Recipe - Fresh Cut Fruit Parfait


1 cup of Simply Fresh Fruit (Tropical)
1/4 cup of Simply Fresh Pineapple
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1 Tbs. sugar, plus more as needed
Pinch of salt
1 Tbs. Cointreau or rum (if desired)
1 pint coconut ice cream or sorbet

In a bowl, combine the fruit, lime zest, lime juice, the 1 Tbs. sugar, the salt and the Cointreau. Stir, taste and add additional sugar if needed. Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour.

Remove the ice cream from the freezer to soften until it can be easily scooped. Divide half of the fruit among 6 parfait or pilsner glasses. Add 1 medium scoop of ice cream to each glass and carefully press into the fruit. Divide the remaining fruit among the glasses, spooning it over the ice cream. Top each glass with one more scoop of ice cream. Place the parfaits in the freezer for up to 2 hours before serving.
Serves 6.

Serving Tip: If this dessert is left in the freezer for more than 2 hours, the fruit will become too hard.
