WATERMELON & COCONUT SORBET PARFAITS
These simple, striking parfaits are the kind of dessert that wows guest but requires barely more effort than cutting fruit. Ripe watermelon cubes and coconut sorbet taste wonderful (and look gorgeous) together, needing only pinches of lime zest for a tropical inflection and toasted coconut for crunch.
