Recipes with Rose: Pretty Sweet Parfait

This edition of Recipes with Rose is inspired by a Whole Foods recipe she found a few weeks ago. Its benefits for your insides and out are too good not to share!
We've created a BeeAlive spin off the original "double-duty-berry-beauty" recipe, but we think our Royal Jelly version is still "pretty sweet;" sweet for your taste buds and your health, while beneficial for pretty skin!
*Feel free to add-on, increase or reduce ingredients as you desire. If you're gluten-free like Rose, substitute ground flax seeds for the wheat germ!
Beauty Masque
Toss all ingredients into a mixing bowl.
Hand mix (and mash) everything together for about a minute, or use a food processor. The consistency should be creamy but not too runny.
Apply the mixture to your already cleansed face, using a brush to keep your hands from getting too sticky!
Let masque set for 15-30 minutes. You’ll feel your skin begin to tighten as each ingredient works its magic!
Berry Parfait

This treat is so easy to make, it could become your summer staple breakfast, snack or dessert!
In a container with a fairly wide mouth, such as a recycled glass jar, layer the same ingredients used for the masque.
Start with about 1/3 cup Greek yogurt. Add 3 tablespoons wheat germ, sliced strawberries, whole blueberries, sliced banana and whole raspberries.

Drizzle BeeAlive Sweet Energy Formula Royal Jelly over the top, sprinkle on dried lavender buds, grate lemon zest across the top and finish off with a sprig of mint!

Deliciousness in only 4-5 minutes! The best part: Wear your masque as you prepare and indulge in your parfait -- then wash it off to reveal glowing skin!
