|An American parfait is a
dessert normally made by layering cream, ice cream, or flavored gelatin
dessert with other ingredients such as granola, nuts, yogurt, syrups,
liqueurs, fresh fruit, or whipped topping. A parfait is normally made
in a tall clear glass making all layers visible. The term parfait
traditionally refers to an ice-cream treat similar to a sundae.
Currently, the term 'yogurt parfait' is being popularized by specialty
retailers in America, being a layered concoction of fruit, yogurt and
granola or other cereal. It is eaten for breakfast or as a snack.
