As we speak, my husband is devouring the blueberry parfait in this photograph, and I keep hearing comments like, “Oh, this is so good.” And getting my meat-and-cake-eating-man to eat anything fresh and uncooked means it must be true!
What’s also really nice about this blueberry parfait (besides how healthy it is) is that it took just minutes to whip up. I put the cashews in a bowl of water before I went to sleep last night, and when I got up, I rinsed them well, and pureed them with 4 other ingredients, before putting the cream in the fridge to chill. Six or so hours later, and it’s ready to serve. Super easy, super delicious.
