Strawberry Coconut Ice Cream Parfaits

2 Comments

May is my favorite month…it’s party time for me.  First my birthday, next  Mother’s Day…then  Memorial Day which kicks off the summertime.

Kevin tells me this is a VERY busy time for him.  Lots of prepping and planning going on for me!

He and the kids do a great job of making me feel special especially for Mother’s Day.   Every Mother’s Day they plan cool stuff for me to do. One year we went to a wine festival, another to the beach. 

This year, we will be on the soccer field. Jack’s game is smack-dab in the middle of the day.

We can’t really do brunch, but we can have a late lunch. So that is the plan.  I’m not exactly sure of all the details yet, but the food will be delicious no doubt. 

I requested this yummy dessert to be served (as I devoured it during testing!):

Strawberry Coconut Icecream Parfait

To make icecream:

Ingredients:

3 cups frozen unsweetened strawberries

1 cup coconut milk (I used full fat)

Directions: Place all ingredients into a blender. I used my Vitamix. Blend for about 30-60 seconds.Use the tamper to press ingredients into the blades.   Don’t over mix or melting will occur. Serve immediately. If mixture has the consistency of a milkshake, firm it up by slowly adding a cup of ice cubes. Process until smooth.

*I used the directions from the Vitamix booklet.  Adjust settings and ingredients to make this work for you.

To make parfait cups:

Ingredients:

1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 cup fresh raspberries
1 Tbsp. raw organic agave nectar (or raw honey if want vegetarian version)
½ lime
A few fresh mint sprigs

Directions: Toss berries with agave in a bowl. Layer the icecream with berries in parfait glasses. Spritz with lime and top with mint sprigs.

Serves 4

*It’s spring so eat all the strawberries you can! If it’s too much of a strawberry overload, just use the blueberries and raspberries.

Also, making this ice cream isn’t hard or a long process. It took all of 2 minutes  to slice the strawberries and blend up with coconut milk.

This treat is realllllly super delicious. So sweet…so light…so perfect for a celebration.

I’m thinking massage and champagne after lunch, too. Oh and maybe even a nap.  Ahhhhh… a fabulous day!
