IMG_6996

There are four layers to this yummy parfait. A layer of crumb, lemon cheesecake mousse, fresh raspberries and meringue and if you don’t need your parfait to be diabetic or keto just exchange the xylitol for sugar.

You Will Need

1/2 cup of desiccated coconut
1/2 cup of almond meal
2 oz (60grams) of butter
3/4 Cup of Xylitol which you will use in two lots
1 Cup of whipped Cream
1 Cup of Spreadable Cream Cheese
1 Teaspoon of Gelatine Powder
1 Tablespoon of Lemon Juice
2 Punnets of fresh Raspberries
2 Egg Whites
4 glasses
1 small tray
Baking paper
Kitchen Torch
Hand Whisker

To Make Layer 1

Put in a bowl
1/2 cup of desiccated coconut
1/2 cup of almond meal
2 oz of butter

Rub together until it resembles lumpy breadcrumbs. Line a 7inch by 11inch tray with baking paper and spread the crumb mixture out over the tray. Bake in the oven at 180c (350F) for ten minutes or until lightly browned. You will need to watch this as it can burn quickly and without warning (a bit like some relationships) When browned put two heaped dessertspoons of crumb into the bottom of each glass

To Make Layer 2

Place a layer of fresh raspberries in each glass

To Make Layer 3

1. Put 1 cup of Whipped Cream into a mixing bowl. Add the 1 Cup of Spreadable Cream Cheese and whisk until combined.
2. Add 1/4 cup of the Xylitol and whisk until combined.
3. Melt 1 Teaspoon of Gelatine Powder in 1 Tablespoon of boiling water and stir until combined.
4.Add 1 Tablespoon of Lemon Juice to the gelatine.
5. Pour the gelatine mixture into the Cream Cheese Mixture whilst whisking and whisk until combined and thick and creamy.

Place three heaped dessertspoons of this mousse mixture over the raspberries (use a little more or less as you need)

To Make Layer 4

Seperate two eggs. (Put the yolks away to make an omelette). Whisk the egg whites until they form firm peaks adding the 1/2 cup of Xylitol bit by bit. Pipe or spoon this on top of the parfaits. Use a kitchen torch to cook the meringue until lightly browned or if your dishes are suitable pop briefly under a grill.

Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture over the parfait and pop in the fridge to set.
