August has gone fast and spring is coming! I've just got in time to post this parfait recipe to ANU's August Event - Berries - Strawberry Dessert. Strawberry is not only a tasty fruit with lovely colour, it also has lots of health benefits such as high in anti-oxidents, regulate blood sugar level and cleansing skin. However you need to consume 3-4 times a week to get the benefit. For more information on strawberry, please click here. This is a simple and fast dessert, hope you enjoy it!
