For the Cranberry Sauce:

  • 3 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 orange, juiced and zested
  • 1 cup monkfruit sweetener

For the Cheesecake layer:

  • 10 oz unflavored greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp monkfruit sweetener
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 orange, zested

For the Graham Cracker Inspired Crumbles:

  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 2 tbsp monkfruit sweetener
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp vanilla protein powder


  1. For the Cranberry sauce, add the cranberries, orange juice, orange zest, water and monkfruit sweetener into a medium sized pot. Stir to combine.

  2. Heat the pot over medium heat and cook till the cranberries burst and bubble, stirring occasionally. You can also mash the softened cranberries with the back of a spoon, to get a smoother consistency. Continue to cook till the mixture begins to thicken, about 10 minutes.

  3. Remove the pot from the heat, and allow to cool.

  4. For the cheesecake layer, mix together the greek yogurt, monkfruit sweetener, vanilla extract and orange zest in a small bowl. Set aside till ready to assemble to parfaits.

  5. For the graham cracker inspired crumbles, add the almond flour, monkfruit sweetener, cinnamon, coconut oil and vanilla protein powder into a small bowl.

  6. Using your fingertips, gently work the coconut oil into the rest of the mixture, to gradually create small crumbles, about pea sized and smaller. Continue to work the mixture till you get the crumble size you desire.

  7. To assemble the parfaits, take a glass and add 1-2 tbsp of the crumbles to the bottom of the glass. Top with a layer of 1-2 tbsp of cooled cranberry sauce, and half of the yogurt.

  8. Continue adding another layer of 1-2 tbsp of cranberry sauce and the final layer of yogurt.

  9. To top the parfait, sprinkle over another 1-2 tbsp of the crumbles and a little bit of any remaining orange zest. You can also top with some cranberries rolled in monkfruit sweetener for an extra special touch!

  10. Enjoy immediately!
