After such a big meal on Thursday you might want to find a lighter fair today. The problem is, you still want flavor… well, let’s see… how about a Parfait! It’s the perfect combination of ice cream, whipped cream, syrups and fruit.
No, it’s not particularly healthy but it’s no worse than that pumpkin pie you just had. If you stretch it just a bit, the fruit is healthy! The treat is layered fun of different flavors and tastes each time you take a bite. But basically, it’s just a sundae served in a fancy glass.
The choices are nearly endless. You can even use granola or cake as a layer if you so choose. Apparently the most popular flavor is white chocolate but there is no hard rule of what you can have (that’s always nice when you are having a dessert). And I guess you could serve it in a bowl instead of a glass but there is something to be said for seeing those layers making it a little more tempting.
How to celebrate – Make Parfaits for your family tonight. Make a parfait bar where people can create their own combinations. Relax in front of a nice fire and just enjoy your parfait in peace and quiet.
