Mango-Kiwi Parfait

>> Thursday, August 5, 2010

So, now comes the treat for the day - a parfait. And when it is summer time, I don't think there is another fruit which I adore more than mango. This heavenly dessert is also known as Fool. But I still wonder, "Why is it called a Fool?".

These days mango parfait is one of the desserts that dominates our thoughts and ruling our dining table. And to give this dessert a strong taste, I've included kiwis to it.


A layer of mango yogurt, a layer of cream, a layer of mango and kiwi cubes and finally topped with cream. Hoo..lalala!! can I've more parfait?

In the picture you won't find the perfect layers. My mistake! coz I was drooling over the creamy texture and was not very careful while preparing the layers.. But I believe it still looks Yummy!! Isn't it?


Ingredients:

6 ounce mango low fat yogurt
2 tbsp whipped cream
1 cup chopped mango and kiwi fruit
whipped cream (for topping)


Method:

Put 2 tbsp flavoured yogurt to a parfait glass. Layer it with 1 tbsp cream. Top with chopped mango and kiwi. If you want, you can repeat the process. Serve topped with whipped cream and dried nuts.

This extremely easy dessert makes a grand finishing touch to your meal. The best part is that it's so quick to put together.

Great dessert Reshmi. By the way, Fool is an old English dessert comprising of crushed fruit and fresh cream, name comes from the French word foulé which means to crush.

Thanks for visiting my blog and give me the link to yours.
