Cocoa Loco Breakfast Parfait

Makes 4 parfaits


For sunflower seed whip:
  • 1 C. raw, unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 3/4 C. to 1 C. unsweetened dairy-free milk
  • 1/4 C. pure maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1 T. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • Fresh fruit, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/4 C. all-natural strawberry jam (optional)
  • 1 T. granulated sugar (optional)
  • 1 box (5 bars) Enjoy Life Foods Cocoa Loco Bars, broken into pieces


  1. Note: The sunflower seed whip needs to start preparation 8 hours in advance.
  2. To prepare the sunflower seed whip, add the sunflower seeds to a bowl and add enough water to cover by at least two inches. Let sit in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours or overnight.
  3. Drain the sunflower seeds. Transfer them to a food processor or high speed blender. Add 3/4 cup of the milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed, and adding additional milk to make a thick, but smooth, consistency.
  4. Put the fruit in a large bowl. Mix with jam or sprinkle with sugar, if desired. This will create a thicker, almost syrupy fruit, and is optional depending on the ripeness and your desired tastes. If using the jam mixture, let stand 20 minutes.
  5. To assemble the parfaits, layer the Cocoa Loco Bars, fruit, and sunflower seed whip in glasses.
  6. Serve, storing leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator
