Recipe: Shakeberry Pie Parfait

Here’s three hints about the secret ingredient in these Shakeberry Pie Parfaits:

1) It’s got delicious vanilla flavor.

2) It’s full of superfoods.

3) It’s part of a healthy breakfast. (Or dessert!)

Give up? It’s vanilla protein powder! Specifically, my All-In-One protein, available in Paleo-Inspired or Plant-Based.

And thanks to another half dozen superfood ingredients, these parfaits not only have clean protein but plenty of filling fiber and healthy fats.

You can easily make them in the morning, so a guilt-free treat is waiting after dinner. Or reverse that and make them before bed, then enjoy a parfait as part of your healthy breakfast tomorrow!

That’s the beauty of great recipes like this one: these parfaits are simple, versatile, and completely delicious. They satisfy that itch for something sweet and indulgent without doing your body any harm. In fact, they’re full of ingredients that can help boost your metabolism and energy!

The recipe can easily be doubled or even tripled, if you’re expecting a crowd. You can also customize it with pecans or almonds instead of walnuts.

Or use chocolate protein powder and a sprinkling of cacao nibs in place of the nuts for a wholesome berry and chocolate dessert. No matter how you make it, be sure you share a pic with our team and community by tagging me on Instagram @jj.virgin!
