MANGO, RASPBERRY AND CARDAMOM PARFAIT (GF, DF, VG)

MANGO, RASPBERRY AND CARDAMOM PARFAIT (GF, DF, VG)



I have kept this recipe for quite a few months and kind of forgot about it... It was my approach for a recipe contest wherein I had to use almond milk, so I decided to share it with you now. Better late than never... 


It is so easy to make you won't believe it. Mango and raspberries appear to be one of those extraordinary combinations and along with the aromatic touch of cardamom it just works wonderfully.


MANGO, RASPBERRY AND CARDAMOM PARFAIT (GF, DF, VG)


As you may have figured out parfait means perfect in french. It is a cold or frozen dessert made by several layers of ice cream, whipped cream, cream... There are many variations of it so this is my version using home made jam made with fresh fruit and some chia seed pudding. The idea is to create perfect different layers in a glass, cup or glass jar so it makes it visually pretty.

I love making this parfait because of its simplicity and also because it is very versatile since it may be prepared as a healthy breakfast, a snack or a nice and quick dessert. I like making different combinations, sometimes with yogourt or with some granola to add some crunch to it... I've also made it with coconut milk and the result is super creamy, unctuous, yummy and it makes a perfect contrast with the raspberry tanginess. 


So here's the recipe...
