Easy Apricot Parfait

30 Dec

IMG_7566…”And a parfait.”

“What’s a parfait?”

“It’s a trifle kind of thing except with muesli.”

“Right”.

So went the conversation regarding food for our deck warming brunch. Little parfait shooters were an essential part of any breakfast function when I was on the beauty media circuit. Quasi-healthy, easily eaten with a little spoon without lipstick smudges, pretty to look at but cheap to cater. Wins all round.

I bought a beautiful bag of little apricots from my gorgeous Chinese lady grocer, she always has the best bargains on big bags of almost-over-the-edge fruit and veg. Perfect for jams and conserves, poaching, or grilling, for instance!

Halved and sprinkled with a little sugar, they went under the grill for 5 or 10 mins (watched as carefully as possible when you have a 2 year old ‘helper’).

Then to construct your parfait. Something wonderful about a recipe that more construction than cooking. You’ll need a bag of the snazziest muesli you can find, and a big tub of premium yoghurt – I luurve Jalna Creamy Vanilla. Just layer everything up and sprinkle something pretty on top. Voila! Beauty editor food in a serving size to actually satisfy hunger!
