Rainbow Fruit Parfaits with Dairy-Free Topping for All to Enjoy

The fruit might look magical, but the dairy-free gold is the topping. You can use your favorite plain or vanilla dairy-free yogurt, but most of them will be runnier than the image you see here. They’ll still taste delicious, and look fun, but they won’t have that pillow-y topping look. For that, I recommend a very thick, Greek-style dairy-free yogurt, like Coyo.

For a more indulgent topping, go for dairy-free whip! There are several store brands now available in spray cans and tubs. Just be sure to read the ingredients, because some non-dairy varieties contain dairy. For homemade, try my Foolproof Dairy-Free Whipped Cream Recipe. It’s easy and delicious on fruit!
