Chocolate-Raspberry-Vanilla Pudding Parfait (Raw Vegan)

It is 85 degrees F and I'm not feeling very hungry for dinner, so I created this fabulous triple pudding parfait. By using either fruit (fresh or frozen), or dried fruit powder, you can prepare this in almost any flavor. I chose Chocolate, Raspberry and Vanilla.

This is not an exact science. If you don't have young Thai coconuts, you can use a combo of dried coconut, cashews and chia. Adjust water as needed too. Don't be afraid to experiment until you get the consistency you desire. My parfait is chillin' in the fridge and I can't wait to dig in...

Chocolate-Raspberry-Vanilla Pudding Parfait

Pudding Mix Ingredients
2 cups young Thai Coconut water (or water)
1 1/2  cups young Thai coconut meat (or 3/4 cup dried coconut)

This looks delicious! I was just telling someone how I have to stop getting sugary drinks in the afternoon and crashing two sips in-- this would be the perfect cure for a sweet craving!
