peach parfaitLow fat and low calorie, breakfast was never so much like a dessert.


Preparation Time:  10 minutes
Cooking Time:  0 minutes
Servings  4
Serving Size:

Ingredients:

1/2 cup coarsely crushed ginger snap cookies
1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
2 cups low fat peach yogurt
2 cups sliced or diced fresh or thawed frozen peaches

Directions:

Combine gingersnaps and pecans. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the mixture into each of four parfait or wine glasses. Layer each parfait as follows: 1/4 cup yogurt, 1/4 cup peaches, 1 tablespoon gingersnap mixture, 1/4 cup yogurt, 1/4 cup peaches and 1 tablespoon gingersnap mixture. Serve immediately or chill up to 2 hours before serving.

Tips:

A drizzle of peach liqueur will turn this breakfast into an evening dessert. A little minced crystallized ginger will add spice. Look for chocolate covered ginger in specialty shops and health food markets: diced into little nuggets of sweet spice, it adds a whole new dessert dimension to this dish.

Substitutions:

Toasted walnuts may replace the pecans. Look for peach soy yogurt, and try it instead of the dairy yogurt. Soy yogurt will work beautifully, for both breakfast and dessert. Add a teaspoon of maple syrup for extra sweetness, drizzled right on top.
