for a simple breakfast or snack, or even a decadent yet light dessert, we’ve got you covered! You’ll love our Apple Pie Parfait recipe. It’s quick to make, uses simple ingredients (that’s how we roll), contains a good source of protein and fiber, is appealing to the eye and of course, tasty too!
Plain yogurt is where it’s at.
If you’re new to eating plain yogurt or you’ve tried plain yogurt in the past and it resulted in the sour milk face, trust us on this one! The Apple Pie topping will take your plain yogurt to another level as it will add the perfect amount of sweetness. Seriously, there is no need to add anymore sweetness with a flavored (more than likely, sugar-loaded or artificially sweetened) yogurt. We may just have the golden-ticket in converting you to choose plain yogurt, with this recipe.
Did you know some yogurts have more than 30 grams (7.5 tsp.) of sugar per serving?!

What’s the dairy-free option?
If dairy doesn’t agree with you or you have an allergy to dairy, no sweat. You can still enjoy this deliciousness in a parfait fashion by serving it on top of canned coconut cream or your favorite dairy-free yogurt such as coconut yogurt.
Now to the Apple Pie Parfait recipe!
- 24 oz. (3 cups) plain goat or grass-fed cow milk yogurt^
- 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
- 2 small apples, chopped
- 2 Tbsp. water

- ¼ tsp. nutmeg
- 3 Tbsp. dried cranberries
- ¼ cup chopped walnuts or pecans
