Kiwi & Strawberry Frozen Dessert ParfaitServers 4 Drinks
6 frozen kiwis [skin off & flesh scooped out]
9 frozen strawberries [discard leaf & wash]
1/2 cup of coconut water or coconut milk
2 teaspoons of agave syrup or honey
Nutri-bullet, blender or food processor
2 small bowls
2 zip-lock bags or 2 medium size container for storage
2 spoons for assembly
2 small to medium glass cups for serving
Place your washed strawberries & kiwi flesh into separate plastic containers or bags; the main purpose for freezing them separately is to not mix the colors but to blend the greens and reds separately so we can assemble the parfait into colored sections when ready to serve. Freeze the fruits overnight or for a minimum of two hours.
Once the fruits have frozen, take them out of the freezer and separate them into the two small bowls [one bowl green, another bowl red]. In your blender pour in your ¼ cup of coconut water or coconut milk with the frozen strawberries and one teaspoon of agave syrup. Blend until smooth. Once blended pour in your frozen smooth strawberry ice cream onto the same strawberry bowl and place into the freezer until ready to assemble. Wash your blender clean to prepare the batch of kiwi ice cream. Pour in your blender the other ¼ cup of the remaining coconut water or coconut milk, the frozen kiwi flesh and the remainder of the one teaspoon of agave syrup or honey. Blend until smooth. Pour your kiwi frozen ice cream onto the bowl were the kiwi was placed before and prepare for assembly.
Place your two frozen ice cream bowls next to the serving glasses for faster assembly. With one spoon scoop out the kiwi frozen ice cream and place it at the bottom of the serving glass, compress it with the back of your spoon to get a flat surface for the next layer. Take another clean spoon and scoop out the strawberry frozen ice cream and place it on top of the kiwi layer and compress it to make another flat layer; remember you can scoop out as much of the strawberry ice cream you’d like to have for the middle section, remembering to leave some for the other serving glass. Once your two layers are done repeat this step using your kiwi frozen ice cream for your last layer. Repeat same steps for the next serving glass [see picture]. Serve and enjoy!
You can top these frozen parfaits with sliced strawberries, sliced or cubed kiwis and you can even add a little crunch by adding granola, nuts and even chunks of dark chocolate or goji berries.
