Recipe: Parfaits

By Guest Writer Aldona Barron

With summer coming on, many of us girls are looking for a cool, easy snack to make. Something fun that I have discovered is making parfaits. This layered dish can be a simple, healthy snack or a gourmet dessert. It all depends on what you put in it.

For healthy parfaits, simply layer fresh fruit and yogurt in a parfait dish or drinking glass. If you choose, granola or nuts may be added for a nice crunch. Eat the parfait just like it is, or place it in the freezer a couple of hours for a frozen snack.

If you wish to make a dessert parfait, layer things such as ice cream, crushed cookies, chocolate syrup, nuts, etc. Top with whipped cream and other garnishes for a truly gourmet look.

Parfaits are a fun and simple project. Berries, fruit, nuts, spices, and different yogurt flavors…the possibilities are endless! I’ve even tried cooked and mashed sweet-potatoes layered with cinnamon-sugar, all-spice and vanilla yogurt! After freezing, it tasted like a frozen pumpkin pie, only with sweet-potatoes rather than pumpkin! So, be creative! Try things out! And have fun!
