Ingredients: 
  • 1 Tbsp shredded or ribbon cut unsweetened coconut
  • 3/4 cup coconut yogurt
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2–3 tsp raw honey, plus a drizzle to garnish
  • 1/8 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 kiwifruit, peeled and sliced
  • 1 heaping Tbsp gluten-free graham crackers, crushed
  • 1 tsp finely grated lemon zest
Directions: 
  1. Place coconut in a small saucepan set over medium heat and toast coconut until it begins to brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. Place yogurt in a bowl and mix in lemon juice, honey, and vanilla extract until combined.
  3. Arrange or layer kiwifruit and then crushed graham crackers on top of yogurt mixture. 
  4. Garnish with toasted coconut, lemon zest, and drizzle with a little honey.
Notes: 

Lemon and kiwifruit bring vitamin C and antioxidants to this bowl that emulates a cream pie. The yogurt tastes like custard and contains healthy fats, probiotics, and calcium. A toothsome crumble, made from gluten-free graham crackers, supplies a perfect finish for this “pie.” Increase the protein content by replacing the coconut yogurt with plain unsweetened Greek yogurt, which is higher in protein.
