Parfaits are traditionally a cold dessert made from cream, eggs, and fruits. But you can make a dairy-free, Paleo, AIP, and Keto dessert by using a few simple ingredients like coconut yogurt.
Make sure to use an unsweetened coconut yogurt if you’re staying Ketogenic.
If you can’t find coconut yogurt, then you can make it easily yourself. Also, if you’re AIP, you’ll probably want to make your own coconut yogurt to ensure all the ingredients are AIP-friendly. Here’s a slow cooker recipe for making coconut yogurt. Here’s a recipe that uses the Instant Pot. And here’s one using a yogurt maker.
Alternatively, you can use coconut cream instead of coconut yogurt, but I find coconut cream is a bit too rich usually.
Finding delicious AIP breakfast recipes is tough. You can’t have eggs and bacon, regular cereal, or regular pancakes, donuts, and waffles. And even most Paleo breakfast recipes aren’t allowed on the Paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP).
That’s why we’ve put together this GIANT list of 42 AIP breakfast recipes – they’re all dairy-free (no ghee even), grain-free (no oats, no gluten, no rice), egg-free, nut-free, seed-free, soy-free, legume-free, and nightshade-free. They’re even chocolate-free and coffee-free!
Don’t worry though – eating a health AIP diet doesn’t mean bland or boring breakfast foods. From AIP pancakes to porridges and sausages, you can still enjoy many of your old breakfast favorites.
We’ve also found some more unusual AIP breakfast recipes to provide extra variety.
How about soups for breakfast? This is actually very popular in many Asian cultures. It’s also a great way to get more bone broth into your diet.
Or want to try your hand at making a simple AIP coconut yogurt? We’ve got that covered too!

These chicken bacon sausages are delicious as well as easy and quick to make. Plus, they fit the Paleo, Ketogenic, and AIP (Paleo autoimmue protocol) diets. Just omit the egg if you’re allergic to eggs or if you’re on AIP. If you’re ok eating eggs, then I highly recommend adding it in as it makes the sausages moister.
You can make these by baking the sausage patties, or if you have more time, you can pan-fry them in some coconut oil for an crisper outer texture and more browned flavor with a hint of coconut.
This Paleo sausage recipe is great for breakfast – you can make these sausages in advance and store them in the fridge and reheat each morning for a super quick and delicious meal to start your day. It’s nutritious and low in sugar/carbs so it’ll keep you energized until lunch.
I actually wasn’t sure if I should call these mini spinach meatloaves or spinach egg muffins as they’re partially both. There’s both beef and pork (as well as veggies) in them but also eggs to hold everything together well.
Whatever you choose to call these, they make a really nutritious and filling snack if you’re hungry. They can also make a great breakfast, packed lunch, or dinner! They’re easy to make (you do need a muffin tray though) and easy to eat. Plus, they’re low in carbs and suitable for both a Paleo and Ketogenic diet.
You can make these mini spinach meatloaves in advance and keep them in the fridge for a few days to eat so you don’t have to be cooking every day.
One of the easiest and most nutritious breakfasts you can eat is eggs with avocado. But to make it more interesting, why not give this easy baked egg in avocado recipe a try – you have to cook the eggs in some way anyway, so why not cook it in the avocado!
You might love this recipe so much that it becomes your regular breakfast dish (plus it’s so easy to make)! In addition, it’s Paleo and ketogenic (low carb) so you’ll be getting lots of healthy fats without the sugar that’s loaded in many breakfast recipes. This dish will keep you energized throughout your morning.
It can be hard deciding what to eat for breakfast when you’re on AIP (Paleo autoimmune protocol) and can’t eat eggs or dairy products. So, if you’re looking for a delicious AIP breakfast option (it’s also Paleo-friendly of course), then give these AIP banana pancakes a try!
If you’re on an AIP diet or a ketogenic diet, then having good bread is tough! So if you’re looking for a low carbohydrate egg-free, nut-free, and dairy-free bread recipe that’s AIP and Ketogenic, then this AIP bread rolls recipe is what you’re looking for!
Because this recipe uses a gelatin egg instead of a regular egg to hold the coconut flour together, you will find that it has a different texture to regular bread. The coconut flour also makes the bread a bit denser and drier, so enjoy it with some extra coconut oil or with some ghee (if you’re ok with ghee in your diet).
Breakfast is one of the toughest meals on any diet because you want something quick and easy but also delicious and filling to start your day. Luckily smoothies fit that bill perfectly. That’s why we’ve put together this list of 65 AIP smoothie recipes to help you heal your body but also enjoy your food.
If you’re not familiar with the AIP diet, then AIP stands for Paleo Autoimmune Protocol and you can read more about that diet here. So, there are no dairy ingredients, eggs, nuts or seeds, or any nightshades in these recipes.
One of the gray area ingredients for the AIP diet is vanilla. While vanilla beans are ok for most people, store-bought vanilla extract typically contains alcohol as well as other ingredients. The general advice is that if you’re cooking (i.e. heating) the vanilla extract, then you’ll be burning off most of the alcohol so it shouldn’t be a problem. However, if you’re using vanilla extract in a recipe that isn’t heated, then you should use alcohol-free vanilla extract instead. Since that’s hard to find, we suggest either omitting the vanilla, using a tiny bit of the seeds scrapped from the inside of a vanilla pod or else try this pure vanilla powder.
If you’re concerned about reacting to vanilla in any way, then for these AIP smoothie recipes, you can omit vanilla when it’s called for in the recipe. It will change the flavor though.
While fruits are allowed on the AIP diet, it’s best not to overeat them. Smoothies can be easy to gorge yourself on as they have lots of natural sweetness and honey or maple syrup is often added to them as well. Just be aware of how much fruit you’re consuming each day, and try to limit it.

Sometimes you just want a smoothie for breakfast, but most smoothies recipes are laden with juice or bananas, so we scoured the internet for some ketogenic smoothie recipes. That way, you can enjoy a quick and nutritious breakfast while staying in ketosis.
As always, different people can take different amounts of carbs in their ketogenic diet, so if you find that you need to take in fewer carbs, then skip the smoothie recipes with cherries and berries (or use less in those recipes).

Smoothie bowls are all the rage on Instagram – they definitely make pretty photos that fit well in a square frame!
But if you’re not caught up on this craze, then you might be wondering what is a smoothie bowl and how you can create your own version of one.
So, in this post, we’ll go over what is a smoothie bowl (hint, the name is a dead giveaway) as well as show you step by step how to create your own and what toppings to add for the best results. (We’ll also tell you two big mistakes to avoid when making your smoothie bowl.)
Smoothie bowls are so fun to create and to enjoy. But some ingredients that are often used in smoothie bowl recipes are not Paleo (e.g., oatmeal and granola). Most smoothie bowls also use dairy ingredients (e.g., yogurt or milk), which makes it tough for those of us trying to stay dairy-free. So, in this post, we’ve found 27 beautiful Paleo smoothie bowl recipes to make your breakfast more colorful and fun.

First, let me introduce some of these amazing ingredients to you:
We love good smoothies, and these Paleo avocado smoothie recipes are amazing. Avocados are not only a great source of healthy fats, but they can add a ton of creaminess to your smoothie too. No need to use milk or cream for avocado smoothies (although if you are dairy-tolerant, then we do have some Primal avocado smoothie recipes below too).
If you’re on the Paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP), then we also have some great AIP avocado smoothie recipes below – just look for the [AIP] tag at the end of the recipe names.
Why do we love smoothies so much?
Paleo smoothies are fast and easy to make, so you can drink a nutritious breakfast in just 5 minutes. They’re also a simple way to eat more green leafy vegetables and healthy fats (like those in avocados). You just dump them into the blender and then drink.
