Breakfast Parfait with Mango Yogurt
Aam Doi Breakfast Parfait
A breakfast parfait is a breakfast in a glass that brings together yogurt, fruit and muesli. Perfect, right? Well, that what it means in French - parfait=perfect. Typically a frozen dessert made using eggs, cream and sugar syrup, dating back to 1894, this breakfast parfait contains none of the above.
You can create your own versions of breakfast parfaits using seasonal fruits, plain or fruit yogurts and cereal / granola / muesli of choice. Sprinkling the parfait with a few toasted nuts, dried fruit or seeds, adds to the flavour and crunch. Diabetics can use plain unsweetened yogurt. A breakfast parfait gives a good mix of protein, fiber, calcium, carbs and anti-oxidants to start the day.
This parfait is made using Mother Dairy Aam Doi which is a thick mango yogurt, muesli, chopped bananas, pomegranates and toasted sesame seeds. If you don'd find the ready mango yogurt, you can make some by placing plain yogurt overnight in a muslin covered sieve inside a refrigerator and mixing some mango pulp into it just before assembling the parfait.
