Angel Food Cake

  • 11 large egg whites
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour sifted
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot flour sifted
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup Powdered Swerve Confectioners Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp cream of tarter
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • Berries of choice for the parfait. I used strawberries and blueberries

Coconut Whipped Cream

  • 2 cans unsweetened coconut milk unshaken, refrigerated overnight
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup Powdered Swerve Sweetener or Powdered Monk Fruit


Angel Food Cake

  • Add the egg whites to a bowl and cover with a towel. Allow to sit for 20 minutes.
  • Pre-heat oven to 325F.
  • In a food processor, add in the coconut flour and arrowroot flour. Pulse together for about 20 seconds. Set to the side.
  • Place the room temperature egg white in a standing mixing bowl. Beat on high spead until it begins to foam. Once that happens, add in the cream of tarter, vanilla extract, lemon juice and salt.
  • Beat all together on high speed.
  • Slowly begin adding the Swerve Powdered Sweetener. Continue whipping until soft peaks form.
  • Take the dry ingredients from the food processor and fold in using a spatula. Do this in 1/4 cup cup increments. Make sure to do this slowly. You don't want to deflate the egg whites.
  • Slowly scoop the mixture into a 10 inch UNGREASED Angel Food pan.
  • Bake at 325 for about 35-40 minutes until lightly golden.
  • When removing from the oven, immediately invert pan onto a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely, around 2 hours or so. Run a knife along the edges of the pan and carefully plate the cake.

Coconut Whipped Cream

  • Place the cans of full fat coconut milk in the fridge overnight.
  • Remove and open the cans.  Drain off the liquid and keep the thick cream.
  •  In a large mixing bowl, mix the coconut cream, the powdered swerve, lemon juice and the vanilla extract using a hand held mixer. Mix until stiff peaks forms.


  • Cut once slice of cake for each parfait. Crumble it up and add half to the bottom of a glass.
  • Top with a couple of  tablespoons of coconut whipped cream and berries
  • Repeat the process once more time.
  • Top with lemon zest along with more berries if desired and enjoy.


  • Adding the coconut flour and arrowroot flour to the food processor is key. This will ensure that your cake is fluffy and not dense.
  • Make sure to fold in the dry ingredients slowly. Do not stir fast or over-mix.
  • In place of arrowroot, you can also sub tapioca flour.
  • I recommend using an actual Angel Food Cake Pan that has a tub. It makes removing the cake so much easier.
