An old school French recipe dressed up in a modern robe to please us all. Healthy parfait recipe that binds together flavor as well as traditions.

As I most recently have a little time, I had been looking on the internet last week. In search of new, challenging ideas, inspirational recipes that I’ve never used before, to surprise my family with. Looking for a while yet could not find any interesting things. Right before I thought to give up on it, I stumbled on this delicious and simple dessert simply by luck at Suncakemom. The dessert seemed so tempting

on its snapshot, it called for quick actions.

It was not so difficult to imagine the way it’s made, its taste and how much boyfriend might want it. Mind you, it is extremely simple to impress the guy in terms of treats. Yes, I am a lucky one. Or maybe he is.Anyway, I visited the website and then used the comprehensive instuctions that had been coupled with nice pics of the procedure. It just makes life rather easy. I can suppose it’s a bit of a hassle to take snap shots in the midst of cooking in the kitchen as you may most often have sticky hands thus i sincerely appreciate the time and effort she devote for making this blogpost and recipe easily followed.

With that in mind I’m encouraged to present my own dishes in the same way. Appreciate your the idea.

I was tweaking the original mixture create it for the taste of my loved ones. I must tell you it had been an incredible outcome. They prized the flavor, the structure and loved getting a sweet such as this in the midst of a hectic workweek. They ultimately requested even more, a lot more. Thus the next time I am not going to make the same miscalculation. I’m going to multiply the quantity .

Original Parfait Recipe is from Suncakemom.


Pour water and agave syrup into a saucepan and put it on the cooktop to warm up.

Put egg yolks into a heat proof mixing bowl and place it over a saucepan of boiling water to beat them until creamy and light yellow.

Pour warm water-agave syrup mixture into the mixing bowl with the egg yolks whilst still whisking the egg yolks to get an airy light texture.

Keep whisking it on full speed until it gets double in size.

Leave it to cool a bit.

Meanwhile beat the heavy cream with the vanilla essence until hard.

When “yolk cream” cooled down, mix whipped cream in.

Put it in the freezer for 4-6 hours.


Prepare the fruits by cutting them into desired shape and size.

Prepare the nuts by crushing them into desired size.

Make the granola by heart or using our handy guide about How to make homemade granola.


Using parfait cups is optional as any cups would do but for fancy looking parfait we need fancy looking cups.

We can let our imagination run wild here and assemble it as we like.

Mind that as the parfait is a mousse like creature thus probably won’t pour nicely and evenly into any glass let alone a tall one leaving trails and marks on the side of the glass. Use a pastry bag to force it to the bottom if decoration is paramount.

Granola won’t cause any concern apart from having a habit of falling all around the glass no matter how hard we try to keep it on the ladle.

Fruit can be used fresh or frozen makes little difference and it’s just a matter of preference but if we like our parfait cold opt for the latter.
