Strawberry Parfait

Don't expect this to be your average parfait. It's raw and uses a sea-veggie called Irish Moss as one of the main ingredients. So if you are adventuresome why not give it a try. It has to set up in the fridge for some time as I explained below.

Now that you've reached this point, resume blending making sure that the last two ingredients are very well blended into the mixture.

You can put the mixture in parfait glasses or one big glass container. If you use a big container give it extra time to set up. That is what I did.

Put into the fridge for 30-40 minutes for a parfait glasses and at least 3 hours for a large container. Check the parfait, if you used the big container and it is still liquid in the middle after 3 hours leave it longer. It will set up, mine did and it was very nice in texture.

This will keep for about 2 days in the fridge. We ate ours in two days, we really liked it. Be adventuresome, use raspberries or blueberries instead of the strawberries for a different flavor.
