Banana Cream Cheesecake Parfait

Yes, you heard me correctly. All three ingredients are present within this decadent recipe. And yet…it still qualifies as clean. There appears to be no one definitive answer to what clean eating is, but mine includes abstaining from cow dairy. It’s a digestive issue more than anything. I can tolerate goat and sheep dairy just fine, albeit in moderate amounts. Chef Bill and I came up with this recipe idea when our friend Jerry raved about the cream-cheese likeness of Trader Joe’s chevre (goat cheese). Chevre is a polarizing cheese that has people in the two separate camps of ‘Love it’ or ‘Hate it.’ I don’t mind the bite, but Chef Bill does, and for this reason, the inclusion of chevre in a dessert he adores is a major feat.



Clean doesn’t necessarily mean low in calories, but I’m not a calorie-counter. I’m more concerned with what the calorie contains and what it’s doing for my body. I’m mindful of things like fat and sugar content and modulate portions accordingly, but other than that, I’m not a big believer in rigidity. Discipline yes, rigidity no. This is a rich, delicious dessert that also packs some nutrition (protein and healthy fat) into the equation. Have a dish when you’re feeling it. That’s the best reason of all to dive, spoon-first, into a creamy, delectable sweet treat.

A no-bake cheesecake parfait. You could absolutely spread this into a pie shell, but I prefer the carb-less approach.

      Ingredients
      • 1 can full-fat coconut milk refrigerated overnight
      • 2 containers Trader Joes Creamy Cheese (their version of chevre), room temperature
      • 2 ripe bananas sliced and mashed
      • 1 tablespoon vanilla
      • 1 box sugarfree, banana-flavored pudding mix
      • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
      • 2-3 tablespoons coarsely shredded unsweetened coconut for garnish
      Servings: people
      Instructions
      1. Open can of chilled coconut milk and drain off the coconut water (don't throw it away - drink it or add it to a protein drink!). Scrape the remaining cream into a medium-sized mixing bowl.
      2. Add all remaining ingredients except the garnish and blend on low speed with a and-mixer. When ingredients are blended, beat at medium-high speed for a light and fluffy texture.
      3. Pour into wine glasses or parfait glasses. Makes 4-6 servings depending on the size of the glasses.
      4. May be served immediately or chilled overnight. Keeps for up to a week in the refrigerator, but my guess is it won't last that long.
