I love dessert. There. I said it. And I will never stop loving dessert for as long as I live. While I will have the occasional slice of cake, cookie, or piece of pie (on a special holiday or someone’s birthday), nowadays I satisfy my sweet tooth with foods that have minimal/natural sugar and are dairy/gluten free, and I’ve never felt better.
These Fruit Parfaits with Paleo Pie Crumbles and Coconut Whipped Cream hit the spot last night. Please, please, make this!
I adapted the pie crust recipe from @wholesomeyumblog to make these Paleo Pie Crumbles, and I couldn’t have been more pleased. Seriously. So. Good.
For Paleo Pie Crumbles:
1 1/4 cup almond flour
2.5 T coconut sugar
3 T ghee, melted
1/4 tsp vanilla
Pinch of sea salt
~In a large bowl, mix almond flour, coconut sugar, and sea salt together. Add melted ghee and vanilla and stir until combined.
For the paleo whipped cream:
-1 can coconut cream (refrigerated overnight… I used @thaikitchen )
-1 T organic maple syrup
-1 tsp vanilla
~Whisk by hand or use an immersion blender to combine ingredients until you achieve a whipped-cream-like consistency.
Layer pie crumbles and your favorite fruit and top with coconut whipped cream and any other topping you desire (I added some walnuts to mine). This will make about 6 servings.
