Fruity Cherry and Waffle Protein Parfait

a light and airy breakfast for your spoon

By: Anne-Sophie Hoffman
Waffles topped with gooey-warm cherries are a perfect wintry comfort desert. So when cherry season rolls around in summer, we dive straight for a refreshing breakfast to start our day full of energy! Our protein parfait with crispy waffles and a sweet-tart cherry compote gives us a chance to enjoy our favorite warm winter dessert as a cold, high-protein, and vegan breakfast on warm summer days!


  • Ingredients:
    150 g cherries, 20 ml lemon juice, 0.25 tsp Flavour Kick Vanilla
    First make the cherry compote. Put all the ingredients for the compote into a small pot and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
  • Ingredients:
    0.5 tbsp White Chia Seeds, 75 ml oat milk, 35 g unsweetened applesauce, 1 tbsp Just Cashews, Coconut & Dates, 0.5 tsp baking powder, 0.25 tsp Flavour Kick Vanilla
    Meanwhile, put all the ingredients for the waffles into a bowl and mix well until you have a smooth batter.
  • Ingredients:
    0.5 tsp Coconut oil
    Grease the waffle iron with coconut oil.
  • Pour half of the waffle batter into the hot waffle iron and cook until crispy.
  • Repeat the process with the second half of the waffle batter.
  • Ingredients:
    100 g soy quark or soy yogurt, 0.5 tsp lemon juice, 1 tsp Vegan Protein Vanilla, lemon zest
    Put all the ingredients for the lemon cream into a bowl. Stir well.
  • Now assemble the parfait: Cut the waffles into bite-size pieces. Put a few pieces into each glass. Then top the waffle pieces with a dollop of lemon cream, followed by a layer of cherry compote.
  • Repeat the layers until all parts are used up.
  • Decorate your protein parfait with fresh cherries as desired.
  • Enjoy!

Our Tip: Protein Parfait Variations

You can change the fruits in your protein parfait to fit the seasons! Whip up your compote using fresh strawberries, sour rhubarb, or juicy apples. If you're in a hurry, use our Vegan Protein Cookies in place of the waffles in your summery breakfast. For more details on how to make it work, see our Apple Crumble Cake in a Jar Recipe.
