Berry Parfait with Coconut Kefir

For a quick breakfast or a snack, there’s nothing like a creamy parfait. Use your favorite berries – today I used blueberries, raspberries and black elderberries. This is yummy with Easy Homemade Coconut Yogurt, coconut kefir or goat yogurt.Kefir and yogurt are easy to assimilate, as the proteins are mostly digested by healthy bacteria. I added a dash of vanilla and optional sweetener. Today I used sprouted, toasted organic almonds. This is an easy breakfast or snack. It serves two, but I ate them both!
