Mocha Martini Parfait

This weekend was one of the best weekends I’ve had in a while. The weather was perfect and the sunlight was beautiful. It was a perfect couple of days to enjoy the warm breeze, walk along the river, and enjoy some great company! It was incredibly refreshing. So of course, I had to welcome Spring with a fresh, and zesty parfait to top it all off!

Key elements in this delicious treat which take it over the top are it’s eco friendly ingredients!
