I have got 100+ fresh mangoes at home and no wonder I dream mango all the time :) All thanks to my sis and her family for delivering the mangoes to me :) Will dedicate this series to them :)

Mango Yoghurt Parfait1

Parfait is a dessert with layers of fruits and other ingredients :) Layering always give a great look to any dessert and I get instantly attracted to them. So thought of starting of my "Mango Mood" series with a simple yet stunning dessert - The Mango Yoghurt Parfait :)

Mango Yoghurt Parfait6


Ingredients:

Ripe mangoes - 3
Yoghurt(curd) 1 cup

Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp

Powdered sugar - 2 tblsp

Mango Jam - 2 tsp

Corn flakes - for topping


Mango Yoghurt Parfait4

Method:

Peel one mango and chop them into small cubes and keep it aside.

Puree two mangoes and spoon it into your serving glasses to form the first layer and reserve the rest.


Hang the yoghurt(curd) in a muslin cloth for a while to drain excess water. Collect it in a bowl and add the vanilla essence and powdered sugar to it and beat well to make a smooth paste. Spoon this into the glasses to make the second layer and reserve the rest.


Again spoon the mango puree followed by vanilla yoghurt alternatively.


Now just add a spoon of mango jam and line a layer of chopped mangoes over it.
Finally drop a spoon of vanilla yoghurt and top it with mango flavored cornflakes :)

Mango Yoghurt Parfait is ready :)

Doesn't it look yummy!!
Enjoy eating :)

Mango Yoghurt Parfait

Tips:

If you can find vanilla yoghurt ready at store then use it and skip the yoghurt procedure.

You can make such parfaits with your choice of fruits.

You can replace yoghurt with fresh cream too.
