Creamy Avocado Lime Parfaits

Creamy Avocado Lime Parfaits from Weelicious

Over the past week Chloe’s class has been preparing for St. Patrick’s Day, discussing and learning about four leaf clovers, leprechauns and what the holiday is all about. Next week they’re even going to make bright green Spinach Pancakes to celebrate the holiday. It’s easy to fall back on using green food dye in St. Patrick’s Day recipes, but when you can make something dye-free using naturally verdant foods it’s raises the fun and health antes!

Creamy Avocado Lime Parfaits from Weelicious

These Avocado Lime Parfaits are a decadent way to make a vibrant emerald treat using ripe avocados as the puree, lime juice for zing (and to retain the avocados bright green color) and a crunchy crumble topping made from pistachios, sweet dates and unsweetened coconut. Not only is this dessert free of gluten, dairy and refined sugars, it’s also a no-bake recipe which makes it especially appealing if you want instant gratification and are not in the mood to turn on the oven.

I like to chill the parfaits for a few hours, but trust me when I tell you they’re also unbelievably good the moment they’re prepared. If you want to discover more dye-free St. Patrick’s Day recipes for parties or school functions check out a bunch right here!
