- 2 egg whites
- 1/4 cup honey
- Pinch of cream of tartar
- Pinch of Kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk, cold
- 2 cups Greek lemon yogurt
- 1/2 cup granola
In a double boiler on medium heat, whisk together egg whites, honey, cream of tartar, and salt. Whisk constantly until honey is dissolved and whites are frothy.
Transfer egg and honey mix to mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, add vanilla, starting on low and gradually increasing to high. Whip egg until stiff peaks form and egg mix is white and glossy (about 10 minutes).
Separate coconut fat from coconut liquid. Reserve liquid for another use.
In clean mixing bowl, place coconut fat and whip until it resembles whipped cream. Carefully fold in lemon yogurt.
In blender or food processor, add granola. Pulse until granola is a fine crumb.
Begin to assemble parfait. In tall glass, layer granola, yogurt, and meringue with the last layer being the meringue. Serve.
TIP: if you have a kitchen torch, lightly brown the top layer of meringue before serving.
