Parfait Recipe

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 searching on the internet the other day. In search of fresh, challenging thoughts, inspiring dishes that I’ve never tasted before, to amaze my family with. Looking for quite some time unfortunately could not come across too many interesting stuff. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I stumbled on this scrumptious and easy dessert by chance. The dessert looked so delicious on its pic, it required quick action.

It was simple enough to imagine the way it is made, its taste and just how much boyfriend is going to want it. Actually, it is quite easy to keep happy the man in terms of treats. Yes, I’m a blessed one. Or maybe he is.Anyway, I got into the website: Suncakemom and then followed the simple instuctions that had been coupled with superb shots of the method. It just makes life faster and easier. I could suppose it is a bit of a inconvenience to shoot snap shots in the midst of cooking in the kitchen because you usually have sticky hands and so i highly appreciate the effort and time she placed in for making this blogpost .

Having said that I’m encouraged presenting my own dishes in a similar way. Thanks for the idea.

I was fine tuning the initial recipe to make it for the taste of my family. I have to say it turned out a great success. They enjoyed the taste, the thickness and loved getting a treat like this in the midst of a lively week. They quite simply asked for more, many more. Hence the next time I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I am going to twin the volume .

Many Thanks to SunCakeMom for the luscious Parfait Recipe.


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.
