More About National Parfait Day πŸ“

National Parfait Day kicks off breakfast, lunch, snack, or dessert just right on November 25th! This versatile dish serves up sweet or healthy in layers of goodness. Usually served in a specially styled glass, a parfait presents ingredients in appealing layers. Fruit, yogurt, or ice cream provide the basis for transitions between nuts, chocolate, or even whipped cream. A French word that literally means β€œperfect” was originally used to describe a kind of frozen dessert beginning in 1894. In the United States, most restaurants and ice cream shops serve parfaits in the traditional French style. They use ingredients such as parfait cream, ice cream, gelato, or pudding and layer them in a tall clear glass. To finish the parfait, a dollop of whipped cream is added or even fresh fruit or a drizzle of flavored liqueur. The Northern United States expanded on the parfait and began to use yogurt layered with nuts or granola or fresh fruits. Some of the fruits include but are not limited to strawberries, blueberries, bananas, or peaches. The idea spread quickly across all parts of the country, and the yogurt parfait gained popularity as a breakfast item.
