Avocado Cream Berry Crunch Parfait

So Jac and I are big time South Park fans and thought it would be hilarious to make a "Mint Berry Crunch" parfait. Here's a link if you don't know the power of the crunch:

So no one told us mint + berry is not the best. Jac said it tasted more like a toothpaste parfait. That must be the secret to his powers, driving people away with bad flavour combining ;). So we made it again in a more simple way with just plain ol' avocado cream and strawberries and you know what? It was deelish!

6-7 strawberries, stemmed
1 tbsp coconut sugar

To start, let berries and sugar sit together in a bowl until the juices are released and it's a jammy sort of texture and taste.

Avocado Cream:
1 avocado
1-2 tbsp agave nectar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

Whiz together in food processor until totally smooth.

Layer cream, berries and granola/coconut on top of each other in little glasses. Sprinkle with granola or coconut or whatever you please!

So we are both moving to Toronto for school for the year and will probably not be able to keep doing elaborate recipes like we've been doing all summer. We think it will be a nice change to do more student-friendly simple recipes that are still exciting and yummy! So expect more recipes like this Avocado Cream Berry Parfait and more everyday eats. Happy September everyone!
