Welcome back for a whole week of new recipes from many, many bloggers and giveaways from several of our sponsors!
Today I am featuring a recipe using Pacari Chocolate. Pacari Chocolate is organic chocolate from Ecuador and is also a family-owned business. They have several unique flavors, among those is Andean Rose Geranium which I decided to use in my recipe today!
Before I received my chocolate, I was trying to think about the different healthy recipes that I could feature but I didn't know which flavors I'd be receiving. All of the ideas I quickly threw out the window when I received my package of this amazing chocolate. I was drawn to the rose infused chocolate bar and immediately started thinking of ways I could use rose and chocolate in a recipe.
I remembered my mango lassi parfait that I made over the summer that used rosewater as well as a recipe that I've been wanting to make that uses a raspberry rose jam, so I decided to mix the two flavors and make a raspberry rose parfait.
This recipe is very easy to make and takes only minutes to prepare. It is also pretty versatile and you can play with the flavors and the toppings. I actually originally was planning on using plain yogurt, but when I opened the yogurt it was pink... then I looked at the package and it was strawberry banana. I was not going back to the grocery store, so I decided to just give it a try. I knew the strawberry and rose flavors would go well together, but wasn't sure how awful it would be with a little banana mixed it. To my surprise, the strawberry banana yogurt worked very well with the rose so I was very happy that I didn't have to remake it!
So give this recipe a try! You can start preparing it the night before, then assemble and take it to go the next morning!
