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.
I’ve recently fallen in love with pink peppercorns!
If you haven’t tried them before, they’re not spicy like black peppercorns. They’re lightly peppery, fruity, and almost a bit sweet. They also add a touch of crunch to the salad recipe.
That means they can make a boring salad suddenly come alive. While fresh tomatoes and avocados and extra virgin olive oil all have their own beautiful and delicate flavors, the pink peppercorns add a whole new dimension to the dish.
Having gotten my parents interested in eating Paleo, my mum has been coming up with new recipes as well and this is one of her creations that has gotten a lot of praise from her friends.

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.
This is a colorful appetizer recipe that you can serve to guests at a party or make as a snack for when you’re hungry. It’s easy and quick to throw together so this could become a simple go-to recipe for you.
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.
This recipe is such an easy dessert, and it’s perfect if you have some leftover apple from another dish. You can make a quick and delicious Paleo dessert with just a few minutes of prep.
If you haven’t come across tahini paste before, it’s roasted sesame seeds ground into a thick paste. It definitely smells like sesame seeds, and you can get different colored tahini paste based on what color sesame seeds were used to make it. The consistency is similar to that of nut butter and it definitely tastes slightly nutty in flavor as well. Tahini paste has been used for centuries and is still used in many cuisines including that of many Middle Eastern regions.
If you don’t have tahini paste, then you can use almond butter instead in this recipe.
For the chocolate coating, you can use any type of dark chocolate you have available. If you’re staying mostly Paleo, then try to use dark chocolate over 70% cacao. This will have lower amounts of sugar in the chocolate. You can also use chocolate chips like the Enjoy Life chocolate chips, which are free of many allergens including soy. If you prefer to avoid as much sugar as possible, then use 100% dark chocolate for this recipe.
Most trail mixes use nuts and seeds as the ingredients, so it’s tough to find ready-made AIP (Paleo autoimmune protocol) trail mix. But luckily, you can easily create your own AIP trail mix recipe with all your favorite ingredients.
I went for a tropical flavor with this AIP trail mix recipe – mango slices and coconut flakes and freeze-dried berries give a slight crunch, sweetness, and slight chewy texture to this trail mix.
Feel free to experiment with your own flavors if you have trouble getting these specific ingredients.
You’ve probably already heard that gelatin is healthy for you – from healing digestive issues, improving hair and skin, to simply being a great source of protein. (And if you’re looking for a book with more general gelatin recipes and information about the health benefits of gelatin, then check out The Gelatin Secret here.)
However, in addition to all the potential health benefits that gelatin offers, it’s also a fantastic ingredient to have handy when you’re on an egg-free diet like AIP (paleo autoimmune protocol).
Gelatin (when mixed with a bit of warm water) can by used as a substitute for eggs in a variety of baked goods so that you can still enjoy delicious cookies or pancakes even if you can’t eat eggs.
These AIP gelatin recipes are also completely Paleo and gluten-free as well as egg-free, nut-free, and dairy-free! So enjoy these delicious recipes guilt-free.
Note – if you’re sticking strictly to AIP, then use alcohol-free vanilla in the recipes. Some of the recipes use carob powder as an AIP alternative to chocolate powder as well. And as always, if you don’t tolerate certain ingredients (even if they’re considered healthy, Paleo, AIP, or otherwise), stop eating it for a while and do some testing to ensure there aren’t any other underlying health problems.
