Honey & Vanilla Creme Anglaise Parfaits

This is a very simple recipe. This is a grain-free, GAPS, SCD and paleo-friendly, honey-sweetened delicacy. Various layers can be made with fresh fruit, sun-leathers or compotes and candied nuts as well. One of my favorite combos is layers of rich honey-vanilla creme anglaise, grain-free cherry-almond crunch, whipped cream from a local dairy and a honey-raspberry syrup. Oh yeah, you can make them with ice-cream as well 😉
