A vegan, gluten-free, and paleo raw chocolate and banana parfait from the book Sweetly Raw.


For the Brownie:

For the Pudding:

For Assembly:

  • 23 ripe bananas, diced


  1. To make the brownie: combine all ingredients in a food processor until crumbly. Processing any more will cause the brownie to become oily.
  2. To make the pudding: blend the banana, cashews, maple syrup, cacao powder, and vanilla in a blender until completely smooth. Add the cacao butter and blend again to incorporate. Chill the pudding in the fridge for at least 5 hours.
  3. To assemble: arrange some of the diced bananas in a glass. Spoon a layer of pudding on top and sprinkle some brownie mixture over it. Repeat the layers one or two more times. Serve immediately.


Ok, so I did make a few changes, but they were uber minor ;) Here are a couple of things I did differently and a few notes:

– I placed the pudding mixture into the freezer for 2 hours instead of in the fridge for 5 hours just to speed up the process a little.
– I topped my pudding with some cacao nibs because cacao nibs are awesome.
– The jar you see pictured actually contains more than one serving — it holds half the recipe’s ingredients and was split between 4 people (who happily devoured it all!). The number of servings is kind of arbitrary anyways for these types of recipes — just divide the contents as you see fit or into however servings / jar sizes you want and enjoy!
– I kept one of my jars refrigerated overnight and it was equally as pretty and delicious the next morning (see last picture above).
