Lady Liberty Vegan Parfait

This is a guest post by Brook and Michael over at Being Vegan Eats.

Here’s a patriotic—and delicious!—recipe, perfect for your 4th of July celebration . . . fireworks not included.

Cheesecake ingredients
6 oz. Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/8 cup almond milk or other non-dairy milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
4 Tbsp. granola, we used almond vanilla granola

In a mixing bowl, combine all the cheesecake ingredients. With a hand mixer, blend the Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese, powdered sugar, non-dairy milk and vanilla extract until very smooth. Cover and chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours before serving.

Strawberry compote ingredients
1 cup strawberries, chopped small
1/8 cup sugar
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. corn starch
2 Tbsp. water

In a pot, combine the strawberries, sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch and water. Bring to a boil over Med/Hi heat and then reduce the heat to Med/Low and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir occasionally and smash some of the strawberries when they are soft. Remove from the heat and allow the compote to cool. Put in a container and store in the fridge until ready to use. (Repeat the process for the Blueberry compote.)

Blueberry compote ingredients
1 cup blueberries
1/8 cup sugar
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. corn starch
2 Tbsp. water

In a pot, combine the blueberries, sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch and water. Bring to a boil over Med/Hi heat and then reduce the heat to Med/Low and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir occasionally and smash some of the blueberries when they are soft. Remove from the heat and allow the compote to cool. Put in a container and store in the fridge until ready to use.

Making the parfait!
In a parfait cup, place 2 Tbsp. of the granola in the bottom of the cup. Next layer the blueberry compote, then the cheesecake filling, followed by the strawberry compote. Lastly, top it all off with 2 Tbsp. of granola.

This recipe makes 2 parfaits. Serve cold, Enjoy!
