Triple Berry Crisp Smoothie Parfait Recipe - plant-based, dairy-free, single serve

Truth be told, the whole smoothie bowl trend was a little lost on me. The concept of filling a bowl with a smoothie and toppings just didn’t resonate with my relatively petite morning appetite. That is until I realized that I didn’t need to use a regular bowl. I could use a wide glass or an ice cream serving dish to make a perfectly-portioned smoothie “bowl” like this triple berry crisp smoothie parfait!

The idea came to me on a recent trip to Target. While browsing, I spotted an entire refrigerated case of Silk and So Delicious dairy-free milk beverages! My how times have changed for dairy-free consumers.

Among the varieties, there was a new-to-me economical size of Unsweetened and Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilks. I instantly fell in love with the handled 96-ounce jug, which is so much easier for my petite hands to wield than a carton.

Some further browsing in Target yielded the most amazing spring strawberries and several other types of early summer berries on sale. I loaded up!

I also found some archer farms French Vanilla Almond Granola, which I simply couldn’t resist. Especially since there was a discount for it with the Cartwheel App.

The various items in my basket shouted “smoothie bowl”, so I had to find a way to make it happen. I whipped up a triple berry smoothie with my beautiful spring produce, chia seeds, and Silk Almondmilk. Half went into a wide-mouthed serving glass, and I topped it with a handful of light and crispy archer farms granola. I repeated this process and then sprinkled on more delicious berries.

With a spoon in hand, I dove into the deliciousness and this dairy-free smoothie parfait instantly became a breakfast favorite.

Serves: 1 serving
Ingredients
  • ½ cup frozen banana chunks (about ½ large banana)
  • ½ cup frozen wild blueberries
  • ⅓ to ½ cup plain or vanilla unsweetened dairy-free milk beverage (I used Silk Almondmilk)
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh strawberries, plus additional for topping
  • ¼ cup fresh raspberries, plus additional for topping
  • ½ tablespoon chia seeds
  • Sweetener, to taste (optional)
  • ½ cup dairy-free granola (see the options below)
  • Fresh blackberries, for topping (optional)
Instructions
  1. Place the banana, blueberries, ⅓ cup milk beverage, strawberries, raspberries, and chia seeds in your blender and puree until smooth. Blend in more milk beverage if needed. It should be very thick.
  2. Blend in sweetener, to taste, if desired.
  3. Scrape half of the smoothie into a wide-mouth or parfait glass. Top with three-fourths of the granola. Scrape on the other half of the smoothie. Top with more fresh berries and the remaining granola.
Notes
Granola or Crisp Options - The archer farms granola I used was light and crisp. I recommend this type rather than a dense, chewy or overly crunchy one.

For more of a dessert, make no bake crisp topping. Stir together ½ cup quick oats, ¼ cup oat flour, ¼ cup brown sugar or coconut sugar, and ⅛ teaspoon salt. Whisk in 3 to 4 tablespoons melted coconut oil (as needed) and 1 tablespoon maple syrup until it forms relatively even clumps. Chill it in the refrigerator or freezer for 20 minutes. Use as crumbles on your smoothie parfait!

  1. That’s gorgeous, Alisa. I keep hearing about these cartwheel deals at Target. I wish we had it here! If I can get off the computer I’d make a trip to the US. 😉

  2. I have to say, I have not really fallen into the smoothie bowl trend either! But this triple berry version looks delicious, and I love it served in a glass like this, makes it feel like dessert!

    • Okay, so it isn’t just me that thinks bigger is easier for smaller hands in this case 🙂 I’m always dropping those half gallons when I try to hold them with one hand!

    • I seriously pat myself on the back when I eat berries for choosing a low sugar fruit option. It’s easy to forget which fruits are loaded with sugar and which aren’t.

  3. Simply delicious and calling my name! I’d even love this for breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day and I know my girls could make it.
