Today was the day for a staff lunch at hubby's office (the church), and we were going up to our Pastor's house for this lunch. The menu was simple and light, yummy mixed salad with a variety of toppings and dressings, and do it yourself sandwiches, which were yummy! But then came dessert.
In simple, clear, plastic drinking cups (who says dessert has to be fancy to be pretty and tasty), she served up fruit and yogurt parfaits....and the twist...fresh basil, and chocolate...go figure!!! I wish I would have taken a picture...I'll just have to make them myself and re-post.
Here's what you need:
Honey flavored Greek Yogurt
fresh basil leaves, cut in thin, short pieces
coconut (I didn't have this on mine)
whipping cream (I think, I didn't really notice what she melted the chocolate with)
In a parfait glass, or simple clear, plastic cup layer yogurt, sliced fruit and basil, continue a few more times, then top with melted chocolate and coconut if desired! The basil gave it a slight kick and adding the chocolate to it, jazzed this dessert up immensely.
