Unfortunately I can't take credit for this one myself! The applause has to go to Jean Modene, an awesome healthy mom and wife. She has a way of taking everyday recipes and making them healthier for her family and they are still so good! Trust me I Have sampled a few. This recipe is perfect for a hot summer day when light, fruity and refreshing are on the menu. I made this over the weekend for my family and it was delightful, everyone loved it. So here it is the much anticipated Lemon Dream Parfaits. Who knew a lemon could taste so good.
