Parlez Vous Parfait
Last night, for Sugar High Friday, I made this berrylicious Parlez Vous Parfait with blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, plain yogurt, homemade granola, and orange blossom honey. The layers are (from bottom to top): blackberries, yogurt, honey, granola, sliced strawberries, yogurt, honey, granola, blueberries, yogurt, honey, granola, and more honey. After building the parfait, I gave it to my husband. Don't worry - I made a second one for myself. It was cool and refreshing on a hot and steamy Florida night. Perfection.
