Watermelon & Mascarpone Parfait

Layered desserts are always my favourite, obviously if am planning to make some special desserts for special occasions, i wont hesitate a second to make layered desserts just to please everyone's tastebuds. Its peak season of watermelon here, i seriously want to give a try to a simple and refreshing layered dessert with this summer fruit since a while. Before we left to summer vacation, we had a small get together with our close friends, obviously i prepared this watermelon and mascarpone parfait to serve as a dessert after our meal. Trust me, this refreshing parfait makes an elegant dessert after a heavy or a special meal. Very easy to make, we simply loved this refreshing dessert and got many appreciation from my friends for this catchy dessert.

When served chilled, this easy breezy parfait makes an excellent dessert to relish with your loved ones. If you want to go with other summer fruits, just go with any available fruits in your place and you can replace very well mascarpone cheese with whipped cream as well. If you are preparing this parfait dont forget to make a big batch as these desserts are seriously very addictive to indulge. Am running this week's blogging marathon with Layered Dish as this week's theme, hence am posting this incredible parfait for this week's theme.
