Fruited “Yogurt” Parfait

Recipe for Fruited “Yogurt” Parfait
Becky Luigart-Stayner


2 cups raw cashews, soaked in water to cover overnight or for 6 to 8 hours, drained
6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup ground chia seeds
2 cups blackberries
2 cups blueberries
2 cups raspberries
2 cups sliced strawberries
2 cups sliced nectarines
1/2 cup date paste (see below)


Combine cashews, lemon juice, sea salt, chia seeds, and 4 cups water in a blender or food processor and process until smooth and creamy. Transfer to covered container and refrigerate until ice cold. (Put into freezer for quicker chill time.) This is the “yogurt.”

In a glass jar or bowl with lid, layer “yogurt,” fruit, and date paste, alternately. For a sweeter combination, add more date paste with each layer. Top with “yogurt” and cover. Refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours, or until ice cold. Mixture thickens as it chills.

Date Paste
