Low-Carb Red, White & Blue Berry Parfaits

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.

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
