I was craving something appley, spicy, creamy, warm and maybe a bit chocolatey, that I could make quickly without baking.
Here’s what I came up with!

You will need:
2 mini trifle bowls or just nice wide glasses or bowls.

Ginger snaps or other cookies (gluten free ok)

Cream layers

1/2 cup nondairy cream cheese
2 tablespoons agave nectar
2 tablespoons orange juice

Blend cream cheese, agave and juice in a blender or food processor.

Apple layers

2 peeled and shredded Granny Smith apples
1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Small pinch ginger
Small pinch nutmeg
2 tablespoons agave nectar

Cook together the apple later ingredients in a small pan for about 4 minutes, or until softened.

To assemble:
Layer the parfaits as follows (from bottom):
Apple mixture
Apple mixture

Garnish with:
Shaved dark chocolate

Serve within a half hour of assembling.
