Recipe: Raw Blueberry Lime Parfaits


These are the perfect mix of fresh, zingy and naturally sweet. One of my favourite recipes so far and sure to be on my table after dinner when I’m entertaining this summer. If you’ve never actually made one of my recipes now is the time!

Raw Blueberry Lime Parfaits

You could call them raw cheesecakes if you like, but then you’d expect them to taste like cheesecake. Which they don’t. These are even better than cheesecake! They are crunchy on the bottom and, when left out for just a minute, perfectly soft and icy in the centre. Hence I am self-proclaiming them to be a parfait.

Blueberries and lime are a perfect match for summer. The sweetness of the berries and tartness of fresh lime pair beautifully. No sugar needed! I’ve used buckwheat for the base to add extra crunch. This is a great tip for anyone wanting to experiment with raw desserts who wants to get more bang for their buck. It works out way cheaper than nuts for a crunchy biscuity base.


  • 1/2 cup buckwheat.
  • 1/2 tsp salt.
  • 100g pitted dates (about 2.5 dates).
  • 2 heaped tbs coconut oil.
