Boozy Banana and Raspberry Parfait

I had wanted to type out this blog Wednesday last week so that it could be ready and scheduled for you guys by Friday last week. However my Wednesday was at the mercy of someone who could not keep time and just like that my whole day was wasted and ruined (and they did not apologize for keeping me waiting for 3 hours!! *flips table*). If you know me well, you know ‘African Timing’ in one of my top pet peeves and just like that my mood was severely dampened. I got home so tired, and quite disappointed, but decided to get my mood up by talking to you guys <3.I did that by holding an ‘ASK ME ANYTHING’ on all my social media platforms. My Facebook and Instagram audience are a bit more reserved and I think scared to actually ask me anything (why are you scared of me guys? I don’t bite) But my twitter fam went all out! That is where the party was! I laughed non-stop from 6 p.m to 11 p.m! When I told them to ask me anything, Lord, I opened Pandora’s Box and funny enough, I thoroughly enjoyed it! You can check it out here!

I finally got time later last week to type this blog and three other recipes I am looking forward to sharing with you in the coming weeks. So first, allow me to share something really sweet and delicious that my two younger sisters enjoyed and I know you will too!

Ikimuri Parfait

My 3 year old cousin, Michelle, is the most adorable fussy eater you will ever meet. She takes ages to chew and swallow her food let alone finish her meals. When she was staying with us during last year’s December holidays & we wanted her to eat faster, we would ‘bribe’ her with her favourite yoghurt which she would have only after she finished her food. This worked flawlessly and she ate so fast just so that she can have her yummy treat! We always gave her yoghurt because not only is it tasty but its healthy and very nutritious.
Today’s dish was inspired by the same concept- tasty and healthy. Sometimes we want to indulge in something delicious but one that is not too laden with sugar and preservatives. Therefore,when I want a healthy dessert, I always make my Ikimuri Parfait. ‘Ikimuri’ is a word from my mother tongue, Luhya language, which means a flower that is just starting to bloom. Because these parfaits I made were so pretty, I named them so since they do resemble young blossoms.

My sisters always enjoy this dessert and I am sure you will love this too.
