Inspired by the beloved ice cream flavor, this parfait is made of layers of creamy chocolate banana pudding, crunchy roasted walnuts, plant-based yogurt and banana slices. It's also vegan, gluten- and refined-sugar-free!


  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • 250g coconut yogurt
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp chopped roasted walnuts


  1. Add 2 bananas, cocoa powder, nut butter, vanilla extract and salt to a food processor. Process until combined and smooth.
  2. Cut the remaining 1 banana into thin slices.
  3. Transfer chocolate banana pudding to serving glasses. Then layer on top: chopped walnuts, banana slices, coconut yogurt and a light drizzle of maple syrup. Garnish with more banana slices and chopped walnuts. Enjoy!


  • If you prefer a firmer texture for the chocolate banana pudding, simply chill it in the fridge after blending, for 1 hour before assembling the parfaits.
  • I used peanut butter but any nut butter will work fine for this recipe.
  • Feel free to omit maple syrup or substitute with honey or a sugar-free syrup of choice.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
