Dessert is sacred and essential to one's well being and you cannot fight us on this. Stressed is dessert spelled backwards hence, we are beating mid-week blues this Wednesday with a glass of Strawberry Parfait which is sure to paint our gloomy moods, red with love.
Parfait is a French word to describe a custard-like puree or a rich cold dessert which is whipped up by boiling cream, egg, sugar and syrup or fruits with a smooth consistency. Since strawberry season is currently on the go in India, it is the perfect time to indulge in some and that’s when we stumbled upon a recipe of Strawberry Parfait which is super easy to make.
Check out the recipe of Strawberry Parfait here:
10-12 Digestive fibre biscuits
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup Whipped Cream
1 tbsp Strawberry Jam
14-16 chopped strawberry
1/4 cup sugar
