|Mixed Berry Parfait|
Parfaits are such an easy and impressive dessert to throw together with hardly any preparation involved at all. I'm planning on making (tinned) peach, yoghurt and almond parfaits tonight for dessert but I'm going to have to leave it until the last minute for 'the fussy one' . She'll probably just have ice cream in a parfait glass.
Parfaits are just a matter of pureeing or chopping whatever fruit you have on hand and layering it with plain or flavoured whipped cream, custard, marscapone, ricotta, mousse, yoghurt, creme fraiche or other dairy product. Maybe adding a crunchy layer of crumbled biscuits, nuts, granola or crumbled cake and/or topping with a fruit syrup, more fresh fruit or nuts. You can make it full or low fat. You're only limited by your imagination. Here's a few other combinations to try.
