Serving Suggestions

This parfait tastes wonderful served fresh and cool.

*It is best to make the parfait an hour ahead and let set it in the fridge. 

That makes a perfect delight, especially on warm summer days :-) 

*This treat is also suited wonderfully with other berries like raspberries 

and morello.
