Nectarine & Strawberry Parfait
EatingWell Test Kitchen
“The nectarines, strawberries and cream in this strawberry parfait recipe are laced with a sweet wine syrup. For a party, make the components ahead and assemble the strawberry parfaits when you're ready to serve. ”
¾ cup sweet white wine, such as Sauternes or sweet Riesling
½ cup honey
2 ripe but firm nectarines, thinly sliced
2 cups quartered hulled strawberries
½ cup whipping cream or heavy cream
1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1Combine wine and honey in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil until reduced to about ½ cup, 6 to 10 minutes.
2Combine nectarines and strawberries in a medium bowl and toss with ¼ cup of the wine syrup. Refrigerate the remaining ¼ cup syrup for at least 10 minutes to cool.
3Beat cream in a medium bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold or beat in yogurt and the cooled wine syrup just until combined.
4Spoon a scant ¼ cup yogurt-cream into each of 4 dessert glasses or bowls and top with about ½ cup of the fruit mixture. Repeat with another layer of each.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the fruit and yogurt cream in separate containers for up to 4 hours.
