Paleo Passion Fruit Coconut Yogurt Parfait Recipe [AIP, Keto]
For those of us wanting to stay away from dairy on a Paleo diet, it can often mean giving up some easy breakfast favorites.
Yogurt is one of those dairy products that I often miss. I used to love eating Greek yogurt topped with fruits and nuts for a simple and delicious breakfast.
But luckily, coconut yogurt is a great dairy-free replacement.
Make your own Paleo coconut yogurt:
You can purchase coconut yogurt ready-made in many stores across North America and in Europe.
But if you’re feeling up to it, you can also make it yourself. Take a look at this recipe if you want to give it a try. Or if you have an Instant Pot, then you can make coconut yogurt in that too.
What are passion fruits?
For this coconut yogurt parfait recipe, I used passionfruit to add a ton of delicious flavor, fragrance, and bring color.
So let me tell you a bit about this amazing fruit.
Passion fruit is often also known as passionfruit, granadilla, or maracuya. They’re typically grown in tropical climates and are native to South America.
This delicious fruit is about the size of an egg but with a purple or dark red (or sometimes yellow) outer shell that can get quite brittle.
When you cut these fruits open, you’ll find a bright yellow gel-like pulp with crunchy seeds that are edible. And if you smell them, you’ll find an amazing tropical scent that reminds you of sandy white beaches.
How To Tell When Your Passion Fruit is Ripe?
In general, you can keep passion fruit at room temperature for quite a while. You’ll find that the outer shell starts to get shriveled and wrinkled after a while. That’s when they’re ripe and ready to eat. If you eat them earlier, they might be a bit sour.
