Healthy Paleo friendly breakfast – Muesli and Berry Parfait with Coconut Cream. Layers are made up of:
- Muesli Mix (variety of seeds, almonds & coconut (all toasted in the oven) + grated carrot and apple
- Berry puree (I used *frozen berries for this)
- Whipped coconut cream
- Topped with fresh berries
Ciao for now,
*Since I made this Parfait and prepared this post the story has broken out about people contracting Hepatits A from eating Frozen Berries. I used the Woolworths Select brand which says on the back in small print that the berries are sourced from Chile (not China). Still annoying though as I had assumed as it were a home brand that they were Australian grown. Need to read labels more closely! At the time of writing this there is a recall for the following contaminated products:
- Nanna’s Raspberries, 1kg packs, with best before dates until 15/09/16

Thanks for sharing this. I’ve been spending a small fortune on coconut yoghurt and never thought to whip coconut cream as an alternative.
I will be steering clear of the frozen mixed berries for a bit though, after the hepatitis A scares. I have enough issues with my health as it is.
Raychael – there’s a trick to whipping the coconut cream. A room temperature can of coconut cream is watery. You need to chill the can overnight in the fridge upside down. In the morning turn the can right side up and the majority of the ‘cream’ will be more solid and on top. The watery stuff being at the bottom. Scoop the ‘cream’ out for whipping. Either toss the watery stuff or use for other purposes. I’m not touching my remaining frozen berries. My brand is not one of the ones listed but I’m still not touching them. Might end up throwing them out. I think I will stick with fresh Australian grown!!
I thought this was quite good timing!! Ha ha
I know!! I couldn’t believe it!! I’m pretty sure I was vaccinated against Hepatitis A prior to a trip to Singapore. I even had the booster six months later to cover me for life. I should live a bit longer I think! 😉
That looks absolutely divine – yummo!
It was delicious Kirsty 🙂
This is so cool! After months of eating food while travelling I may have to go on a strict diet when I get home so will have to bookmark this for later.
Bit hard to prepare this while travelling where you are but I am sure you are getting to try lots of interesting food in the meantime! 🙂
No frozen berries for me except ones I’ve frozen myself – but this looks delicious. Thanks for the tip too.
It was delicious! I always eat fresh berries. This was the first time I bought frozen berries purely to make the berry puree. Lucky it wasn’t one of the contaminated brands but regardless I won’t buy them again now that I realise they are not Australian grown!!
Lol! I looked at the “frozen berries” part and thought “oh oh” 🙂
Still looks absolutely delish! Will make a nice change from Vegemite and toast for breaky x
Haha – I know! How spot on was the timing?!! I’m still standing so I think I’ll be ok. It was a nice change for brekky. I used to have toast a lot but I haven’t eaten any bread in over a month now! Hope work is going well for you Grace! xo
