Peach Cobbler Parfait with Whipped Caramel Sauce {Recipe}

This perfect parfait helps you celebrate National Peach Cobbler Day and National Pecan Day.

Remember when your grandma used to make peach cobbler, that perfect blend of buttery pecans with sugar and peaches made for a decadent but not-so-healthy treat? Well, the good news is that peach cobbler is fast and simple to veganize with this simple parfait recipe. Enjoy a rich pecan crumble with thick-whipped caramel sauce that perfectly compliments the cold and creamy peach ice cream. The best part? You can make this in minutes with everyday ingredients.

Serves 4

What You Need:

For the pecan crumble:
1 cup pitted medjool dates
1 cup raw pecans
2 tablespoons coconut butter
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the whipped caramel sauce:
1 tablespoon coconut butter
⅓ cup pitted medjool dates
1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder
½ cup warm water

For the ice cream:
2 cups frozen banana chunks
1½ cups frozen peach slices
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder

What You Do:

1. For the pecan crumble, place crumble ingredients in a food processor. Alternate pulsing and blending the mixture, stopping to scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl as needed, until a graham cracker crust consistency is achieved. Set aside.

2. For the caramel sauce, place ingredients into a blender and blend until fully emulsified. Set aside.

3. For the ice cream, place ingredients into a blender and blend until a thick, smooth ice cream consistency is achieved.

4. Spoon pecan crumble into the bottom of four serving dishes of your choice. Top with ice cream, caramel sauce, and any remaining pecans.
