“Raw Paleo Lime Parfait”

Treat Mom with this delightful and refreshing “Paleo” dessert on Mother’s Day! Made with superfoods that you probably have on hand, “Raw Paleo Lime Parfait” is likely to become your spring & summertime favorite!

Since the crumble topping is so tasty and stays fresh for a couple weeks when stored in a covered glass bowl in the refrigerator, I made a double batch. You, too, will find yourself sprinkling it on fresh fruit & other frozen treats!

Enjoy!
