Our family got into an interesting discussion about parfaits are made with fruit, yogurt, and granola. I decided to whip up this delicious Carrot Cake Parfait which uses carrots, yes a vegetable not a fruit! Let me tell you this is one delicious way to get some veggies in! Whip it up for breakfast, snack, or even dessert. I used my favorite coconut milk yogurt and added a little protein punch and fell in love at first bite with this one as I hope you do too!

Mix 2/3 of the yogurt with chai protein powder. Place carrots in the bottom of glass or bowl. Spoon the chai yogurt mixture over top, sprinkle the raisins, top with remaining vanilla yogurt, and sprinkle with chopped pecans. Enjoy!!
As a Vega Recipe Ambassador I receive Vega products, which I used as an option in this recipe. I use Vega not because it is given to me but because it has been my plant-based protein of choice since before I started blogging and some recipes are made with Vega products I purchase. I only write about foods I love, my blog is an extension of my hobby to make fun healthy food creations for me and my family.
