  • 1 box Devil's food cake mix
  • 1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 cups fat-free ricotta
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup shredded, toasted sweetened coconut
  • 4 tbsp agave syrup
  • 1/2 cup toasted oats
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 4 cups fresh well washed berries
  • 2 oz bittersweet chocolate, for shaving


Prepare two 9-inch round cake pans with nonstick spray or butter and lightly flour each pan.

(Layer 1) In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, combine the cake mix, yogurt, and water and mix well until no lumps remain. Divide batter evenly into prepared cake pans and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake emerges cleanly. Allow the cakes to cool completely in the pans.

Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl, mix the ricotta, coconut milk, shredded coconut and agave. With a rubber spatula, gently fold them together to fully combine. Remove the cake from its pan and place in desired glass dish with high sides. Evenly spread half of the whipped topping mixture on top of the cake (Layer 2).

In a large resealable bag, combine the oats, flaxseeds and walnuts. Seal the bag and shake well. Sprinkle half of the mixture evenly over the ricotta (Layer 3), then top with the berries to cover the whole cake surface (Layer 4).

Repeat all 4 layers with the other half of the ingredients. Using a vegetable peeler, shave the bittersweet chocolate decoratively over the top (Layer 5). Serve dessert by scooping portions of the cake and all its layers into shallow bowls.
