How to make a parfait
Parfaits are really simple to create. Just layer ice cream and fruit or nuts or sauces to create a unique flavor combination in every bite. You can add as many or few layers as you'd like, here's how.
In a parfait or similar tall glass:
- Add a layer of ice cream
- Add a layer of chopped fruit
- Add a layer of ice cream (same flavor or a different flavor)
- Add another layer of fruit
- Add a final pretty scoop of ice cream.
- Top with chopped fruits, nuts and a cherry (strawberries make a fun topper too).
