Beti’s Reflections

Bonjour, mes amis! I recently stumbled upon a delightful recipe during my culinary adventures in the heart of French cuisine. The Party Parfait Extravaganza Recipe, a gem among French Cuisine Desserts, caught my eye and tantalized my taste buds. It was love at first bite!


The Party Parfait Extravaganza is a festive dessert that serves 12 people. It’s a symphony of creamy custard, fresh fruits, and crunchy granola that will have your guests swooning. However, it’s important to note that this recipe isn’t suitable for those following Vegan Recipes, Gluten-Free Desserts, Low-Carb Meals, Sugar-Free Sweets or Dairy-Free Parfaits.


The ingredients for this Healthy Fruit Parfait are simple yet flavorful. The creamy custard is the base of our Homemade Custard Parfait and provides a rich contrast to the crunchiness of the granola. The mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries), bananas, peaches and grapes bring freshness and natural sweetness to our Granola and Berry Parfait. The honey-vanilla mixture adds an extra layer of flavor that makes this Easy Custard Dessert truly irresistible.


Now let’s dive into how to make Party Parfait Extravaganza! Start by washing all fruits under cold running water and patting them dry. Slice the bananas and peaches on a clean cutting board and halve the grapes. Combine these in a large bowl with your mixed berries for a Healthy Mixed Berry Parfait base. In another bowl whisk together honey and vanilla extract then pour over your fruit mixture ensuring all fruits are evenly coated.


Next comes the custard layering for our Homemade Custard Parfait – if you’re using pre-prepared custard you can skip straight to this step! Layer each parfait glass with custard followed by granola then top with your honey-vanilla coated fruit mixture. Repeat these layers until just below the rim of each glass.


Finish off your Party Parfait Extravaganza Recipe with whipped cream topping each parfait glass before garnishing with mint leaves for that final touch of elegance.
