Vegan Baileys Chocolate Cream Parfaits.
I remember a coffee shop in Vermont during my college days, there were hanging plants everywhere and blond wood tables, and my friends and I loved to visit after long work days, gathering to chat and down the shop’s signature drink, tiny dark chocolate cups filled with a sweet Baileys liqueur.
But then I moved into a plant-based diet, and alas, non-vegan foods went out the window, traditional Baileys included.
So imagine my joy when I learned that Baileys created a plant-based version, specifically called Baileys Almande, sweet with the special Bailey’s flavor and an interesting almond element.
Right away I thought of those tiny chocolate cups and decided though this sweet creamy liqueur would be perfect in a creamy parfait, a kind of chocolate parfait with cookies crumbles and sweet chocolate & vanilla cream with hints of Baileys.
In case you are wondering, this blog post is not sponsored. Baileys sponsored an IG post recently and the reaction was so strong I realized my blog followers too might want to know about this plant-based liquor.
And so here we are, I hope you take the time to enjoy this little treat!
Vegan Baileys Chocolate Cream Parfaits
Whipped Cream Topping
- 1 can full fat coconut milk
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
Make Sweet Cream
- blend all ingredients until creamy. Add a little chilled plant milk if the mixture seems too dry. Split the mixture in half. Melt the chocolate in a pot that is IN a pot of boiling water. Stir the melted chocolate into one half the mixture so you have a portion of sweet cream that is vanilla, and a portion that is chocolate.
Make the Parfait
- Crush some chocolate wafer cookies for a bottom layer, spoon the vanilla and chocolate cream in alternating layers.
- Open the can of coconut milk, and pour off the liquid. Wisk up the remaining coconut cream with the maple syrup. If you want even more Baileys, add some Baileys Almande to this too! Put in a bakery bag with a piping tip, and create a spiral on the top of each parfait
- Serve chilled and enjoy!
