Strawberry Smash Parfait

Serves 6
Time 2 hr 25 min
This light and delicious parfait is perfect for a summertime dessert or a filling breakfast treat. If needed, make the cashew cream a day or two in advance and keep refrigerated.
Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch fine sea salt
  • 1 (16-ounce) container strawberries hulled and chopped (about 3 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh basil
  • 2 cups diced cantaloupe or honeydew melon
  • 1/3 cup toasted sliced almonds
Method

Place cashews in a bowl and cover with warm water. Let sit 2 hours to soften. Drain soaked cashews and discard liquid. Place cashews, 3/4 cup fresh water, honey, vanilla and salt in a blender or food processor and purée until smooth.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mash half of the strawberries with a fork or potato masher until juicy. Stir in remaining chopped strawberries and basil. In parfait glasses, layer cashew cream, strawberries, melon and almonds. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
