Limoncello Parfaits | No-Bake Dessert


  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 1 lemon, zested

  • Sprinkle of sugar, optional

  • Lemon extract, optional

  • Splash of limoncello

  • Berries (raspberries and/or blackberries), one small container of each

  • Vanilla ice cream

  • Amaretti cookies, optional to serve


Serves: 4

Make these in a cocktail glass of your choice. 

Whisk up heavy cream in chilled bowl with zest of 1 lemon and a sprinkle of sugar (if using) to make your lemon whipped cream. If you bake, you may have lemon extract and, if so, add a ½ teaspoon per cup of cream. 

Start the parfait with a few raspberries and/or blackberries at the bottom of the glass and douse with a little well-chilled limoncello. Add a scoop of the best vanilla ice cream you can find and top with whipped lemon cream and more berries. Garnish with a curl of lemon peel and serve with a few amaretti cookies on the side (if using).
