This sweet and tangy parfait layered with coconut, almonds, and fresh berries would also make a great dessert.

Ingredients

1/2cup heavy cream
1 1/2teaspoons granular sugar substitute, divided
1/4teaspoon coconut or pure vanilla extract
1/2cup plain unsweetened whole-milk Greek yogurt
1cup raspberries
1cup blueberries or sliced strawberries
8tablespoons sweet and salty almonds
1/2cup unsweetened shredded coconut, toasted (see tip)

Instructions

  1. Combine cream, ½ teaspoon sugar substitute, and coconut extract in a medium bowl; whip with an electric mixer on medium speed until stiff peaks form. Fold in the yogurt.
  2. Purée raspberries and remaining sugar substitute in a blender until smooth.
  3. Using 4 parfait glasses, alternate layers of whipped cream, raspberry purée, blueberries, nuts, and coconut, making two layers of each. Serve right away. 
  • Tip: To toast coconut in the oven, spread it in a thin layer on a baking sheet and bake at 300°F for about 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes to ensure even browning.
