Summer Berry Fruit Parfaits

These delicious parfaits are a sweet ending to a satisfying meal. Serve them in Martini glasses to make easy serving sizes in style.  They’re also pretty light despite their rich flavor and texture. It’s definitely dessert without the hurt.

You will need:

  • Set of 4 martini glasses
  • a loaf of pound cake
  • Strawberry lowfat yogurt
  • a bag of frozen mixed berries
  • honey
  • cinnamon

To start, combine 1 1/2 cups of frozen fruit and 1/3 cup of water in a small saucepot on medium heat.  Heat until simmering.  Remove from heat.  Add 2 or 3 tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon. Blend. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.

Prepare the pouncake by slicing in one inch slices.  This will help you break the slices into chunks to layer into the martini glasses.

Now it’s time to start layering! Spoon a tiny bit of fruit liquid into the bottom of the glass. You can save the fruit chunks for the next layers.  Add a few chunks of cake followed by some fruit mixture.  Dollop a few spoonfulls of yogurt and repeat until the glass is almost full.

Make cake your final layer on top.  Spoon the remaining fruit mixture over the top.

Chill the parfaits for 3o minutes. If you like, you can serve them instantly.  It’s up to you.
