This parfait is inspired by the honey, almond and coconut-studded pastry of the same name.

BEE STING PARFAIT

Start to finish: 20 minutes; servings: 2

2 tablespoons slivered almonds

2 tablespoons grated coconut, large flakes if available

2 tablespoons honey

1 banana, diced

1 pint vanilla ice cream

Heat the oven to 350 F. Spread the almonds and coconut on a baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Place in the freezer to chill for 5 minutes.

To assemble the parfaits, add a teaspoon of coconut and almonds to the bottom of each parfait glass. Top with a tablespoon of banana and a drizzle of honey. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Continue layering in this order until you've used all the ingredients and filled the glass. Serve immediately.
