  • 2 tbsp Swerve, Confectioners 
  • ⅓ cup room temperature coconut oil

  • 1 cup (260 g) plain cream cheese*
  • ¼ cup coconut cream

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2 tbsp water 
  • Pinch sea salt 
  • 2 tsp arrowroot starch


Base Layer

  1. Mix the almond flour, Swerve, and coconut oil in a medium bowl until incorporated. Don’t be afraid to use your hands as it’s easier for you!
  2. Divide mixture into 6 equal parts and press each piece into the bottom of the serving jars

Cream Cheese Layer

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until incorporated.
  2. Divide into 6 equal parts and scoop into the serving jars. (If you don’t want the cream cheese going up the side, you can transfer the mixture into a piping bag or plastic bag with the tip removed to squeeze the mixture into the jars.)

Lemon Layer

  1. Place Swerve, ¼ cup lemon juice, zest from 1 lemon, water, and sea salt in a small saucepan.
  2. Cook on medium until it reaches a light simmer.
  3. Transfer a ¼ cup of the mixture into a small mug or bowl. Add the arrowroot starch and whisk. Once fully mixed, add back to the saucepan and whisk for another 1 minute.
  4. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 20 minutes before adding to the jars.
  5. Sprinkle each with a dust of almond flour and top with a lemon wedge. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to 48 hours before serving. Allow to sit on the counter for 20 minutes before serving.

Makes 6 servings.
