Red White and Blue Parfait

(makes 3-6 small parfaits)

Whipped Cream
1 cup raw cashews
1 cup filtered water
3 pitted medjool dates
2 tsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp vanilla extract (no alcohol)
pinch sea salt                                                                                                                                 1/4 cup virgin unrefined coconut oil

Fresh strawberries and blueberries

To make the whipped cream, place all ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth.  Store in the freezer for 2 hours before serving, or overnight in the fridge.  The coconut oil will solidify once cold, and will help the cream thicken and not be too runny.   Use a spoon to scoop the cream into a parfait glass and create layers with fresh strawberries and blueberries.  Use a pastry tube if you wanna get extra fancy!

The whipped cream will keep in the fridge for 3-5 days, and in the freezer for 1-2 weeks.  Enjoy!
