Raspberry & Lime Parfaits (Paleo and Low Carb)

Paleo Raspberry and Lime Parfaits.001

Raspberries are in season right now in South Carolina so when the raspberries showed up in my CSA I wanted to make an easy summer dessert that was light and refreshing.  Earlier this year I made yummy Lemon Meringue Cookies made with Lemon Curd so naturally I needed to make a Lime Curd this summer.  I was also able to reduce the carbs by using Lime Essential Oil so it’s basically a delicious fat bomb full of health fats from egg yolks and butter/ghee.

Of course it is possibly to make it without the essential oils by replacing the Lime EO and water with another 1/4 cup of lime juice.
