Parfait Recipe..

It's time for a quick but delicious recipe. Wednesday has always been a new-recipe day for me =) This time, I'd like to post a recipe of parfait. Parfait always looks pretty, whether it's in a glass or a jar. Always look lovely. Commonly parfait is a layered frozen dessert. It's always a perfect dessert for an intimate party. This time it's a recipe of blueberry pie yogurt parfaits by Mix and Stir. It's so easy but I think I'm gonna try change the blueberry to strawberry. Enjoy!
