This post today comes from Donkey from Shrek because he says this… “you know what ELSE everybody likes? Parfaits! Have you ever met a person, you say, “Let’s get some parfait,” they say, “Hell no, I don’t like no parfait”? Parfaits are delicious!” So what is a Parfait? Well, a Parfait is a kind of frozen dessert, that dates right back to 1894, and I have been on a search to find 10 of the very best recipes…
Top 10 Unusual Parfait Recipes
10 – Hawaiian Passion Fruit
If you are looking for a decadent, but also surprisingly refreshing Parfaits then this one made with “Liliko’i” (Hawaiian passion fruit) they have a wonderful, sweet taste with the brownies giving them some much-needed bulk.
9 – Blueberry and Orange
While it might sound a little healthier that some of the others you will see in this list sadly it is not. But what it is, is a summery, refreshing dessert that is sure to make people keep coming back for more. Imagine one of these going down rather nicely at a summer BBQ at home.
8 – Lemon Mousse
Why not add a touch of class and art to your Parfaits with this amazing recipe. Made using Lemon mousse and the little hearts are done by piping a little bit of seedless strawberry jam into each layer.
7 – Avocado
You might not associate Avocados with making tasty desserts, but they really do. Even the link text calls it “pretty iffy regarding the ingredients” but I think it would be well worth a go. Making guide and “iffy” ingredients in the link.
6 – Lime
If you are looking for the perfect summer dessert to cool off, you have found it. Made with lime juice they offer a very unusual alternative to the normal Parfait recipes.
5 – Smoke Points
Sometimes you need to experiment with a recipe that at first might not sound that good, but tastes amazing. This one made with spiced peaches definitely ticks this box. But if you fancy trying something refreshingly different this is the one for you.
4 – Chocolate
This rather tasty individually decorated parfait puddings are dusted off with some cocoa powder that makes them look that extra bit special. But it is what is inside the cup that counts and this one made with dark chocolate, graham crackers and heavy whipped cream ticks all the right boxes.
3 – Pumpkin
Made with pure pumpkin, chilled heavy cream, and gingersnap cookies this is a spicy, sweet treat that is sure to give you a very happy brain freeze. Imagine this at a Halloween party!
2 – Lemon and Blackberry
Full of tasty fruit, frozen yoghurt and crushed amoretti cookies these would be perfect for a luxury after dinner treat.
1 – Strawberry
Most of you know by now that I love all things made with Strawberries, so it will come as no surprise to most of you that this mouth watering Parfait is my number 1. With layers of fresh fruit, crushed cookies and whipped cream it is sure to make the summer seem that little bit better.
