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:


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


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.


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.


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.
