    What to do

  • Avocado Mousse

  • 1. Remove skin and seed from avocados, and place the green flesh into a food processor, removing all brown spots as you go.

  • 2. Add lemon juice and honey, and blend until smooth and creamy.

  • Chocolate Cashew Cream

  • 1. Place cacao powder, cashew nuts, honey and water into blender, and blend until a smooth and creamy consistency.

  • Crumble and Assembly

  • 1. To make crumble, combine raisins/sultanas, pecans, tahini and coconut in food processor, and mix until well combined.

  • 2. To assemble, place a layer of blueberries across the bottom of a parfait dish, and cover lightly with a thin layer of crumble mix.

  • 3. Place sliced strawberries around the outside of the parfait dish to decorate. Pour about one-third of cashew cream mixture over crumble. Be sure to fill any gaps.

  • 4. Top with one-third of the avocado mousse, then repeat layers of berries, crumble, cashew cream and avocado mousse. Cover lightly with crumble mixture and top with blueberries to finish.

  • 5. Place in refrigerator to set, preferably overnight.
