Vegan Baileys Chocolate Cream Parfaits
Bailey's has come up with a vegan version of their sweet creamy liqueur, Baileys Almande, and I celebrated by building protein-rich vegan baileys chocolate cream parfaits!
Prep Time1 d
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time1 d 20 mins
- 1 cup cashews (soaked overnight or use 1 cup light canned coconut milk - it's creamy and light doesn't taste like coconut)
- 1/2 cup macadamia nuts (no need to soak) or use more cashews
- 2 dates pitted
- 1/2 cup Baileys Almande "vegan" liqueur chilled
- 1 tsp vanilla paste
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup of almond milk
- 1/2 dark chocolate bar melted
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 the mixture in a bakery bag with a piping tip, and create a spiral on the top of each parfait.
Serve chilled and enjoy!
