Strawberry Lime Parfait

I sit here writing on my bed with the balcony door open taking in the fresh spring evening air.  It is finally getting warm and with the change of seasons come the growth of summer fruits!  And in Hamburg that means that the strawberry stands will soon be up.  I have already got a head start on preparing this delicious Strawberry Lime Parfait.  With fresh strawberries at the bottom and the most refreshing and light tasting Strawberry Lime pudding over the top.  It is the perfect treat to enjoy while we transition to summer!

Strawberry Lime Parfait

  • 3 c Strawberries, chopped
  • 1 1/2 c Cashews
  • 1/3 c Agave Nectar
  • 1/4 c Lime juice
  • 1 1/2 tbls Lime zest, lightly packed
  • 2 tbls Coconut or Almond Milk
  • 2 tbls Coconut Oil, melted
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Powder
  • Pinch of Celtic Sea Salt

Add 2 c strawberries plus the rest of the ingredients to a blender and blend until completely smooth.  Serve immediately or place in the fridge to set.

To serve divide the remaining 1 c of strawberries between 4 dessert glasses or bowls.  Pour the Strawberry Lime pudding over the top and sprinkle with lime zest or garnish with a strawberry or lime wedge.

Serves 4

    This parfait not only is easily put together, but is absolutely delightful! I made a double batch and they are disappearing at lightening speed from the frig!

    The color and flavor are both pleasing to the eye and palette.

    Thank you for sending out this yummy slimming concoction!

    Never thought of strawberries and lime together, but yes, it tastes as good as it looks, and definetly is a winner for a Spring dessert!

    Good job!

    I love it that your desserts, the ones I have read, don’t call for any sea stuff for setting and thickening or any other hard to find ingredients in my very small town or avocados – I can taste avos in anything!! I love them, but not in my chocolate. Keep the good stuff coming.
