National Parfait Day

FreshFruitParfaitNovember 25 is National Parfait Day! Literally meaning “perfect” in French, parfaits are the perfect way to make any sour day a little more sweet.

Parfaits originated as a frozen dessert in France in 1894, and were traditionally made with sugar syrup, cream, and eggs. Parfaits in the United States differ slightly, but many different takes on the parfait have been created. You can go with a more desert like parfait that layers ice cream, parfait cream, Jell-O, and whipped cream or the slightly healthier option of yogurt layered with granola, nuts, and fruit! Just as long as you create a sweet and creamy concoction in a tall glass, your parfait can include pretty much anything.

Here are some of the most scrumptious parfait recipes we could find – celebrate by trying one out!
