MANGO PARFAIT -- Parfait is an easy dessert. I prepare this for a simple, fast and 'perfect' breakfast or dessert. After all, 'parfait' is a French word that means 'perfect'...
Parfait is a kind of frozen dessert which began in France in the 1800's originally made with sugar syrup, egg and cream. Later on, American parfait made use of ice cream, flavored gelatin, fruits and nuts nicely layered in a tall, clear glass.
I like my parfait simple and healthy so I use mango and yoghurt - - two of the healthiest and most ancient food in the world. Both mango and yoghurt date back to more than 5,000 years ago in India. As far back as then, cowherdmen and cowherboys already ate mango and yoghurt as a deligthful snack.
Mango is an excellent source of Vitamin A, C and E.
Yoghurt is a 'grow' food - a perfect balance of protein and fats.
2 ripe mangoes
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 c yogurt
topping: 1 Tbsp toasted pinipig (chipped rice)
1. Peel mangoes. Scoop out flesh. Combine mangoes and sugar in a blender. Blend until smooth.
2. Spoon 3 Tbsp mango puree into a tall, clear glass. Add 3 Tbsp yoghurt. Repeat layers. Sprinkle toasted pinipig on top. Chill and serve.
