Passion Fruit & Pineapple Parfaits With Coconut Granola

  • Makes 6 parfaits
  • PREP: 30 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 40 minutes

Transport yourself to somewhere tropical with this summery dessert.

This creamy, dreamy coconut parfait falls somewhere between dessert and breakfast. The easy homemade granola may trick you into thinking that it’s made to eat as soon as you wake up, but the rich coconut cream and whipped cream layers lean toward a not-too-sweet fruity end to the meal. Whenever you eat it, it will transport you somewhere tropical in your mind, like a vacation in a glass. Fresh passion fruit is so worth seeking out for its crunchy seeds and juicy sweetness. We use pineapple here, too, but mango would also be great if you have it on hand.
