Key Lime Pie Parfaits With Aquafaba Whipped Cream [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan






For the Crust:

  • 4 large rectangle graham crackers (reserve 1 for topping, gluten-free if needed)
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil

For the Lime Curd (you will want to make 5-6 hours prior or the day before):

  • 1 14-ounce can coconut cream
  • 2 tablespoons lime zest
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot starch
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar, plus more to taste

For the Aquafaba Whipped Cream:

  • 4 tablespoons aquafaba (amount of liquid from 1 can of chickpeas)
  • 4 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • Pinch of cream of tartar (this helps give volume when beating the aquafaba)


  1. In small saucepan, add coconut cream and lime zest. In a small mixing bowl, whisk arrowroot starch and lime juice.
  2. Add to coconut cream mixture in saucepan and mix well. Add agave nectar and stir to combine.
  3. Place saucepan on medium heat and bring to a low bubble making sure to whisk often.
  4. Reduce heat to medium low and continue to whisk until thick and jiggly.
  5. Remove from heat and adjust sweetness if necessary. Let sit for 15 minutes to get thicker.
  6. Transfer to a glass bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let sit 5-6 hours or overnight. Place graham crackers in blender. Pulse until they are finely ground.
  7. Add melted coconut oil and pulse a few more times until fully incorporated. Set aside.
  8. Drain a can of chickpeas into a large mixing bowl and set the chickpeas aside for another recipe. Add powdered sugar and cream of tartar to mixing bowl.
  9. Using a hand or stand mixer, mix on high speed until peaks form (5-10 minutes). Mix until aquafaba is a light and fluffy consistency.
  10. Construct parfaits by layering graham cracker crumbles, lime curd, and whipped aquafaba on top. Garnish with graham cracker pieces and lime zest.
  11. Consume immediately. Aquafaba loses its volume fairly quickly so it’s best eaten right away.

Thanks a ton ! It is best to try to prepare food in such a way which it strengthens your wellbeing. By just staying away eating fattening, we make it easy for the human body to become recovered. Rejuvenating metabolism really should be first objective if we are unable to get thin.There is a guide book on the subject that I found fascinating. www.shapingrecipes.com/guilt-free-desserts/ . Of course you must give it a shot and see the end result your own.
