Kiwi-banana-coconut-yogurt Parfait


Coconut flakes are long and wide and are a versatile ingredient that can be used either to decorate, top off baked goods, stirred into oatmeal, and sprinkle over dishes for extra flavor and texture. Of course, it’s also an excellent snack! The coconut flesh is peeled and then dehydrated in an oven or a dehydrator. Coconut flakes are highly nutritious and a great source of healthy fat. They’re also a significant source of manganese, copper, iron and selenium. In addition, they contain some dietary fibre, which contributes to dietary health.
