Total Time: 20 minutes
Prep: 20 minutes
Yield: 4 parfaits
In a food processor, blend together the mascarpone cheese, the thick solid part from the chilled can of coconut milk (reserve the watery part for another use), maple syrup and vanilla until smooth. Taste and decide if you would like your filling sweeter. Add more maple syrup if you like. Transfer to a bowl and chill for at least 1 hour, or until it thickens.
If using frozen Montmorency tart cherries, let them thaw in a bowl at room temperature, reserving their juices.
In a food processor, pulse the graham crackers, walnuts and cinnamon together until crumbled. Add butter or coconut oil and pulse again. Add a little bit of water until the mixture starts to clump a little.
Assemble parfaits with graham cracker crumble, creamy filling and top generously with Montmorency tart cherries and their juices.
