Gluten-free and low carb, this strawberry parfait will hit the spot. Light and full of flavor with a nice crunch from baked almond flour.
Strawberry Parfait Day is the 25th which is odd since by June 25th, peak strawberry season is past in NC. However we still had some fresh strawberries around for me to work with. One of my favorite recipes for Strawberry Parfait is one that uses pretzels and brown sugar with yogurt as the filling. But, I wanted to create one that was low carb so I experimented and came us with this delicious version.
How do you make a low carb strawberry Parfait
I worked off a recipe for low carb cheesecake bars. The crust uses butter, almond meal, a little Swerve, liquid stevia and some xanthan gum mixed with cinnamon. It might sound a little strange but it tastes great and is gluten-free and low carb. Once baked, it’s crispy and tastes like snickerdoodles. Next layer whipped cream and strawberries between layers of crust and get this wonderful dessert.
You can make extra crust and freeze it to have on hand.
