No Sugar Added Raspberry Coconut Parfait

Standard

When I was a child, my mom used to make this incredibly decadent dessert that was a coconut pudding (molded into a beautiful rosette mold), with a sweet raspberry sauce that she drizzled over the top of it. I have since craved this dessert many times, but have not been able to get her to make it for me again, as it’s quite a labor intensive dish to make.

So the other day when I was craving something raspberry coconut in nature, I decided to give a yogurt base a try, not even really thinking of that long ago enjoyed dessert. Much to my surprise, when I dug in & took my first bite of this, I was shocked to be instantaneously taken back to the flavor & delight of that very same dessert from my youth. It was joy at first bite for me!

It’s for that reason that I know I will be making this dessert for myself over and over again, minus any intensive labor!
