This 3 layers parfait comes with plenty of healthy fats while being low on carbs. It’s very easy to put together and ready to impress from the first tasting. I like the fact that it’s made with very few and simple ingredients (coconut, berries, whipped cream), but in the same time it’s satisfying and different compared to most of my desserts.

Sometimes I leave myself to be inspired but what I find in the fridge and pantry, and this dessert was one of those times. I knew I wanted to put together a low-carb and keto friendly dessert that was original and 100% natural. That’s how this little dessert was born and it’s all about feeling good, feeling nourished and happy. I believe that every meal, dessert and snack should be a celebration of taste, nourishment, mind and body. And this one is no exception. Enjoy!

Pro Tip: You can use any kind of berries you want and, if you love chocolate, maybe throw in a few squares in there just for fun. Enjoy and share with someone you love!

Ingredients

Bottom Layer - Coconut Cream

  • 200 g coconut butter
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
  • ½ tsp vanilla powder (optional)
  • pinch of Himalayan salt (very little, don’t over do it)

Middle Layer - Frozen Raspberries

  • 100 g frozen raspberries (other berries work fine)

Top Layer - Whipped Cream

  • 250 g raw cream (full fat whipping cream)
  • ½ tsp vanilla powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 3-4 tsp coconut sugar

Instructions

Bottom Layer - Coconut

  • In a blender or a kitchen robot, add coconut butter, coconut oil, pinch of salt and optional vanilla powder.
  • Mix until the ingredients have combined into a coconut paste.

Middle Layer - Frozen Raspberries

  • Remove frozen raspberries from the freezer and place them in a bowl for 10-15 minutes or until they defrost and release the additional water.
  • Remove the excess water before using them and set aside.

Top Layer - Whipped Cream

  • In a cold bowl, add raw cream, coconut sugar, vanilla and cinnamon powder.
  • Using a hand whisk, beat the cream back and forth until soft peaks begin to form. Make sure not to over beat or you risk ruining your whipped cream.
  • Place in the fridge to solidify and keep there until using.

How to put it together

  • Fill ⅓ of a tall jar with coconut cream.
  • Add frozen raspberries on top of the coconut, like in my picture.
  • Finish by adding whipped cream on top and decorate with a mix of fresh or frozen berries: I used cranberries, blueberries and blackberries.
  • If you enjoy cinnamon powder, you can also add a bit on top of the berries.

Notes

Since jars can vary in shape or size, it’s possible that my quantities will not always match the jars that you’re using. Keep this in mind when putting together the servings.
