Home ~Great Summer Dessert~ June 10, 2014 I highly recommend this for Father’s Day coming up!!! Pamper your loved one on Father’s Day and surprise him with this special dessert. 🙂 Vanilla Lemon Fruit Parfait Ingredients: 1 cup whole milk 2 tablespoons lemon zest 2 tsp vanilla flavoring 4 egg yolks 1/2 cup granulated sugar 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon butter at room temp 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 2 cups seasonal fruit, strawberries, blackberries, and rasberries Optional: toasted almonds Directions: In a small pot, bring the milk and the lemon zest to a boil over medium heat. Remove the pan from the heat and cool for a few minutes. In a large bowl, mix together the egg yolks, sugar, flour, and vanilla. Pour the milk mixture into the bowl, and whisk until smooth. Place mixture back into pot over medium heat, and whisk until smooth, and the sauce thickens. Remove pan from heat, and add butter. Whisk in the lemon juice. Transfer pastry cream to a bowl, and place plastic wrap over the top to prevent a film from forming. Chill in refrigerator for a hour. Prepare the fruit, and wine glasses. Layer the wine glasses with fruit, and pastry cream. Repeat until you have about 2 or 3 layers. You can sprinkle toasted almonds over the top and serve. KALI OREXI!

I think our parfait will have to contain sugar free, non-fat, Greek yogurt instead of that gorgeous pastry cream, but oh how I love pastry cream!!! 🙂 Loading... Kouzounas Kitchen June 11, 2014 at 4:58 pm Reply Oh really, yeah this pastry cream is pretty darn good. Especially in my parents eyes. LOL Yes, Greek yogurt is the healthier route, but I swear this recipe is a must try. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by and enjoying. Loading... Elaine @ foodbod June 10, 2014 at 7:34 am Reply Nice!!!
