Raw Dragonfruit Cashew Cream Parfait | Breakfast Criminals

When I saw Sophie’s Berry Bliss Smoothie Parfait on The Philosophie, I knew I had to have it. So I created my own twist on the recipe. I have to admit, this was the single best breakfast I’ve had in my life (my roommates second that). Here’s the recipe – enjoy! This makes breakfast for 3-5 people. Just remember to soak your oats and nuts the night before, otherwise the process is fairly simple. Prepare it with love!
