This is a refreshing, super simple yet elegant dessert that can be put together in minutes. It is great as a make ahead dessert to end any dinner party on a fresh and fruity note.
2 cups cookie crumbs of choice
1 tin condensed milk
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (3-4 limes depending on size and juiciness,)
grated lime zest
1 cup whipped cream
1-2 bananas sliced
vanilla extract to taste
- For the cookie crumb layers, bash up any biscuits of your choice using your hands, a food processor or a plastic bag and a rolling pin. I used plain tea biscuits, but the recipe also works extremely well with coconut or chocolate cookies.
- mix together the remaining ingredients, keeping aside half of the lime zest for garnishing later on. Add lime juice to taste, depending on how tangy you like your desserts.
- Last but not least, layer up your parfaits in nice glasses, starting with the cookiecrumb mixture as a base. Top with the remaining freshly grated lime zest and devour!
