Blueberry Chocolate Parfait

Yippie for blueberry season! This time of year is just my favorite – there are SO many luscious, sweet fruits to chose from and you can buy local, which is even healthier! I don’t know if you have tried any lately but the blueberries I have eaten are just bursting with flavor! So, I figured why not pair some blueberries with my dearest LOVE – CHOCOLATE! If that wasn’t already too good to be true, I had to add some homemade creamy coconut milk whipped cream. My sweet treat turned into a trifecta of ultimate goodness – if I don’t say so myself.

Of course, we can’t overlook the amazing health benefits of the mighty blueberry. They have actually been touted as one of the world’s “healthiest” foods. Not only are they deliciously sweet right now but they are actually pretty low with regards to the glycemic index, which makes them a great fruit option for those who are pre-diabetic or suffering from diabetes. Of course, what they are really known for are their antioxidant benefits. In addition, they are also good for memory issues. Oh my – pass me some more blueberries, please!

This little parfait may look innocent enough but as you can see it is LOADED with good for you benefits. In addition to the berries I also included my new favorite form of chocolate – raw cacao powder. You can purchase it through Amazon by clicking this here, or I have found it I’m telling you once you try this stuff you will not want to go back to the regular old unsweetened cocoa. Raw cacao powder is so much smoother and richer in flavor. It is also considered a “superfood” so you can feel even better about eating your chocolate – go ahead and add a little more chocolate pudding to your parfait, I certainly did!

The best part about this parfait – you can tailor to how you are feeling. For example, you may be in the mood for something a little more decadent, so you can add a little more chocolate pudding. Or you may want something light for dessert but nothing too rich – just go lighter on the chocolate and add more berries. It’s truly a great way to end a hot summer’s day! Enjoy!
