Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday!
Normally...I like to post a recipe on Tuesdays, but I'm on day two of the Dr. Oz 3 Day Cleanse...yep! I am giving it a whirl after seeing Alissa's review. I'll post my own thoughts when I'm done, but in the meantime, I thought today would be appropriate to welcome a guest post instead.
Please welcome Kendra Thornton, a former executive of Orbitz turned full-time mama:
Mother's Day is coming up soon, and I have the perfect treat to help you celebrate the day with your own mother and family. It is called the “Peach and Raspberry Parfait,” and it is flavorful, refreshing, colorful and perfect for Mother's Day!
Over the years, I have been to some amazing places, encountered incredible people and have experienced a fascinating array of cultures.
Although I have been to some wonderful destinations, I know that family is what really matters, so we have this little tradition each year in the Thornton household: I try to create a special memory with my children in the kitchen on Mother's Day.
I have also tasted many deliciously unique foods. My family and I traveled to Orlando, and while I was there I discovered this delectable treat at the Boardwalk Inn in Disney World. It is super easy to make, the ingredients are inexpensive, and making it as a family is a fun way to start off Mother's Day morning. Your family will be impressed with the delicious “Peach and Raspberry Parfait.” Serve it up with love this Mother's Day!
This recipe only takes five minutes to prep, and four servings are ready in a total of 20 minutes.
1 pint of vanilla ice cream (My favorite is the Slow Churned Edy's Yogurt Blends.)
2 peaches sliced into 2 1/2-inch chunks
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 ½ cups of raspberries
Pour the raspberries, peaches and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Toss the ingredients together to combine them. Do not use a utensil as it may crush the fruits.
Squeeze the juice of the half lemon over the fruit and sprinkle a bit of zest into the bowl. Toss the ingredients once more. Let the mixture sit for about 15 to 20 minutes, then place two scoops of vanilla ice cream into cocktail glasses or bowls. Top the ice cream with the fruit mixture and serve with love!
I know your family will love celebrating Mother's Day with this special treat just as much as mine does!
