Here's a low-carb treat for my American friends! These patriotic parfaits are the perfect quick-prep dessert for the upcoming Fourth of July celebrations. The red strawberry layer is topped with vanilla coconut cream and finished with fresh blueberries.

This treat is dairy-free but if you can eat dairy, you can substitute the coconut cream and coconut milk with an equal amount of whipped cream. It's naturally sweet and you can even avoid using any sweeteners.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

  I am just starting out and looking for easy recipes and
I saw this recipe and I was wondering if you could use just regular milk and if so what would you put in the place of the cream?
Thank you crystal

Hi Crystal, regular milk is not suitable for a keto diet because it is relatively high in carbs. Instead I would use unsweetened almond or cashew milk. Instead of the coconut cream, the best substitute would be mascarpone cheese. You could even use sour cream or ricotta cheese - it depends on your preference. I hope this helps!

This looks amazing! I just wondered if the calorie count is correct? It seems too good to be true! I just wanted to double check so that I don't overindulge with this one in my meal plan. Thanks!

Thank you Anna! Yes, I double checked it and it's correct. Most of the calories and fat come from the coconut layer - the remaining two layers are very low in calories Smile
