The other day on the Today show, they talked about at what age they felt old. I’m 28 and I’ve had a few friends talk about how they feel old at the same age as me, but luckily, I don’t yet. The only thing that makes me feel older is that my skin doesn’t bounce back like it use to. I now see more fine lines and wrinkles, but that doesn’t really make me feel old. It just makes me spend way more money with my medical esthetician.

Even when I got my invitation to my 10 year high school reunion the other day, I still didn’t feel old. I feel like it was just a couple years ago that I was hating my life in high school. High school was not my friend. I felt really awkward, unhappy in my skin, and I just had NO idea who I was. So I spent my days dreaming of being older, making my own money and having friends that I wasn’t forced to know for 10+ years. Luckily, I’m there! So I have absolutely no intention in going to my high school reunion. The thing about it nowadays is that most people have Facebook. So if you want to creepily know what someone is doing or what someone looks like, well, hop on Facebook and BOOM, the mystery is gone. I’ve seen what ex-boyfriends are up to, I’ve seen the high school sweet hearts get married, I’ve seen the stoners go on to travel the world and do really cool looking sh*t. So why go? Riddle me that!

So you guys…I finally got myself a Roomba. I wanted one since we moved into our house a little over a year ago but I just couldn’t imagine spending that much money on something when I wanted to spend money on furnishing our house instead…and feeding ourselves. They are just so expensive! But I finally pulled the trigger because after having to get a new sewer line and having constant mud in our backyard, our house is ALWAYS dirty from Jackson going in and out. Fur, mud, and dirt don’t go well on a white rug. I was so pumped to get a Roomba because SO many people on my blog said it was the best thing ever, but I’m not impressed yet. I feel like I would need to run it 3-4 times a day to make sure it got all the dirt since it it doesn’t go in any particular direction on the floor. Even after running for 60 minutes straight (in not a large area) I still see fur all over the place in the light. So then I get annoyed and end up cleaning the floors myself. Have any of you had this issue? What do you think of yours? I haven’t set it up any sort of schedule or anything else, so I’m wondering if I read the manual if it would get better at it’s job. I just have my own job so I haven’t even tried messing with the manual yet. It’s just more fun to talk to you guys about your experience instead. That’s totally normal, right?

Hey, guess what?! I’m going to Austin, TX to Paleo(fx) today! Are you going?!

Key Lime Pie Parfaits

5 from 3 reviews

  • Yield: 3-4 small parfaits 1x



For the key lime curd

  • 1/8 cup of key lime zest (about 6 key limes)
  • 1/2 cup juice of 14-15 key limes (about 1415 key limes)
  • 5 eggs yolks
  • 1/2 cup maple sugar*
  • 1/2 cup ghee
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Coconut milk whipped cream

For the crust

  • 1 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon maple sugar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • pinch of salt


Make Curd

  1. Place lime zest, juice, egg yolks, maple sugar, ghee and vanilla extract in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan and stir until combined. Turn on heat to medium-low heat and use a whisk to whisk constantly until the mixture melts and the begins to thickens, about 10-12 minutes. Yes, you need to whisk the entire time. The key lime curd will continue to thicken as it cools.
  2. Pour key lime curd into a jar or glass bowl. Press a piece of plastic wrap directly against the curd so it is airtight and doesn’t create a film on the top. Cool to room temperature and then place in the refrigerator. Again, the curd will thicken up even more after it is completely cooled.

Make coconut whipped cream

  1. In a bowl, add the coconut cream that sits on top of the coconut water and whip together all coconut whipped cream ingredients until smooth. (leave behind the coconut water for shakes or whatever else). You can do this with a fork or a hand mixer!

Make crust

  1. Lastly, in a food processor mix together all ingredients for the crust until combine and slightly sticky but still crumbly.

Build parfait

  1. Place a small amount of crust mixture in a jar then a spoonful or two of curd followed by more crust and a dollop of coconut whipped cream on top. Garnish with extra key lime zest as well as a slice of key lime!


*You can use coconut sugar BUT it will alter the color of the curd

    ok folks. I hate to tell you, but I’m 56, and no, I don’t feel old. It feels a bit ridiculous to hear all you young-uns talking about not feeling old at your age. Just forget the age thing and enjoy your life! (Half the time I don’t even know how old I am until I do the math. That’s probably what keeps me young.)

  2. Marta says:

    Made these tonight (but with Meyer lemons because it’s what I had!) Added fresh blueberries (& proper whipped cream instead of coconut). Wow! Rave reviews all around. Thanks!

    I made these for my memorial day bash and sweet jesus they were good! I’d give them 6 stars if I could. I didn’t have maple sugar so I used coconut sugar, the color got real weird but the taste was still outta-this-world! Thanks for the tasty recipes, keep em’ coming 😉

    1. juli says:

      hahaha yeah coconut sugar will definitely do that but i’m so glad they still tasted great!!

  4. Heather says:

    I made these for my mom’s birthday party. People loved them. So tart and fresh, but creamy and buttery too. A perfect summer indulgence.
    I am new to your blog…so glad I found you!!

    Hi hi Juli! So excited to try this recipe, brings back memories of living in FLORIDA!!! Anyways, had a roomba as well and recently sold it. (A) My kids and dogs are all terrified of it (B) it requires you to clean up the area first anyways (roll rugs, move toys, etc) and (3) it doesn’t do that great of a job, especially with dog hair. I think it somewhat works for in between maintenance to get rid of tumbling tumble weeds of dog hair (ok, and maybe my hair too, lol), but I sold it because by the time I pick up stuff to run it, I might as well just vacuum myself!
    Super jealous of those going to Paleo F(X) in Austin!!! Maybe one of these years we’ll be able to make it! Have a blast (goes without saying :D)

  6. Kendra says:

    Do you think toasting the crumble would work?

    1. juli says:

      i haven’t tried but i don’t see why not!

  7. Miranda says:

    Try the Neato instead of the Rumba. It scans the room, creating a pattern, and vacuums it in a pattern. Much better than the randomness of the rumba.

  8. Elizabeth says:

    I returned my Roomba to BBB after 6 months and bought a Neato. It’s light years better than the Roomba. We have 2 golden retrievers and 3 kids. While I do have to Neato-proof my house before I start it, it’s just so much more efficient. I have replaced the battery once but if it died tomorrow, I’d go spend another $500 on a new one. I love it that much. The Roomba was annoying and I agree that it just bounced around and wasn’t very effective.

  9. Sofia says:

    Hi! I’m from Sweden and I’ve never seen key limes in the stores, don’t think I’m able to find it here… Maybe a stupid question but will regular limes work, and if so, in what quantity? 🙂

    1. juli says:

      regular limes work! just use an 1/8 cup like it says in the recipe!

  10. Loren Messarra says:

    Is there anything totally non-dairy that I can sub for the ghee? My daughter is allergic to ghee, butter, and all dairy derivatives … but these sound delicious and key lime is her favorite!

    1. juli says:

      you could use coconut oil!
