fruit parfait

My midnight snack.

Unfortunately, Annenberg has fresh berries about 1% of the time (seriously, why is fresh fruit not a daily thing? Apples and bananas don’t count), so I indulged myself this evening with homemade fruit parfait!

Why settle for plain salad-bar hummus when you can make your own? Paired with homemade toasted pita chips, this delicious dip adds a dash of flavor to any meal.
