Vegan dessert parfait recipe

Yesterday evening i got asked if i could throw together a dessert after dinner. I hadn’t planned to make dessert and didn’t know what was avaible to use, so when i began to look through the fridge, freezer and pantry i began to get an idea of what i could make! Usually a chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream is a classic and always appreciated of everyone, but today i wanted to do something different that would be quick, light, fruity and delicious. So my eyes settled on the digestive biscuits and the dark chocolate and i decided to make parfait cups.

No exact recipe, but ingredients i used:

1 pot vegan cream cheese

c.a 200ml vegan whipping cream

1/2 package digestive biscuits

175g dark chocolate

vanilla ice cream

Blueberries and banana

Sugar

 

Directions:

Begin with whipping together the whipping cream, cream cheese and sugar (to taste, so begin with c.a 1 tbs and add more if necessary). In the mean time begin to melt the chocolate in a bowl (my preferred method is over a hot water bath i.e a bowl over a pot of boiling water. Make sure the bowl can manage the heat).

Next step is to partially crumble the digestive biscuits, they don’t have to be just crumbs but into small pieces.

Then when you have defrosted the berries if frozen, melted the chocolate, crushed the digestives and whipped the cream/cream cheese it is just to begin to put everything together.

There is no particular order, but begin with some crushed digestives then add banana, whipped cream, berries, melted chocolate and repeat but using vanilla ice cream instead of cream and in the third layer use the whipped cream!

A delicious dessert which isn’t complicated, doesn’t take long to make and was a success at tonights dinner! You can of course choose to use different biscuits, using maybe whipped coconut cream and use just fruit to make it healthier if you want that! πŸ™‚
