I looooove these things. These little jars of joy. These parfaits that make you feel like you are the naughtiest b*tch to hit the paleo scene. Oh how I love them. And you will too.

So have you ever had one of those workouts that make you feel like your muscles are going to rip out of your legs? Or that your lungs have begun to make mucusy balls of fire that you incessantly cough up for hours post workout? Well I had one of those workouts yesterday at CrossFit Broadway. After doing 2 min rounds of 200m sprints with as many hang squat cleans right after, I thought I was going to pass out. I don’t know why I loved it, but I totally did. Maybe because I got a pedicure right after with 3 awesome ladies. But the workout did put a cramp in my style…I couldn’t fall asleep for a good hour because my body was so achy. I don’t really know why I told you this story but it was a big part of my day, ok?!?

Moving on. I have big plans this weekend. Big. I plan on going to Red Rocks to workout Saturday morning then going straight to the pool to get my tan on. If you’ve never heard of Red Rocks, google that sh*t. It’s one of the greatest places on earth. Then Sunday I plan on going to the farmers market and trying out a ton of food trucks. That’s actually all I got. Sorry for the terrible stories today. My b.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Shred carrots as thin as possible. Place in large bowl.
  3. Add almond butter and eggs and mix well.
  4. Then add honey, protein powder (or coconut flour), cinnamon, baking powder and salt and mix well.
  5. Fold in chocolate chips.
  6. Grease an 8×8 glass baking dish with coconut oil, pour batter into the dish and place in oven. Bake for 35 minutes or until the top of the cake has a nice crust to it.
  7. Let cool before cutting in bite sized cubes.
  8. Once carrot cake is cooled and diced, scoop out the coconut cream that has hardened and risen to the top of the can. (Leave behind the coconut water to use for protein drinks/shakes).
  9. Place coconut cream in a bowl and mix with fork or whisk to soften. Then add vanilla extract and honey and mix well to combine.
  10. Add fresh blueberries to a bowl with maple syrup and place in microwave for 2 minutes and 30 seconds then use a fork to mash up the blueberries. If you do not want to use a microwave, cook over a stovetop until blueberries explode.
  11. Now layer the parfaits. Carrot cake, coconut milk whipped cream, blueberry sauce, then repeat.


This will make 3 jars full depending on the size of the jar, but can easily serve 4 or more.

    How is this paleo? Whey protein is a dairy..

    1. juli says:

      I said you could use coconut flour instead of whey protein powder. Some people still do dairy while paleo

  2. Brett Johnson says:

    Hey Juli, I’ve got a question. When a recipe calls for finely shredded carrots, could I use the shavings from my juicer?

    1. juli says:

      Hmmm I’m not sure just because I’ve never used a juicer but I don’t see why not!

  3. Beth @ MellowMomma says:

    This looks so AMAZING! I must make this this weekend for my family. I have to say that I LOVE your blog! I’m sure you get that a lot :). I’ve only been Paleo for about one year and your blog was the main one that I followed once I started. You have awesome recipes and are so creative. You are an inspiration! Thanks!

  4. amber says:

    : just made these for dessert… such yummy goodness in the tummy! even got the hubster’s approval 🙂

  5. Erin Runyan says:

    Juli! These are amazing, just finished my last jar. I added Hemp Seed Protein and it was just as good.


  6. Janna says:

    I’ve tried a few of your dinner recipes (all winners!) but this is the first ‘dessert’ I’ve tried… OMG! Seriously. I can’t believe how cake-like and moist it is! Totally satisfied like carrot cake, minus the sock to the gut… I added a realllly ripe banana and a pinch of almond flour and it was perfect. You should have seen how excited my boys (ages 3 and 21 months) were to eat it, they were literally jumping up and down! Love your blog, thanks for the inspiration!!!

    I try to stay away from canned foods so the coconut milk here has me thrown. Could I use coconut butter instead? Artisana make a great coconut butter. It’s raw and organic but I think it contains some coconut oil.

    1. juli says:

      i’m not sure that would work the same, but it would still taste good!

  8. Kelly Skinner says:

    Thanks, I’ll give it a try! 🙂

  9. Jenninja says:

    Totally loving your blog, and this recipe sounds amazing; going to make them tonight! Anything that’s going to make me feel like the naughtiest b*tch to hit the paleo scene can’t be all that bad!

  10. Kylie says:

    Hey…. I’m not totally Paleo but I have Celiac and love the recipes you post.
    I was wondering if greek yoghurt would work in place of the whipped coconut cream? I’m not a huge coconut fan, but would love to try this.

    1. juli says:

      I’m sure it would!!
