"A great dessert for spring and summer when strawberries are in season. You can substitute light coconut milk, but you won't get the same flavor and silky texture. Two hours of the prep time is chilling/setting time."

An elegant and delicious dessert! We loved all the layers. The thyme was an interesting (and amazing) addition to the strawberry topping - we loved it! But that coconut layer is to die for... I'll be making this again, but add a bit more gelatin to the bottom strawberry layer so it sets up a little harder. Bottom line - this is a great dessert for company, and for a weekend indulgence as well! Thanks for sharing!
