Key Lime Parfait

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by GinnyP

Such a great dessert recipe given to me by an online acquaintance, that I actually purchased parfait glasses for this, though totally unnecessary. When I brought them to the table my father-in-law said, "Wow! Did you 'make' those?" Made me smile. : ) They were a hit, but the kid's don't like the coconut (surprise, surprise). (Cook time is chill time)

This is a great make-ahead dessert. We loved the combination of lime and coconut. A very nice finish to any meal. A little bit of the tropics on a cold and rainy night. :-)
