You may ask me 'parfait is normally easy, so why all this work of making cups?' Then my answer would be ' you need some fun every now and then! ' And also this cups are great presenters, next time when you host a breakfast party or any such that needs parfaits, make this cups and get wow's! The benefit I like most about these cups is...I don't need to wash the parfait cups or use plastic!
If you are someone who don't like parfaits, I would highly recommend using flavored yogurt in the place of regular one. I mostly use vanilla soy yogurt, but you can use any flavor you love, like strawberry, coconut etc..And also in the beginning try adding fruits or nuts you like the most, it can be just bananas or just apples, don't take the stress of making it look good with colorful fruits and throw them if you don't like.
