Tropical Kamut Parfait

Serves: 1

When the weather gets hot and humid (like it is right now on the east coast…98% humidity in some areas!!) I want something that is cool and refreshing and doesn’t require me to turn on my oven! Parfaits are one of my favorite ‘go-to’ meals. They are quick and very versatile. You can switch up all the ingredients to create something different every time!

Fit Ingredients

  • 1 c (16g) Kamut Puffs
  • 6oz fat free, low sodium ricotta cheese (I uses this one)
  • 14g banana flavored whey protein (I used this one)
  • 1 tbs splenda, optional*
  • 10 drops liquid stevia, optional*
  • 1/4 tsp banana extract, optional**
  • 1/2 tbs (7g) coconut oil
  • 77g fresh mango, diced
  • 1 tbs (7g) shredded coconut

*You can adjust this to increase or decrease the level of sweetness

**The extract just enhances the banana flavor in the protein powder, but it is great without it too!

Directions

In a bowl, mix together the ricotta, whey protein, sweetener (if using), banana extract (if using) and coconut oil. In a bowl or glass put 1/2 your cereal. Next spread half your ricotta/protein mixture on top of the cereal then top with half of the mango. Repeat the layers. Top with a sprig of fresh mint, if desired.

This parfait is so light and refreshing….it sends you away to a tropical island! 🙂 It’s like a mini vacation right in your own kitchen!
