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:

  1. Add a layer of ice cream
  2. Add a layer of chopped fruit
  3. Add a layer of ice cream (same flavor or a different flavor)
  4. Add another layer of fruit
  5. Add a final pretty scoop of ice cream.
  6. Top with chopped fruits, nuts and a cherry (strawberries make a fun topper too).
So many Swell Ice Cream flavors to choose from.
