Amazingly sweet and flavourful, despite having no added sugar at all, this parfait has a tantalizing mix of textures and an after-effect that’s the complete opposite of chocolate guilt. Chunks of mango and whole pistachios are layered with orange blossom Greek yogurt.

This romantic dessert truly lives up to its name: parfait, meaning ‘perfect’ in French. This will leave you feeling fresh and energized and ready to enjoy the rest of your lives together. Or at least the night… What better way to say ‘I love you’ than that?
Chunks of mango and whole pistachios are layered with an orange blossom water-scented Greek-style yogurt (or a soft lebneh) and topped with fresh pomegranate. You can, of course, mix it up and throw in whatever you have on hand. If you need it sweeter, mix a little honey in with the yogurt, or just drizzle a bit on top. And don’t think this is just for dessert – it makes a gorgeous breakfast too!Print
Curious about her British mother's seemingly bizarre love of cheese & onion sandwiches, Ruby moved to England and discovered an island full of people eating them. She now lives among them, works as a freelance writer and photographer and yes, occasionally enjoys a good cheese & onion.
