15 Minute Greek Style Dessert Parfaits

Written by in , Comments Off on 15 Minute Greek Style Dessert Parfaits

Parfaits are usually made with several layers, and the fun of it is that you can make it different each time. You can basically do anything that you want, but in general you’ll want to include a combination of different types of dessert layers. The following recipe can be changed depending on the types of ingredients that you want to lose

15 Minute Greek Style Dessert Parfaits Ingredients:

  • First layer (baked dessert)- 1 recipe Greek style dessert of choice, such as baklava or koulourakia
  • Second layer (creamy layer) – pudding, flavored Greek yogurt, or ice cream works for this layer – you will need 1 – 2 cups for this layer
  • Third layer (something to sprinkle) – can use candy sprinkles, chocolate chips, nuts, chopped fruit, or chopped baked goods (like crumbled koulourakia)
  • Whipped cream for a garnish (optional)

How to Make 15 Minute Greek Style Dessert Parfaits:

These parfaits are meant to be composed quickly, and you can use anything that you have on hand. In general, you will want three layers. If your dessert glasses are deep, you can repeat each layer more than once.

Select your first layer. You’ll likely want to roughly chop this layer so that it fits easily in the dessert glass. Line the glass with this layer.

Add your second layer. Plan on using about 2 tablespoons worth of whatever you choose for this layer.

Add your third layer. Plan to use about 1 tablespoon worth of whatever you choose for this layer.

At this point, you can decide to repeat the layers again, or you can leave it as is and garnish it with some whipped cream.
