The focus of today's Tuesday's Tumblr Favorites is the color "pink". Call me girly, and that's okay because the color pink represents caring, compassion and love. The pink color stands for unconditional love and understanding, and is associated with giving and receiving care. Pink is romantic and intimate as it tones down the physical passion from the red color and replaces it with a gentle and loving energy. Its calming effect on our emotional energies can relieve feelings of anger, aggression and neglect, and it is the symbol of "hope".
Enjoy today's everything pink! Be sure to check out the pink dessert at the bottom!!

The power of pink! And, what could be better than pink lemonade? Try this yummy dessert from Home Made Hooplah.
No Bake Pink Lemonade Cheesecake Parfaits
SERVINGS: 4 PARFAITS
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 tbsp granulated sugar
3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 cup heavy whipping cream, very cold
8 oz cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp dry pink lemonade mix
food coloring (2 drops red gel coloring, if desired)
In a small bowl, mix together graham cracker crumbs and granulated sugar. Using a fork, continue to stir while pouring in melted butter. Fluff with a fork until there are no large clumps and all the graham crackers are damp. Set bowl aside.
Using a stand mixer (or a hand mixer + large bowl), beat cold whipping cream on high speed until it doubles in size and forms stiff peaks. Set bowl aside.
In a mixer, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and pink lemonade mix until there are no longer any clumps of cream cheese visible.
Pour cream cheese mixture in with fluffed heavy cream. Mix together on medium speed. If desired, add food coloring at this time.
Decorate serving glasses as desired, whether you have one layer each of graham crackers and cheesecake, or multiple layers of both. When adding graham cracker layers, do not worry about packing it down like you would for a standard cheesecake crust, because you are not baking this. Just lightly pour the graham cracker in and keep it loose.
Chill cheesecakes at least 1 hour before serving. Add sprinkles on top if desired.
Have a lovely evening!
