Parfaits Keto Way

If you have a friend who wants to go keto but is still unsure, give them this recipe.

Who doesn’t love a diet that lets you eat cheesecake for breakfast?

You won’t need to turn on the oven either. These are no-bake cakes made from cream cheese, keto cookies, and fresh berries.

Eat them for breakfast, but save a bit for later in the day when you can eat them again for dessert.

Keto no bake cheesecake parfaits coming at you! Easy, delicious, beautiful – what’s not to love about this no bake cheesecake that’s also low carb and keto friendly?!? Is it breakfast or dessert? Either way, we’re all in!

Full disclosure, I’m not generally a fan of keto no bake cheesecake. It’s not that they aren’t delicious and easy and super convenient compared to a traditional cheesecake – I just don’t think they are worthy of being called a “cheesecake.”

Keto cheesecake mousse, cream cheese mousse, creamy tasty goodness – all OK with me. But I don’t know that a no bake cheesecake is really a cheesecake at all. It just doesn’t have the heft – that super thick, stand on it’s own substance if you will…

And you know what? It’s GOOD. So I’m prepared to eat my previous words and call this keto no bake cheesecake parfait CLOSE ENOUGH.

Ingredients - (6 Servings)

  • 16 ounces cream cheese, softened

  • 1 cup powdered erythritol

  • 1/2 cup sour cream

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • 1 cup crumbled coconut shortbread cookies (or other keto cookie crumbs)

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh berries (any combo of strawberries, blueberries or raspberries)



  1. Combine the cream cheese, sweetener, vanilla, and lemon zest in a medium sized bowl, and blend with a mixer until smooth and fluffy.

  2. Add the sour cream and heavy whipping cream and blend until smooth.

  3. Chill for at least 1 hour, or overnight.

  4. Divide the cookie crumbs between 6 medium sized glasses or small mason jars – about 2 – 3 tablespoons each.

  5. Divide the cheesecake mixture evenly between the 6 glasses (about 1/2 cup each)

  6. Top with fresh berries.

  7. Alternatively, you could do 2 layers of each item as shown, for a more attractive presentation.


Assemble right before serving for the best texture.
