Fruit Parfait

1/2 organic apple, chopped
1 banana, sliced
2-3 spoonfuls unsweetened organic applesauce

Parfait Base:
1/4 c. flaxseed
1 T. cinnamon
1/4 c. walnuts or mixed nuts

Optional Toppings:
sprinkle of raisins
sunflower seeds (good source of Omega 6's)


Combine flax, nuts, and cinnamon in the Vitamix dry container and blend until smooth (about 1 minute). Spoon mixture into parfait bowls. Spoon over applesauce and sprinkle on cinnamon and nutmeg. Slice banana and chop apple, adding both to the top of the layers. If desired, throw on some sunflower seeds, raisins, and drizzle with agave nectar. You can add a spoonful or organic peanut or almond butter or top with yogurt if you want (I didn't use any dairy here).

  1. Hey Jon (and Cindy) -- nice to meet you. I started this blogging thing thinking there weren't that many of us GF/DF bloggers around, but I'm finding otherwise. There's a whole little GF subculture out here in cyberspace! And some really good cooks, no less. How fun! It's nice to find you. And thanks for visiting my website. I just posted a raw veggie gazpacho to go with your yummy looking fruit parfait. :-)
    In good health,
