Meyer Lemon, Lime & “Graham Cracker” Parfaits

  • Author: Annie


A creamy, tart-sweet, crunchy vegan, gluten-free parfait with Meyer lemon juice as the star – and a bit of lime as character actor.




  • 2 cups raw cashew pieces, soaked for 8 hours or overnight, rinsed and drained
  • 7 Medjool dates, soaked for a few hours, drained
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk (I used So Delicious brand)
  • 1/2 cup fresh Meyer lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup plain coconut yogurt (I used So Delicious brand)
  • 1/4 cup firm tofu* (not silken), optional
  • 1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • zest of 2 Meyer lemons
  • zest of 1 lime

Graham Crackers

  • 2 cups pecans
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 3 Medjool dates
  • 1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon


  1. In a blender, combine the cashews, dates, coconut milk, lemon & lime juice, yogurt, tofu (if using), maple syrup and zest. Process until very smooth.
  2. In a food processor, combine the pecans, sesame seeds, dates, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Process until crumbly and of uniform size.
  3. Put 1 heaping tablespoon of pecan mixture at the bottom of each of 6 bowls or glasses. Top with about 3 tablespoons of lemon mixture. Continue alternating layers of pecan mixture with the lemon mixture until you’ve used up both. Top with fresh fruit and additional zest, if desired.
