Vanilla Berry Parfaits

Delicious and easy, this is a fabulous mix of berries and yogurt! If you like, you can make a thin layer of graham crackers or granola in each vanilla/berry layer. That gives it a little more crunch.

Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Parfait

Lemon yogurt, fresh blueberries, and honey graham crackers make an easy and delicious breakfast parfait. Tasty enough too for a light dessert. Eat immediately if you want crisp crunchy graham crackers.

Summer Berry Parfait with Yogurt and Granola

This large parfait can be made for a delicious breakfast - or it can be halved for a yummy snack. Enjoy it using fresh or frozen blueberries, but fresh strawberries are recommended.

Berry Yogurt Crunch

Rating: Unrated

Yogurt, fresh berries, and a surprise ingredient give this dish a somewhat cheesecake-like flavor but with a fraction of the fat and calories. Let the berry-yogurt mixture chill awhile so flavors mingle and mellow. Make a flavor change by substituting instant white chocolate pudding mix. I've served this for dessert, but it's good as a breakfast treat, too!

Lemon Syllabub

This is a deliciously light, creamy, sophisticated little dessert from days gone by. I first tasted it at a supper given by a lecturer in seventeenth-century literature when I was at college, and it took our tastebuds right back to the Restoration. It can be prepared as either a parfait or a punch--please note that either version contains alcohol, so you may not want to serve this to younger family members.

Cannoli Cream Dessert

This is my version of an elegant cannoli dessert! It is perfect for a romantic evening!

Whipped Cream Zabaglione

Rating: Unrated

This zabaglione is different because it incorporates cream. I have viewed other recipes and this varies a lot. Serve chilled with fresh fruit of your choice. To make sure zabaglione is the right consistency, run the whisk through and see that it falls in a steady stream standing on itself as it lands in the bowl.

Key Lime Pie Mini Dessert

This dessert is light, refreshing, a little tangy, and a little sweet. It has the luscious taste of key lime pie with the lovely presentation of a parfait. Everybody has room for a mini dessert, and they're the perfect end to a holiday party or even a sweet finish to a game day get-together. Garnish with whipped cream, grated lime zest, and leftover graham cracker crumbs.

This is a quick and easy way to top off any meal with the light taste of sweet berries. You can use fresh seasonal berries or the frozen ones work just as well. Top with a few berries and mint leaves for garnish.

Easy recipe - great served in a tall glass with long spoon. Layers of honey-coated oats, yoghurt custard and bananas make this a healthy kids favorite ..... although I've known adults to ask for seconds!!!
